VOR/LOC ILS Antenna System for Mach 2+ Aircraft
108 - 118 MHz and 328 - 336MHz
The 21-20-85 VOR/ILS LOCALISER AND GLIDESLOPE antenna system comprising of a pair of high-strength blades (P/N 21-20-85A and 21-20-85B) for horizontal mounting, one on each side of a vertical stabiliser, together with an external cable harness (P/N 21-80-56).
When installed, the blades act as a loop for VOR/LOC and as a forward looking dipole for GLIDESLOPE. The combined output from the 21-80-56 is connected to a diplexer (P/N 21-80-35) which divides the signal into separate VOR/LOC and GLIDESLOPE signals, both of which derive equally from each half of the antenna system.
Mechanical design of each blade comprises an internal printed circuit half loop, foamed-in-place into a high strength epoxy-glass radome fitted to an aluminum alloy base block having an integral mounting flange. Structural design ensures high side loading acceptance as required on high speed military aircraft.
