A feasibility study of evaluating the site effects on ILS and MLS using analytical and computational techniques is presented. The problem of site effect evaluation is divided into three stages: terrain modeling, ray tracing and field evaluation. Innovative techniques are introduced at each stage to make the model versatile enough to handle most general terrain contours and surface conditions and also reduce computational requirements to a minimum. The result is a scheme that can evaluate most terrain types on a mini/microcomputer. A summary of results for actual sites is presented.
