A ground-based navigation beacon that emits pulsed signals which are picked up by aircraft making an instrument (blind) approach in landing. The signal is transmitted to the aircraft's L-scan cathode-ray indicator, producing information about the aircraft's range and position, relative to the runway it is to land on.
