Professor Brian O'Keeffe was intimately involved in the development of the INTERSCAN MLS in a joint project involving the Department of Transport, the CSIRO and AWA. He set out the fascinating story of how Australia was able to influence the world, through ICAO, in the selection of this 'next generation' blind-landing aid in the Transactions of the Institution of Engineers, Australia, Electrical Engineering (Vol. EE 16 No. 2, June 1980)
