It is a Transponder Landing System that is rarely used and the only place it is known to be used is in the south pole.
What is the GLS?
It is similar to an ILS. It's components is GNSS, GBAS, VHF Data Broadcast

If you see an "RA" on an approach charted minimums it means what?
If an approach chart says ILS or LOC then it means that...
