It is pointed out that fully automatic hands-off landing (autoland) capability for commercial aircraft, using the Global Positioning System (GPS), has not been demonstrated, and that ground multipath errors limit vertical positioning accuracy.

The precise velocity information available could substantially reduce the vertical accuracy requirement for autoland.<>
