HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

slide3
Performance Based Navigation

Performance Based Navigation uses the GPS satellites.

It sets performance standards or requirements for each phase of flight.

This is called REQUIRED NAVIGATION PERFORMANCE or RNP for short.

The approach RNP may be as low as .11 miles.

RNP navigation also requires on-board monitoring and crew alerting functions.

slide4
Required navigation performance (RNP) versus Actual Navigation Performance (ANP).

ANP (the actual navigational performance of the aircraft) works like this:

The aircraft must be within the containment area (2 X RNP) for 99.999 % of the flight time.

The statistical chance of exiting containment without alerting the crew is 10 to the minus 4.

GPS Augmentation

Augmentation uses computers and known positions to give GPS navigation even more accuracy.

Augmentation can be a Ground Based Augmentation System or GBAS (also called LAAS or GLS).

GLS Capabilities

Definable Touchdown Point

Honeywell GBAS SmartPath System

Definable Touchdown Point

An ILS system provides a single defined vertical path that places the aircraft at the same point on the runway each landing. However, SmartPath GBAS approaches can provide variable geometric paths and multiple touchdown points to the same runway.

GLS Capabilities

Variable Geometric Path

Honeywell GBAS SmartPath System

GLS Capabilities: Definable Glide Path Angle

An ILS system provides a single defined glide path forcing the aircraft to fly the same descent angle for every approach. An ILS cannot be reprogrammed to vary this glide path angle……GLS CAN! This allows an airport to provide varying angles to assist with wake turbulence separation for adjacent runways.

RNAV/RNP & GLS

Complementary Systems

RNAV (RNP) & Honeywell GLS SmartPath System

Complementary Systems providing MAXIMUM Benefits

to States, Airports and Operators

RNP and GLS are not an either/or system. Instead a combination of these two technologies will provide systemic benefits that are unparalleled in aviation.

HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

slide16

Fusion – RNAV/RNP & GLS

Maximized Operational Benefits

  • RNAV/RNP for curved segments GLS for final approach segment
  • ILS: stabilized on the localizer at 10 NM or more
  • GLS: multiple final approach segments as close as 4NM
  • GLS minimums 200’ Cat I
  • Cat II/III 2012-2014
  • GLS is precision approach
  • RNAV/GLS fastest/easiest implementation

RNAV/RNP & GLS

Complementary Systems

  • Honeywell GBAS SmartPath System – An Integrated Solution
    • RNAV / RNP / GLS can provide repeatable curved paths to each runway end
    • RNAV / RNP / GLS can shorten flight tracks to each runway end
    • RNAV / RNP / GLS can provide new tracks to each runway

Fusion of GLS with an RF turn transitions can provide defined separation between aircraft traffic and restricted areas

RF Legs provide repeatable & predictable paths to each runway with GLS accuracy on the final segment

Future Landscape

Performance-based Navigation

In the not too distant future, most terrestrial based navigation aids will be decommissioned.

  • RNP approaches will replace current terrestrial based non-precision approaches.
  • According to the FAA, WAAS LPV and GBAS will replace ILS as the precision approach system.
  • ADS-B will replace most terrestrial based radar systems.

Going forward: Civil Aviation Authorities, aircraft operators and airport managers will need to better understand the impact of the technological developments and the changing landscape.
