1 Certification of ICAO compliant GBAS Cat-I in Australia Keith McPhersonManager GNSS
2 ICAO Document “A32-19: Charter on the Rights and Obligations of States Relating to GNSS Services” ……….2. Every State and aircraft of all States shall have access, on a non-discriminatory basis under uniform conditions, to the use of GNSS services, including regional augmentation systems for aeronautical use within the area of coverage of such systems.4. Every State providing GNSS services, including signals, or under whose jurisdiction such services are provided, shall ensure the continuity, availability, integrity, accuracy and reliability of such services, including effective arrangements to minimize the operational impact of system malfunctions or failure, and to achieve expeditious service recovery.

13 Current Status GBAS Cat-I ICAO GBAS Cat-I SARPs already issuedApproved ICAO compliant system in Australia (Part 171 change) in 2008 at Sydney International AirportStrong support from international airlines Qantas, Lufthansa, Fedex, Continental Air MicronesiaSydney Beta GBAS Cat-I – installation completed October 2005Sydney Beta GBAS Cat-I – first broadcast 29 October 2005DFS Germany has a beta GBAS Cat-I (Frankfurt, soon Bremen)AENA Spain has a beta GBAS Cat-I (Malaga)Memphis Tennessee has beta GBAS Cat-1Global reach of GBAS Cat-I is increasingGoal - gate to gate precision navigational service for aircraft
14 B-737NG GLS Certification Status Certification Flight TestVerification, validation completeDemonstrated at SeaTac & Moses Lake using Beta LAASOperations (including automatic landings) demonstrated at adjacent airports: Ephrata, Boeing Field & Paine FieldTest airplane flown against FAA prototype ground station at Rio de Janeiro (Galeao) with approaches to adjacent airport (Santos Dumont)QANTAS- 9 B-737NG with GBAS Cat-1 avionics- 24 B-737s may be retrofitted with GBAS Cat-1 avionicsBoeing and Airbus plan to introduce GLS on all forward fit aircraft and retrofit where cost effective
15 A-380 GLS Certification Status QANTAS will take delivery of 12 x A-380s with GBAS Cat-I avionicsOther Airbus aircraft to be procured will be fitted with GBAS Cat-I avionicsBoeingB-737NG, B-787, B-777 (New), B will all gave GBAS Cat-1 as standard avionics fitment
16 Australian Augmentation Experience LAAS SCAT-1 Melbourne Airport (Honeywell SLS-2000)LAAS SCAT-1 Canberra Airport (Raytheon DIAS-3100)LAAS SCAT-1 Avalon Airport (Honeywell SLS-2000)LAAS SCAT-1 Norfolk Island (Honeywell SLS-2000)GBAS CAT-1 Sydney Airport (Honeywell SLS-3000)
17 ICAO Compliant GBAS Cat-I in Australia Airservices Australia negotiated with Honeywell International to bring an ICAO compliant GBAS Cat-I to completionApproximately 22 months to complete RTCA DO-178B/278 compliant software – commenced 10 April 2006Approximately 6 months of certificationCivil Aviation Safety Authority involved from Day 1Aim is to have CASA approve Part 171 change to allow operation of completed system by 3rd quarter 2008 or earlierGermany, Spain and USA offered to assist and those offers were accepted.GNSS Technical Memorandum of Cooperation signed with FAA 9 February 2006
18 2nd Last MessageNew aircraft are being fitted with GBAS Cat-I avionicsB-737s will be retrofitted with GBAS Cat-I avionicsQantas has taken the lead internationallyGBAS Cat-I is HERE and it is HERE to STAY73% of the world’s airports are GBAS Cat-I (IATA study)GBAS Cat-I offers more than ILSLegacy aircraft will be around for a long time and SOME ILS will remain but not as many
19 No single augmentation system provides a global answer – Final Message:No single augmentation systemprovides a global answer –There is a synergy between, and a needfor, all four ICAO augmentation systems
