3 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.

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

7 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).

10 What is a Honeywell SmartPath GBAS?
Honeywell’s SmartPath is the first, and only, FAA-approved CAT-I GBAS It will provide CAT I/II/III precision approach and landing capability Air Traffic Control Status Unit (ATSU) SLS Status Panel installed in Air Traffic Control Tower or other location Laptop computer or hosted on existing workstation Remote Satellite Measurement Unit (RSMU) Differential GPS (DGPS) Control & VHF Data Broadcast (VDB) Cabinet VHF Data Broadcast (VDB) Antenna 4 RSMUs per Installation 48 Channel GPS Receiver GPS Receiver packaged in an environmentally protective enclosure Multi-path Limiting Antenna Requires site survey and placement against siting/installation criteria 19” Rack & Panel Cabinets Differential Correction Processors FAA-certified DO-278 Software Robust Power Distribution & Local Status Dual VHF Transmitter/Receiver Maintenance Data Terminal (MDT) Horizontally polarized antenna Elliptically polarized antenna option HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

12 Honeywell GBAS SmartPath System Definable Touchdown Point
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 Programmable Touchdown Point GLS Programmable Touchdown Point This allows an airport to perform routine maintenance on an runway without removing the approach system. GLS Programmable Touchdown Point ILS Touchdown Point HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

13 Variable Geometric Path
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. HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

14 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

15 CAT III Curved Path Approach

16 Maximized Operational Benefits
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 GLS is precision approach RNAV/GLS fastest/easiest implementation HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

17 Honeywell GBAS SmartPath System – An Integrated Solution
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 HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION

29 Performance-based Navigation
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.
