3Performance 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.
4Required 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.

12Honeywell GBAS SmartPath System Definable Touchdown Point GLS CapabilitiesDefinable Touchdown PointHoneywell GBAS SmartPath SystemDefinable Touchdown PointAn 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 PointGLS Programmable Touchdown PointThis allows an airport to perform routine maintenance on an runway without removing the approach system.GLS Programmable Touchdown PointILS Touchdown PointHUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION
13Variable Geometric Path GLS CapabilitiesVariable Geometric PathHoneywell GBAS SmartPath SystemGLS Capabilities: Definable Glide Path AngleAn 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

29Performance-based Navigation Future LandscapePerformance-based NavigationIn 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.HUGHES/HONEYWELL PROPRIETARY INFORMATION
