Synthetic Vision Guidance System (SVGS) for approach operation on LPV or GLS CAT I
- SJU reference # PJ.02-W2-17.4c /Release 10
- Status In the pipeline
This Solution was formerly part of PJ.03a-04-W1
Medium and small airfields have limited resources to invest in advanced ground infrastructure to support all weather operations. Emerging vision-based technologies offer an alternative, which is located on board the aircraft, uses existing infrastructure and published instrument approach procedures (IAP) and can be used by all aircraft types.
The solution sees the extension of synthetic vision guidance system (SVGS) capabilities, which have already been validated to support SA-CAT1 precision approach operations down to 150 feet minima, to its use for approaches to 200 feet minima (i.e LPV200 or GLS CAT1)
The solution concentrates on the design of the SVGS configuration used for guidance to ensure that landing or go-around operations are feasible.
The solution includes the definition of high-level navigation requirements supporting such operations, as well as a definition of a GNSS configuration including additional airborne monitors on SBAS CAT1 or GLS GAST-C signals.
Benefits are expected with respect to resilience to adverse weather.
