The ICAO Navigation Systems Panel (NSP) has finalized the update of Doc 8071, Manual on Testing of Radio Navigation Aids, Vol 1 (Testing of Ground-Based Radio Navigation Systems), 4th Edition incl. Amendment 1, October 2002 [1]. The update brings Doc 8071 Vol 1 in line with numerous updates in Annex 10, and removes all material on flight validation, which is contained in ICAO Doc 9906, Quality Assurance Manual for Flight Procedure Design, Volume 5 [2]. The update to the general chapter includes new guidance on inspection periodicity, and brings it in line with current practice. The following chapters were also extensively reviewed. The paper will summarize those changes and associated rationales especially on VOR, DME and ILS. Examples are the recommendation of a new assessment methodology for VOR and updated guidance on ILS displacement sensitivity. The paper also summarizes the ongoing work on the update of Volume 2 on GNSS.
