THE INTEGRATION OF AIR NAVIGATION SYSTEMS

John Larsen

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: THE EVER INCREASING air traffic volume on high density international routes indicates the need for increased air space capacity. This involves reduction in air traffic separation standards. Consequently, improved navigation accuracy must be achieved. The examination of air carrier over-ocean navigation practices discloses a wide variety of navigation concepts. For position fixing, general limitations of sensor data acquisition may be due to inadequate operator time availability, unfavorable environmental conditions, or by geographical limits of facility coverage. Techniques of sensor data acquisition and processing and the required levels of integration are discussed.
