FAA VIEW OF SST NAVIGATION SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Alexander B. Winnick

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Progress in the FAA's plans for an automated ATC environment in the continental U.S. is reviewed. In addition, system improvements expected to result from the SPANAT plan are outlined. With regard to the SST airborne configuration, it is indicated that inertial systems will provide the major source of navigation information. Preferred ground based aids and methods of use for updating are discussed. Although some development efforts are necessary, it is not believed that the navigation area will present overwhelming problems, or be the cause of delays in the SST program.
