Evaluating the Application of PPP Techniques to ARAIM Using Flight Data

Abstract: Traditional ARAIM solution separation techniques assume measurement errors are uncorrelated from one epoch to the next. They bound errors with relatively large sigmas to compute provably-safe protection levels. PPP-based techniques assume measurement errors have a degree of time correlation. These approaches leverage filtering and estimation to calibrate errors and reduce measurement uncertainty over time. This paper uses flight data to assess the ability of PPP-based solution separation techniques to provide integrity for ARAIM users during flight. It compares time-filtered protection levels to those computed using traditional “snapshot” approach. It is shown that PPP with integrity is capable of producing significantly smaller protection levels that also show improved robustness to aircraft dynamics.
