Esterline CMC Electronics has been selected to equip four Australian airExpress Boeing 737s with CMA-5024 IntegriFlight GPS landing system sensors. Qantas’s engineering department is performing the installation for the cargo airline.
The GPS sensors, which are certified by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and Transport Canada to TSO-C145c Beta-3 and TSO-146c Delta-4, the most stringent categories for aviation GPS receivers, will provide automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) capability. Additionally, the CMA-5024 can relay precision approach guidance signals to the aircraft’s autopilot and instrument displays to execute a localizer precision with vertical guidance (LPV) approach.
“We are extremely pleased to supply the highest level of navigation performance to the Australian airExpress postal service fleet with our latest generation aviation GPS system,” said Esterline CMC Electronics president Greg Yeldon. “This selection reconfirms our position as the global technology leader for high-integrity aviation GPS technology and products.”
