CMC Electronics is displaying its latest aviation GPS receiver here at the show, incorporating wide-area augmentation system (WAAS) technology. The IntegriFlight CMA-5024 aviation GPS receiver on view at Booth No. 145 provides space-based augmentation system (SBAS) and GPS primary means navigation as well as GPS approach capability. It is configured for both retrofit and OEM installations.  

The IntegriFlight CMA-5024 is a combined TSO-C145 Beta-3 and TSO-C146 Delta-4 certified WAAS receiver with numerous interfaces to support legacy (standard Arinc-743A interface) and high-performance operations for RNPS area navigation (RNP-Rnav)-capable flight management systems. The CMA-5024 is a self-contained GPS approach system and hosts a WAAS approach database. GPS approach selection can be made from a compatible FMS or a dedicated control head. The CMA-5024 provides ILS lookalike localizer and glideslope guidance signals as well as linear deviations, DME lookalike distance-to-go, and supports both digital and analog avionics, autopilots and flight directors. The CMA-5024 is also upgradeable to local area augmentation system (LAAS) capability when it becomes available.

The CMC Electronics CMA-5024 GPS receiver is the result of a collaborative effort with Calgary, Canada-based NovAtel Inc. for state-of-the-art narrow correlator  tracking technology.
