GNSS Augmentation

February 27, 2009 - 11:12am

Airbus plans to install satellite-based augmentation systems (SBAS) in its A350XWB to support GPS Cat 1-equivalent 200-foot LPV approaches. SBAS includes the FAA’s WAAS; Europe’s Egnos (2010); India’s Gagan (2011); and Japan’s MSAS (2010/11). The FAA has already published 1,445 WAAS LPV approaches (exceeding the number of ILS approaches) and plans to have 6,000 available by 2018.
