Introduction to Performance Based Navigation and Required Navigation Performance, PBN, RNP
Albert Helfrick, Embry-Riddle

The course introduces the implications of increased air traffic and the need for greater efficiency and safety for the future Nextgen environment. The course will investigate the move away from airways and introduction of area navigation, RNAV and the need for new paradigms in assessing system performance. The navigation sensors and methods of path definition, including data basses will be discussed. Closing the loop and methods monitoring performance will be covered.
