Testing satellite and ground based augmented navigation systems

Presented by Dean Pfafferot, Paul Denisowski, Dr. Markus Irsigler and Klaus Theissen

Facing the challenges of the next generation augmentation based landing systems, this webinar has been created to provide and understanding of SBAS, GBAS, test challenges as well as provide you with an insight into modern and high performance test methods both for generating GBAS signals as well as analyzing them in the field. This will include Avionic test applications for aircraft on-board, ground station, air traffic control GBASystems as well as air navigation service provision, aircraft MRO, aviation authority certification and avionic system integration.

In this webinar, you will learn how to/ more about:

  • SBAS-GBAS radiofrequency measurements for maintenance applications
  • SBAS-GBAS radiofrequency measurements for development and performance validation
