GE presents customizable, performance-based navigation solutions for air navigation service providers

SEATTLE, 7 March 2012. GE has introduced customizable performance-based navigation (PBN) solutions to aid air navigation service providers (ANSP), including those who have a need for aeronautical information/data, operationally acceptable design support, full-service PBN implementation, or other PBN deployment assistance. GE Aviation debuted its PBN technology during the ATC Global Exhibition and Conference in Amsterdam.

PBN technology enables aircraft to fly precise, defined flight paths without relying on ground-based, radio-navigation signals. Required Navigation Performance (RNP) procedures, an advanced form of PBN technology, can shorten the distance an aircraft has to fly en route, and to reduce fuel burn, exhaust emissions, and noise pollution in communities near airports. RNP’s precision and reliability can help air traffic controllers reduce flight delays and alleviate air traffic congestion.

Many elements are unique to PBN design and implementation (compared to conventional flight path design), and require experts to ensure operational acceptability, seamless airspace integration, etc. GE tools and staff support the full PBN implementation process, from pre-design, through design, to implementation services.

“Deploying beneficial PBN is a complex task and ANSPs may require different levels of support throughout the process,” says Giovanni Spitale, general manager for GE Aviation’s PBN Services. “Implementing beneficial PBN takes the right mix of tools, data, and expertise. By partnering with GE, ANSPs can fill any gaps within their organization to ensure adherence with ICAO’s Resolution A37-11 deadline of PBN procedures to nearly every runway end by 2016.”

GE Aviation’s PBN Services unit is working with aircraft operators and air traffic management providers in China, South and Central America, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Europe.
