GBAS Adoption in the U.S. in 2021


As passenger levels continue to grow, air traffic management systems are under increasing strain which places the aviation industry at a technology crossroads. Today, most airports rely on the traditional instrument landing system (ILS) to determine whether an aircraft is off-center or approaching the runway too high or too low. Since the 1960s, this has been the standard for approach and landing guidance at commercial airports.

Making the move to digital navigation data to manage airspace, instead of traditional antenna signals, is a necessary next step for the industry. It will lead to greater flexibility, increased airport capacity and reduced weather-related delays.

We believe it’s time to modernize our infrastructure and upgrade our airports with ground based augmentation systems (GBAS), a more modern approach that allows airports to achieve future scalability.
