Microwave Landing And Collision Avoidance Systems

  1. 1. Microwave landing and collision avoidance systems<br /><ul><li>LAAS – Local Augmentation System
  2. 2. Have to be lined up with runway to catch the signal
  3. 3. WAAS – Wide Area Augmentation System
  4. 4. Utilizes GPS system
  5. 5. ILS – Instrument Landing System
  6. 6. TLS – Transponder Landing System
  7. 7. GPS – Global Positioning System
  8. 8. ADF – Automatic Direction Finder
  9. 9. Not very accurate. Small airports may use these, cuz they’re cheap
  10. 10. VOR – Very High Frequency Omni Directional Range
  11. 11. DME – Distance Measuring System</li></ul>Pilots Situational Awareness<br /><ul><li>GPWS – Ground Proximity Warning System “Radar Altimeter”
  12. 12. TAWS – Terrain Awareness Warning System
  13. 13. Digital terrain map/GPS
  14. 14. OCAS – Obstacle Collision Avoidance System
  15. 15. Onboard radar of the aircraft
  16. 16. Synthetic Vision
  17. 17. Computer generation of outside environment
  18. 18. PCAS – Portable Collision Avoidance System
  19. 19. Listens passively to other transponders interrogations
