POI-0030-AUO — Enhanced Positioning for Airport Surface Navigation

Use of hybridized navigation position output computed by blending information from multiple on-board sensors and satellite systems to provide other aircraft systems (autopilot, ADS-B, pilot display) with position having better accuracy, availability, continuity and integrity on airport surface. Operational benefit is the possible uninterrupted surface operations in low visibility conditions and potentially leading to fully autonomous taxi. Other benefit is increased surface traffic management by more accurate information provided by aircraft to control center through ADS-B.

Low visibility conditions are causing significant delays and have negative impact on airport capacity. More accurate position information will enable operations independent on the visibility conditions and will provide more predictability in surface movement operations.
