High Integrity Airborne Navigation with the Ground Based Regional Augmentation System

Greer, Duncan G., Bruggemann, Troy S., Walker, Rodney A., & Feng, Yanming (2005) High Integrity Airborne Navigation with the Ground Based Regional Augmentation System. In Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation - The Future of UAVs - Challenges and Applications in the Asia Pacific Region, 30th November - 1st December 2005, Brisbane.


This research is aimed at developing a low-cost high-integrity airborne navigation system for General Aviation (GA) aircraft, utilising the Australian Ground Based Regional Augmentation System (GRAS) (See figure at right). This will mean safer, more reliable, air navigation using the Global Positioning System (GPS) and GRAS.

Specifically, the project goals are:

Development of new strategies to aid in the GPS integrity monitoring process by bridging outages in the GRAS VHF network, using low-cost MEMS technology inertial sensors, air data sensors and GPS Doppler velocity vector processing; Implementation of a navigation sensor architecture onto a prototype system for field-testing; Evaluation of integrity performance of the prototype system with flight tests through GRAS outage areas;

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
