In support of Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) modernization efforts such as the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and NextGen program initiatives, our Advanced ILS Antenna arrays make it possible to transition more rapidly to “gate to gate” GPS/GNSS. They accomplish this by more closely matching resiliency and efficiency program objectives than all other existing ILS antennas, which is an advantage particularly in the event of GPS/GNSS service outages. Additionally, our antennas promote growth and development of airports of every size and their surrounding communities by removing significant restrictions on the use of spatial real estate in and around them. In doing so, it opens the door to many previously withheld opportunities and allows developments that can benefit the entire community.
Universally, our Advanced ILS Antennas can increase operational safety and throughput capacity at airports all around the world and can support modernization efforts of all aviation authorities and organizations including those of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and their member states. Simply put…whether used in support or instead of any other landing system technologies, our Advanced ILS Antenna Systems will perform brilliantly by increasing operational safety, efficiency, capacity and financial opportunities while reducing per capita greenhouse gas emissions wherever they are commissioned.
