So, the improvement not only provides the airplane with a much more accurate position, it also provides an alert to the flight crew should the actual navigation performance exceed the required navigation performance RNP. The controller can also set up a deviation contract, eruocae would automatically send a position report if a certain lateral deviation was exceeded. The deployment of FANS-1 was originally justified by improving route choice and thereby reducing fuel burn.

The INS systems have error introduced by drifting after initial alignment. These trials demonstrated the potential benefits to the airlines and airspace managers. This also introduced the concept of actual navigation performance ANP. The Future Air Navigation System FANS is an avionics system which provides direct data link communication between the pilot and the air traffic controller. The application is known as ADS-C automatic dependent surveillance, contract.

The controller “sees” the airplanes in the control area and uses VHF voice to provide instructions to the flight crews to ensure separation. Because the position of the aircraft is updated frequently and VHF voice contact timely, separation standards the distance by which one aircraft must be separated from another are less. It was followed by the first commercial flight from Sydney to Los Angeles on June Boeing worked with the airlines to develop a standard which would control the interface between FANS-capable airplanes and air traffic service providers.


If market demand pushes airlines to operate at the same time on a given route, this can lead to airspace congestion, which is handled by delaying departures or separating the airplanes by altitude. Previously, flight crews would be notified of the system being used to calculate the position radios, or inertial systems alone.


The HF radio operator can also be saturated with requests for communication. They can select from a set of messages and send communications to the airplane. The FANS concept was developed to improve the safety and efficiency of airplanes operating under procedural control. This involves a transition from inertial navigation to satellite navigation using the GPS satellites.

The current standard for message delivery is under 60 seconds one way. This allows the flight crew to select from a menu of standard ATC communications, send the message, and receive a response.

This involved a transition from voice communications to digital communications. Non-FANS procedural separation uses Inertial Navigation Systems for position, flight crew voice reports of position and time of next waypointand High Frequency radio for communication.

The communications include air traffic control clearances, pilot requests and position reporting. In this system, an air traffic controller can set up a “contract” software arrangement with the airplane’s navigational system, to automatically send a position report on a specified periodic basis — every 5 minutes, for example. Air traffic control’s ability to monitor aircraft was being rapidly outpaced by the growth of flight as a mode of travel.

The voice quality of the connection is often poor, leading to repeated messages.

All other airspace users must be ICAO compliant. These procedures reduce the number of airplanes which can operate in a given airspace. Positive control is used in areas which have radar and so is commonly referred to as Radar control.

This method uses time-based procedures to keep aircraft separated. This is because the air traffic controller can recognize problems and issue corrective directions to multiple airplanes in a timely fashion.

Commercial aircraft operators typically get their long haul fleet connected and have dedicated personnel to monitor and maintain the satellite and ground link while business aircraft and military aircraft operators contact companies like AirSatOne to commission the system for the first time, conduct functionality testing and to provide ongoing support.

Procedural control is used in areas oceanic or eurocar which do not have radar. This makes a huge difference in airspace capacity. The members include airframe manufacturers, avionics suppliers, communication service providers, and air navigation service providers.

Separation standards are what determine the number of airplanes which can occupy a certain volume of airspace. The separation standard is determined by the accuracy of the reported positions, frequency of position reports, and timeliness of communication with respect to intervention. This ed-1200 other application improvements.

Boeing also extended the range of aircraft supported to include the Boeing and Aircraft are operated using two major methods; positive control and procedural control. The development of the FANS-capable aircraft systems proceeded simultaneously with the ATC ground system improvements necessary to make it work.

During these trials, airplanes installed applications in their ACARS units which would automatically report positions. The latter can lead to very inefficient operation due to longer flying times and increased fuel burn.

The purpose of this team is to monitor the performance of the end-to-end system, identify problems, assign problems and assure they are solved. A peer application exists on the ground for the Air Traffic Controller.

HF radio communication involves contacting an HF operator who then transcribes the message and sends it to the appropriate ATC service provider.
