Chapter 10, Aviation Applications

By Jason Rife and Sam Pullen

Aviation users represent a small fraction of the overall market for GNSS devices, but their demanding applications continue to advance the state of the art of satellite navigation technology. Chapter 10 focuses on augmentation systems as the corner- stone for aviation applications of GNSS. The first half of this chapter discusses the basic classes of augmentation systems and their applications. The second half describes quantitative techniques used to analyze augmentation system performance.
