Local Area Augmentation System (LAAS)

in Navigation Systems

LAAS is a ground-based augmentation system which uses a GPS reference facility located on or in the vicinity of the airport being serviced. This facility has a reference receiver that measures GPS satellite pseudo-range and timing and retransmits the signal. Aircraft landing at LAAS-equipped airports are able to conduct approaches to Category I level and above for properly equipped aircraft. [Figures 7-32 and 7-33]
