Arrow Modern Navigation

Due to increased traffic in specific areas, airspace is becoming saturated. This necessitates a reduction in aircraft separation while maintaining at least, the equivalent level of safety. Recent navigation systems offer the required navigation performance to achieve this objective, in conjunction with increased routing flexibility. Aircraft separation reduction with required level of safety requires the aircraft manufacturer, airspace administrators and Operators to demonstrate compliance with new standards referred to as:

- Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM), and

- Required Navigation Performance (RNP).

Another modern navigation trend involves the development of instrument procedures that are not based on conventional radio navaids. This type of navigation is called Area Navigation or RNAV. It can be used enroute, in association with the RNP concept, but also for terminal area navigation and instrument approach procedures.

This brochure is designed to provide recommendations which satisfy RNP and RVSM, and RNAV operational and certification requirements, in order for airlines to obtain operational approval from their national operational authorities.
