A Requirements Based Approach to Future Aeronautical Navigation Systems Based on Global Navigation Satellite Systems
The increasing use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems-GNSS in future Aeronautical Navigation Systems-ANS is a current trend in the aeronautical operation and regulation communities. This trend implies the adoption of elements and interactions of a degree of complexity that is still being discussed around the world. Faced with that, we believe that a requirements based approach is an effective tool to deal with such highly complex and integrated systems. In this work we discuss a requirements based approach to future Aeronautical Navigation Systems based on Global Navigation Satellite Systems. To do that, we first briefly present the concept of Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management - CNS/ATM, and the current and potential benefits of the adoption of its paradigms.
