Course detail: Advanced Avionics - ONLINE
Advanced Avionics covers systems that will be the mainstay of CNS (communications, navigation and surveillance) in the future. Course material reviews the basic theory of navigation and provides a thorough introduction and survey of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), with emphasis on GPS. Modern surveillance systems based on Mode-S and ADS-B are also covered as are both wired and wireless communications systems. This course includes in-class exercises that involve college-level mathematics.
This course covers some of the same topics as Fundamental Avionics (taught by the same instructor), but in much greater detail. Fundamental Avionics is not a prerequisite for this course. Additional subject matter covered in this course was previously included in Introduction to Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) and Required Navigation Performance (RNP) (also taught by the same instructor), which is no longer offered. Advanced Avionics will provide a good review for those who may have studied these subjects previously.
