Course detail: Advanced Avionics

Description
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.

Highlights
  • The art and mathematics of navigation
  • Electronic systems used for navigation
  • The use of space-based navigation
  • Electronically-guided approaches and landing
  • The operation of the surveillance systems needed for safe aircraft separation
  • The need for communications in modern aviation navigation and safety
  • Examples of widely used wired and wireless communications systems
  • Discussion of actual implemented systems and those planned for future use
  • Systems required for PBN and RNP
  • Emphasis on state-of-the-art systems
  • Includes problem solving exercises
