Washington View: Raising the Bar
RTCA is working to develop new standards to tackle GNSS growth and challenges. Here’s an update on the special committee’s progress, provided during a recent webinar. As the number of global navigation and satellite systems continues to increase, so too does the need for universal standards to ensure resilient, cybersecure and reliable navigation equipment.A special committee (SC) of the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) has been working on developing an updated suite of dual-frequency, multi-constellation (DFMC) GNSS standards for avionics equipment with the European Organization for Civil Aviation Equipment (EUROCAE) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Here, based on a recent RTCA webinar, “From GPS to GNSS,” we provide an update on its slow but steady progress.
