Farnborough International Airshow, June 30, 2018 -- Esterline Avionics Systems and PMV Engineering are pleased to announce that PMV Engineering has obtained EASA approval for the upgrade of the older generation

GPSSU by CMC’s CMA-5024 GLSSU on the A320 family of aircraft.

As an SBAS GPS receiver, the CMA-5024 is an approved DO-260B ADS-B positioning source that may be paired with any DO-260B transponder. It can be coupled with ADS-B Out STCs from PMV Engineering or others to meet the ADS-B Out requirements mandated worldwide.

The PMV Engineering solution offers the unique advantage of reduced install and downtime for the A320 family of aircraft, since it involves a form, fit and function replacement of the existing GPS unit (Honeywell or Litton) without the need to perform any structural modifications to accommodate new antennas, etc. In addition to achieving compliance to the ADS-B Out mandate, the CMA-5024 also allows the entire aircraft to take advantage of SBAS navigation throughout all phases of flight. LPV approach capability may be added with additional certification effort.

Similar solutions are on-going for B747-400 and B777-200 aircraft.

The CMA-5024 meets the requirements for an Instrument Flight Rules, civil certified Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). The European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS), a component of SBAS, augments GPS to provide an extremely accurate navigation solution that will support all flight operations from en route through Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) CAT-l equivalent approach. The CMA-5024 is compliant with and completely supports EGNOS/SBAS, from departure, en-route navigation, and all EGNOS/SBAS LPV Precision Approaches, and complies with published Communication Navigation Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) navigational mandates.
