Summary
It is important for safety, capacity, and environmental reasons, that aircraft follow the desiredflight path as accurately as possible, especially in the vicinity of an airport, i.e. the terminalmanoeuvring area (TMA). The ability of an aircraft to maintain its desired path depends onvarious factors of which the accuracy of the navigation system plays a major role. In this study,the lateral deviation from a nominal flight path depending on the positioning sensor in use isinvestigated by using actual radar measurements of the aircraft’s position. A comparison ismade between the performance with GPS as positioning sensor and with DME (DistanceMeasuring Equipment) as positioning sensor on a straight path. Analysis shows a significantdecrease in the track dispersion when GPS is used as a primary sensor (about a factor 1.6)instead of DME. Additionally, the disabling of Selective Availability (SA) of the GPS signaldecreased the track dispersion again with a factor of 1.8.
