AKKA Technologies Subsidiary Aeroconseil to develop an STC for Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) approaches for installation in ATR a
posted on Mar 2, 2016
Aeroconseil’s Air Transport Services division has finalized an agreement with France’s largest ATR operator for developing an EASA STC for installation of Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance systems (LPV) on board the ATR42 -200 -300 -400 -500 series and ATR72 -200 -500 series.
Esterline CMC Electronics will be in charge of developing and manufacturing the associated avionics equipment, including its CMA-5024 GPS Precision Approach Receiver and CMA-5025 Control Panel. The solution will be stand-alone; the LPV approach will have no impact on existing navigation systems. This space-based satellite landing system function is enabled by the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) which is managed by the European Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GSA) and the European Satellite Services Provider (ESSP).
Thanks to its unique slant on innovation, AKKA Technologies provides valuable technological support while positioning itself as the preferred partner of airlines companies.
