    • ENR 1.5 para 1.15
  11. GNSS and PBN standards?
    • PBN: Performance-based navigation is the regulatory framework for implementing area navigation, with an emphasis on GNSS as the enabling technology. 2 types of navigation specifications, RNAV (area navigation), and RNP (required navigation performance).
    • The difference between the two specifications is that on-board performance monitoring and alerting is required for RNP but not for RNAV. RNAV requires independent performance monitoring of an aircraft’s position.
    • RNP has parallel lateral performance requirements and can be supported by a variety of technologies. In Australia, RNP operations require GNSS but can be supplemented by inertial systems.
    • GNSS: Global navigation satellite systems receivers, or GPS are the systems utilising the technology required to navigate per the PBN requirements.
