Melbourne gains GBAS

23 June 2017

Airservices Australia has put into operation a SmartPath Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS) from Honeywell at Melbourne Airport.

This is the second installation of its type in Australia after SmartPath was first deployed at Sydney in 2014.

GBAS uses satellite technology to enable precision approaches and landings in low-visibility conditions. It delivers a precise landing path by transmitting GPS data directly to the flight management system on an aircraft.

"GBAS can provide a more resilient system for all runway approaches at Melbourne Airport, providing airlines and air travellers an enhanced level of service particularly when the airport is experiencing poor weather conditions," explained Melbourne Airport chief of aviation Simon Gandy.
