Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) has been selected by Qantas to equip four Australian airExpress B737a with dual GPS equipment, including CMC’s CMA-5024 IntegriFlight GPS landing system sensor. Qantas is performing the installation.
The CMC landing system sensors will provide an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) capability through the company’s Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) GPS sensors. The CMA-5024 GPS landing system sensor provides positioning data with the highest levels of integrity and availability.
The CMA-5024 has been certified by FAA and Transport Canada to TSO-C145c Beta-3, and TSO-146c Delta-4. The latter category covers the provision of precision approach guidance signals to the aircraft’s autopilot and instrument displays to execute a Localizer Precision with Vertical (LPV) approach. In addition, any aircraft equipped with the CMA-5024 is inherently ready to support future ADS-B operational regulations in both remote and high-density traffic areas.
