[Avionics Today March 4, 2014] The U.K. Department for International Development will deploy Honeywell's SmartPath Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) at St. Helena's airport, scheduled to open in 2016.
SmartPath is the only FAA-certified GBAS system, which augments aircraft GPS signals to make them suitable for approach and landing.
“By installing Honeywell’s SmartPath GBAS at St. Helena’s airport, we are taking the opportunity to use one of the industry’s most advanced technologies to help beat the challenge of delays and improve landing assurance,” said Janet Lawrence, director of St Helena’s Airport Project. 

“SmartPath will deliver a better passenger experience, improve flight operations, lower noise at ground level and ultimately help to transform everyday access to St. Helena,” said Lawrence.
