Expects to Begin Deliveries This Year
Esterline Avionics Systems announced the new CMA-6024 Global Positioning System (GPS) precision aircraft approach sensor from CMC Electronics that supports both Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS LP/LPV) and Ground-Based Augmentation Systems (GBAS GLS). As a standard-fit ARINC 743C compliant receiver, it can be integrated into a wide range of new-build or in-service aircraft. The CMA-6024 will be certified to the current and upcoming regulatory requirements including TCCA and FAA TSO requirements, the current RTCA Minimum Operational Performance Specifications, and to Design Assurance Level A (DAL-A).
The CMA-6024 includes a high performance GPS/SBAS/GBAS receiver and a complementary, state-of-the-art, Very High Frequency Data Broadcast (VDB) receiver that has been designed for easy and seamless installation in a challenging retrofit or new-build aircraft environment. As a DAL-A certified receiver, it meets or exceeds the most stringent requirements in support of CAT-III B precision approaches. Furthermore, the CMA-6024 has been certifiably tested and is built to withstand the most demanding RTCA/DO160 environmental aviation requirements. The result is exceptional reliability and a superior mean time between failures, or MTBF. The CMA-6024 delivers SBAS LP/LPV and GBAS GLS spanning all helicopter, regional, business, and air transport aircraft in a wide range of environments.
