                                                    Navigation System Panel (NSP)
                                                    Report of the Meeting of the CAT II/III
                                                    Subgroup (CSG)
                                                    Montreal, Canada
                                                    Mar 31st -Apr 3rd 2008

1.0     General
The CAT II/III Subgroup met on Mar 31st through Apr 3rd, 2008 in conjunction with the
NSP Working Group 1 Meeting held during that week. The Agenda for the meeting is
given in Attachment A. The agenda was reviewed, amended and accepted by the group
at the beginning of the meeting. A list of working papers and information papers
considered by the group is given in Attachment B.

The CSG held 4 teleconferences since the last meeting in Montreal (Oct 2007) to advance
the work on requirements for GBAS to support CAT II/III operations. In addition, the
CSG SARPs drafting group continued to work by correspondence to development the
draft of proposed SARPs amendments for GBAS to support CAT II/III.

At this meeting, the CSG continued to discuss the development of requirements for
GBAS as agreed at the meeting in Brussels (May 2006). Work was also done on several
issues related to the maintenance of GBAS and GRAS SARPs.

2.0    Review status of GBAS Development
Reports on GBAS Status in Various State
This meeting began with a series of short status briefings and oral reports from all the
states and organizations represented concerning plans and work specific to GBAS

FAA GBAS Status Update (IP 21)
The FAA is continuing to pursue research and development of GBAS technology and is
supporting applicant request(s) for GBAS system design approval within the National
Airspace (NAS). In 2008, the FAA and Honeywell plan to complete the system design
approval (SDA) for the SLS-4000, a Category-I GBAS. Initiation of facility and service
approvals are anticipated to follow completion of SDA for an updated GBAS installation
in Memphis, TN USA. Coordination continues with the international community to
support world wide development and implementation of GBAS technology. The
program office continues to provide support for requirements development to support
Category-III service. Evaluation is ongoing of the GAST-D proposal, and the ability of
single frequency GBAS technology to support it.

No one was available to give a status report on Eurocontrol GBAS activities.

GBAS status in Germany
On September 5th, 2007 the first GBAS approach in Europe with a commercial airliner
(TUIfly Boeing B737-800) was done at Bremen international airport, Germany under
visual meteorological conditions. With the acceptance of the EC declaration of
verification by the German national supervisory authority on February 5th, 2008 the
airliner can use GBAS service down to NPA minima with the necessity to monitor the
approach e.g. by ILS.
In preparation of this restricted operational use a prototype GBAS ground subsystem in
Bremen had to be qualified through GBAS ground and flight testing. The first testing
campaign was done in May 2007 and was repeated in February 2008 under different
meteorological conditions. Some of the lessons learned are discussed in WP20 of this

Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) still has no firm plans for GBAS operation and
implementation. Electronic Navigation Research Institute (ENRI) continues to develop a
GBAS Test Bed, its architecture and monitoring algorithms. ENRI has recently been
working on the development and evaluation of GBAS using SBAS ranging sources to
improve the availability of service. This activity has uncovered an issue about the SBAS
ephemeris change timing between the airborne receiver and the ground reference
receiver. This issue only affects GBAS receivers using SBAS ranging signal, but does
not affect SBAS receivers using SBAS ranging signals. (Details regarding this issue were
provided in a paper at this meeting.) ENRI also has a plan to do a flight test to check for
interoperability between their GBAS ground system and an airborne MMR receiver.


Australia is continuing GBAS development programs with the GBAS at Sydney having
completed 800 approaches by aircraft in revenue flight.

Airservices Australia and Honeywell sponsored a demonstration flight from the ATC
Global Conference in Amsterdam to Bremen, Germany for senior industry executives.
The flight on a Tuifly 737-800 conducted an approach guided by GBAS provisioned by
DFS Germany. The flight was successful in highlighting the upcoming commercial
release of Cat I GBAS.

Airport Authorities of India (AAI) reported that they have plans to implement GBAS
systems at two airports, one at Delhi airport and a second at Mumbai airport. In March
2008, AAI has placed the order to M/s Thales on Supply, Installation, Testing and
Commissioning (SITC) basis. The current implementation plan of the GBAS is
scheduled to be made operational by December 2009.

A representative from Departamento de Controle de Espaço Aéreo, (DECEA) reported on
the status of GBAS development in Brazil. Brazil continues to operate a GBAS test
prototype. A Hawker 800 has been outfitted with a GNLU 930 MMR and tests have
been conducted on both straight in and curved approaches.

The Brazilian GNSS program has been focused on characterization of the ionosphere
with the goal of developing an ionospheric anomaly threat model applicable to a GBAS
implementation in Brazil. At a previous meeting, the CSG had been briefed regarding a
program where DECEA had an airplane standing by to fly tests when an ionospheric
anomaly was detected using an all-sky imager which can detect atmospheric electron
densities. (This event detection will accomplished by the Research Group on Solar
Physics from UNIVAP (Universidade do Vale do Paraiba), an university located in Sao
Jose dos Campos (Sao Paulo)). As reported in Delhi, the test has not been conducted
because no significant events have happened. It is currently the low point of the solar
cycle. In addition to that program, DECEA is contracting with a local university to
analyze the WAAS test bed data collected between 2003 and now. The analysis of that
data is expected to take on the order of 14 months. The result will be validation of an
ionospheric threat model that is valid for Brazil.

The current goal is for Brazil to have a certified ground station by 2010.

Russian Federation
Following successful compatibility tests carried out in collaboration with
EUROCONTROL and DFS in 2006-2007, further work on the development and
introduction of GBAS is underway. Tests of the first GBAS prototype continue at the
local airfield near Moscow, and a pre-production GBAS station conforming to ICAO
SARPs for GBAS is undergoing operational trials at the Tjumen airport. Subject to the
results of operational trials and user equipage additional stations are expected to be
deployed to support helicopter and corporate aircraft operations in that oil reach Siberian
region. Testing of user equipment is also underway.

GBAS Status in the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom has no current plans to implement GBAS, either as trial or
permanent installations.

GBAS Status in France
There is no change in the status of GBAS in France. A non-certified GBAS ground
station is maintained in Toulouse to support Airbus certification activities and to gain
experience with the system. Some work may be done with the ground station to support
validation of the standards. However, the ground station in Toulouse will be maintained
in a configuration that is compliant with the current CAT I SARPs.

GBAS Status with respect to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)
EASA is close to finalizing approval of GLS with autoland on the A380 in Category I or
better weather conditions. First delivery will be on Qantas, later this year.

There is currently no plan to implement GBAS in Thailand.

3.0     Status of Requirements Developments in Other Groups
Dean Rudy briefed RTCA SC159 WG-4 status. The last meeting was held Jan 22-24,

After a review of the status of other relevant groups, the working group reviewed several
issues related to maintenance of the existing documents (LAAS MOPS and ICD).
Briefly, these topics included: applicability of airborne multipath model to helicopters, a
proposed change to the requirement that Dmax must be used for the Approach Service,
test procedure harmonization Issues with DO-229D (WAAS MOPS), and new velocity
requirements to support ADS B.

WG4 then addressed CAT III updates to those documents. At the previous meeting and at
subsequent teleconferences, the WG had conducted a page-by-page walk though of the
proposed updates to DO-253 and DO-246. The result of this review was a list of issues
and actions. At this meeting, the status of several of the items on the actions list was
reported, resulting in discussions that matured the draft, and in some cases, additions to
the action list.

Since the Jan meeting, WG4 has held four teleconferences, using the actions list as a
framework for the discussion.

The next meeting for WG4 is Apr 15-17. The work plan will be reviewed then; telecons
in May – August are likely, but TBD.

The goal is still for WG4 to generate finished drafts of CAT II and III updates to DO-253
and DO-246 for final review and comment approximately 30+ days prior to the SC-159
Plenary Meeting following April (approximately September).

Papers from the last meeting are available on the web site

EUROCAE WG28 has met at the end of January 2008 and has confirmed new terms of
reference. The past subgroup structure is abandoned and the group will meet in plenary
session from now on. Its primary tasks are now:
       completion of ED-88A (MMR MOPS), currently foreseen for May 2008
       Update of ED-114 (GBAS ground MOPS), planned for the 2008-2009 period,
        notably to keep it current with ICAO SARPS and to incorporate the testing
        experience acquired
       Identification of relevant documents for the GBAS CS mandate
       Aid harmonization of European positions for ICAO and RTCA on GBAS,
        particularly on Cat II/III developments.

This is to be achieved in co-ordination with WG62, RTCA SC 159 and the ICAO NS
Panel, proposing inputs to the ICAO NS Panel as appropriate.

Next meeting is 6-7 May 2008 at EUROCAE, Paris.

4.0 Development of Standards for GBAS to Support Category II/III
4.1 Agenda Item 3.a – Review of Proposed Requirements Development

WP-4 Common Open Questions on the proposed GPS/L1 GBAS CAT III SARPS and
the Ranging Source Monitoring Requirements
This paper raises questions on the integrity-related changes made in the proposal for
SARPS for GBAS to support CATIII operations. More particularly it questions the
Ranging Source Monitoring Requirement specified in Appendix B, § This
requirement is in the form of a constraint region for the acceptable probabilities of missed
detection of a set of defined ranging source failures (Pmd vs |Er| requirement).
CSG members were invited to provide answers to the questions raised in this WP in order
to support validation of the proposed SARPS and increase the general understanding of
the integrity related changes in the proposal for SARPS for GBAS CATIII. CSG
members were invited by the paper to:

   1. Note the importance of getting a better understanding of the derivation of the
      Ranging Source Monitoring requirement specified in Appendix B, § in
      the form of a constraint region for the acceptable probabilities of missed detection
      of a set of defined ranging source failures.

   2.   Provide answers to the questions raised in this WP in order to support the SARPS
        validation and to increase general understanding of the proposal for SARPs for
        GPS/L1 GBAS CATII and in particular of the integrity related changes.

   3.   Note that guidance material should include explanation of the issues raised in this

The group discussed the recommendations and agreed that a clear understanding of the
Ranging Source Monitoring Requirements in Appendix B is essential for
validation of the proposed SARPS amendment. It was noted that actions already exist in
the matrix to provide additional explanatory information including guidance material.
Progress on those actions has been slow due to resource being devoted to the current
CAT I certification program.

The group discussed the need for a concise paper describing the proposed requirements
and how they work together in conjunction with air worthiness certifications to provide
safe operations should be developed. Much of this material has been presented in
previous papers, but the story is scattered across too many references and those
references include information which may no longer be pertinent (or even correct). Also,
there are clearly gaps that have not been addressed in any of the papers presented so far.

The group agreed that additional guidance material was needed, and in fact noted that
actions have been assigned to develop that guidance material. However, it was also
agreed that guidance material did not need to address every single issue raised in WP 4 as
some historical/background information may not necessarily be helpful to states as they
apply SARPS.

After discussion, it was agreed that
1) the open questions should be tracked in a matrix used to reference documentation that
give the answers.
2) a concise paper describing the proposed requirements and how they work together in
conjunction with air worthiness certifications to provide safe operations should be
developed. An action was given to Jason Burns to lead an ad-hoc activity to produce that
paper (action 84).

IP 2 – Common Questions concerning GPS/L1 CAT III GBAS
This paper is an update of WP 14 from the Oct07 meeting. This paper has as objective to
provide some background to the current GPS/L1 CAT III GBAS proposal. The first draft
of this paper was reviewed meeting July 2007 (Seattle). The paper captures some of the
main concepts and rationale behind the current proposal. The paper also collects some
unresolved issues and notes areas where additional work is needed. The paper is
intended to be like a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document for the proposal. It is
a working draft that is expected to evolve as the proposal matures. Significant additions
have been made to the paper since the last draft. The work to extend this paper is the
genesis of many of the new questions raised in WP 4 described above. The group
reaffirmed that this “FAQ” paper should continue to be updated.

WP 3- GPS/L1 CAT III GBAS effect on multi-constellation CAT II/III GBAS SARPS
This paper notes that changes, being made in the CAT I GBAS SARPS for a GPS/L1
CAT III GBAS, which uses only GPS L1 (and perhaps GLONASS) signals, will have
implications and possibly limited flexibility for a future CAT II/III GBAS using multiple
signals and constellations.

Recommendations are made for the CSG to consider various aspects of the standards to
ensure that a multi-frequency, multi-constellation CAT II/III GBAS will be easier to
introduce into SARPS in future. These aspects are notably:
              Datalink capacity,
              SARPs structure,
              Terminology and
              Requirements methodology.

WP 3 recommends:

   1. That the members already consider the impact of the VDB capacity when defining
      the GAST D SARPS, based on the need to introduce additional messages and data
      for a multi-constellation CAT II/III GBAS.

   2. That the members consider the possible impact of introducing a multi-
      constellation CATII/III GBAS on the GBAS SARPS structure.

   3. That members consider the implications of the extension of the GST, GAST
      terminology and their lower level classes to a multi-constellation CAT II/III
      GBAS. Some of the implications may already be visible when considering
      GLONASS in the GAST C SARPS.

   4. That members consider the implications of extending the performance
      requirements methodology to multi-constellation CAT II/III GBAS systems.

IP 3 and IP 4 were provided in support of WP 3. However, these IP’s were not presented
or discussed in details. The contents of IP 3 and IP 4 are summarized in WP 3 in support
of the points made by that paper.

The group agreed that some consideration of the extensibility of the current proposal to
support multiple constellation, multiple frequency systems in the future should be done in
support of validation. To this end it was agreed that the recommendations should be
addressed by the development of a working paper to be presented in support of
validation. Further it was agreed that it would be sufficient for validation if an
architecture using 2 core constellations and two frequencies (i.e. L1 and L5/E5) could be
described and then shown to feasibly be accommodated on a single frequency using the
current datalink standard. Andreas Lipp was given the action to lead the effort to develop
this paper (see action 85).

WP 17 - Proposed Changes to GBAS SARPs to Introduce GAST D
This paper presents the latest draft SARPS change proposal to introduce a new service
level intended to support CAT III operations. A drafting group was charged by CSG with
development of a proposed set of SARPs changes that implement the multiple service
types under consideration including the new service type intended to support CAT II/III.
A draft was developed and presented to the CSG in July of 2007. The drafting group
continued to edit this draft over a series of teleconferences. The draft was reviewed
during the last meeting and again over another series of teleconferences which were open
to the entire CSG membership. The attachments to this paper contains the latest draft to
support review and maturation of the SARPs changes during this meeting.
The CSG conducted a paragraph by paragraph review of the Draft SARPS proposal
during the meeting. Chapters 2 & 3 and most of Appendix B were covered. (Guidance
Material has yet to be reviewed by the collective group. During the review a number of
deficiencies in the current draft were identified and some actions were assigned to
address these deficiencies.

5.0       SARPs Maintenance Issues
WP 15 - Proposed Maintenance Changes to GBAS SARPs
This paper summarizes the list of “maintenance” changes to the CAT I GBAS SARPS that the
CSG has accumulated to date. At the last meeting in Montreal (Oct 07), the group agreed that
maintenance changes not directly related to introduction of CAT II/III would be collected in a
separate document along with references to validation material. Dean Rudy was charged with
collecting the known maintenance changes and producing a document.
The group reviewed the document and two issues were noted:
         A typographical error in table B-78 had been identified earlier and needs to be added to
          this list of changes
         The level of validation material needed to support the Guidance Material changes for the
          VHF datalink to provide longer distance coverage was questioned. An action was
          assigned to an ad-hoc committee led by Dean Rudy to investigate whether the validation
          of this change was sufficient. (See action 86)

WP 22 - GBAS Maximum Use Distance (Dmax)
This paper presents the operational drawbacks imposed by the current definition of the
Maximum Use Distance (Dmax) in the SARPS and recommends a change to the
requirement and definition. This issue was introduced at the last meeting and an action
was assigned (action 70) to address this issue. In response the WP reiterates the rationale
for a change to the applicability of Dmax such that only the positioning service is limited
by Dmax. SARPs and Guidance Material changes were proposed in the paper and were
reviewed by the group.

The group agreed to accept the proposal contingent on validation. The required steps for
validation are:
    1) Inspection – Action to Dean Rudy to review the proposed change carefully and
        verify by inspection that no use of Dmax was overlooked or that the proposed
        changes do not introduced unintended consequences (action 87)
    2) Assessment of any Operational impacts. – International GBAS Working Group
        has an activity to address the operational issues associated with Dmax. Andreas
        Lipp will make them aware of this proposed requirements change and bring
        feedback from that group (action 88)
WP 16 - GBAS SARPs Requirements for Excessive RFI
This paper discusses the need for SARPs requirements related to the effects of excessive
Radio Frequency Interference on the Category III GBAS ground subsystem. Several
options are discussed and proposed SARPs changes for each option were presented.
There was some confusion as to whether the Signal in Space integrity level was intended
to cover the case of RFI above the mask. It was noted that both the EUROCAE and the
FAA apparently understood that it does since both organizations introduced derived
ground station requirements associated with integrity performance when operating with
RFI above the mask.

The paper invited the group to:
   a) note the options identified in the paper and provide feedback;
   b) recommend preferred options for further development; and
   c) consider the need for a similar requirement for Category I systems.

During the discussion that ensued, a wide variety of views existed within the group.
Some believed that the SARPs was lacking a requirement with a definitive shall
associated with some ground station requirement on performance in the presence of RFI
above the mask. These people supported the introduction of a requirement for the ground
subsystem similar to the requirement that exists for the airborne system, i.e. “the ground
subsystem shall not produce HMI when operating in the presence of interference above
the mask”. Others believed that the integrity requirement was the fundamental
requirement and that ground subsystem requirements would have to be derived based on
system architecture, receiver technology used and the RF environment and spectrum
protection practices of the state where the GBAS is to be deployed. These people
preferred the option of addressing the issue with additional guidance material explaining
how states could insure the overall integrity requirement is met given the possibility of

After some discussion, the group agreed to give the issue back to ad-hoc with a stated
preference for options 2 and/or 4/5. The group noted that any new proposed requirement
would need to consider potential impacts to GRAS and the CAT I SARPS.

WP 11 – Operating Frequencies for GBAS
This paper was discussed in a Joint session with SSG.
This working paper suggests that the ITU Radio Regulations have been modified in a
way such that it may be an appropriate time to consider extending the operating
frequency range of GBAS to include 118.0 – 137 MHz. The Working Paper highlights
some of the reasons why this is possible and was intended to stimulate discussion on
whether the extension adds benefit to GBAS operations. The NSP was invited by the
Working Paper to:
   i)   Consider whether the extension of the frequency band used for GBAS would add benefit
        to the introduction of GBAS;
   ii) If necessary add this work to the work programme of the NSP.
The group discussed the proposal and many diverse opinions as the feasibility of such a
suggestion were offered. In general the enthusiasm for the proposal was low. Yet, given
the congestion issues in the VHF navigation band, it could not be argued that the proposal
should not be considered further. Consequently the UK was invited to bring another
paper (action 89) to a future NSP meeting which:
     Gives a detailed example of how a GBAS allocation could be made it the VHF
       com band (118-137 MHz) without giving or receiving harmful interference.
     Estimates the value of the proposition in terms of the amount of spectrum that
       could practically be obtained in this manner and discusses what kind of difference
       this might make on the viability of GBAS, particularly in Europe.

IP 5 – SBAS GEO as GBAS Ranging Source
The use of both GPS satellites and SBAS GEO as ranging sources for GBAS will
improve the Protection Level of GBAS users. Japanese GBAS in Sendai Airport has a
capability of processing both GPS satellites and SBAS satellites as GBAS ranging
sources. In 2007, spike errors were observed at the time of SBAS Type9 Message
update. This information paper provides the study result regarding the cause of this issue
which is originated from the different way of message synchronization between GBAS
ground segment and airborne user. The possibility of potential integrity risk is still under
investigation. Mitigation for this issue had been proposed and implemented in Sendai
GBAS and spikes have been eliminated at present. It will next be investigated as to
whether this issue causes GBAS HMI or not. The mitigation result will be presented at a
future meeting and related SARPs change may be proposed if this issue proves to be the
cause of a GBAS integrity risk.

The paper asserts that it is very important for availability and continuity of GBAS to use
SBAS GEO as ranging source, particularly if the quality of GEO ranging signal could be
equivalent to a GPS ranging signal. However, since the ranging signal quality of current
SBAS GEO is degraded due to the narrow bandwidth of the GEO on-board filter, SBAS
ranging may only be beneficial for SBAS GEO’s of newer generation.

WP 20 - GBAS Ground and Flight Testing Experience
This working paper presents some of the results and provides suggestions for
clarifications and editorial corrections of ICAO Doc 8071 Vol. II chapter 4. The initial
results presented in this paper show a good repeatability of the measurements and support
the Doc 8071 recommendation to limit GBAS flight testing to commissioning and special
events. The paper discusses some of the challenges to implement GBAS flight testing
capability in a flight inspection aircraft.

The NSP members are invited to
         1. note the results provided;
         2. note the good repeatability of the VDB measurements that support the
            recommendation to limit GBAS flight inspection to commissioning and
            special events;
           3. discuss the necessity of a 12 month periodicity for on site measurements
              of the power transmitted in adjacent channels above the fourth that is not
              done for other navigation aids in this frequency band;
           4. clarify the wording of the FAS data points accuracy recommendation;

It was further proposed that the ICAO Secretariat corrects wrong paragraph reference
numbers in the tables II-4-2A, II-4-2B, and II-4-4 in the next release of ICAo Doc 8071
Vol. II.

After some discussion it was agreed that a small group would produce a flimsy that
consolidated and summarized the changes to Doc 8071 proposed in the paper. This
group produced flimsy 3 (“Future ICAO Doc 8071 Vol. II Chapter 4 GBAS updates”)
which was reviewed by the CSG.

The CSG agreed that as experience with GBAS was gained and those experiences should
enable improvements to Doc 8071, Vol. II. The group resolved that proposed changes to
Doc 8071 should be accumulated in a list in much the same manner that GBAS SARPS
Maintenance changes are being accumulated. Winfried Dunkel volunteered to manage
the accumulation of changes for Doc 8071, Vol. II for the CSG.

6.0    Future Work Program
Future Work Plan
The CSG established the work schedule below to progress the development of standards
for GBAS to support CAT II/III. Between now and the next meeting (to be held in
Toulouse), the subgroup will work via email and teleconference. A small drafting group
will continue development of the SARPs change proposal. The members of the drafting
group are: Tim Murphy, Barbara Clark, Andreas Lipp, Pierre Ladoux, and Kim Class.

The group reviewed and updated the actions list and issues matrix provided in
Attachment C.

7.0    Summary and Conclusions
The CSG continues to make progress towards the development of standards for GBAS to
support CAT II/III operations. The goal of initial SARPs development and validation by
the end of 2008 appears infeasible. Progress on the SARPs has been impeded by the fact
that some of the resources needed to complete and validate the standards are still very
engaged in the current CAT I program. The revised goal is a stable draft and technical
validation sufficient to support acceptance by WG 1 by the NSP meeting in 2Q 2009.

A series of teleconferences and one additional meeting (beyond the two normal joint
meetings) are planned for 2008. The group will continue to work via email and
teleconferences between meetings.
