Abstract : The program development plan provides the research and development necessary to support the evaluation of the concepts and provide answers to critical issues affecting the implementation of area navigation (RNAV) as described in the report of the Joint FAA/Industry Area Navigation Task Force, 'Application of Area Navigation in the National Airspace System.' The program objectives, background, interfaces, technical approach, resource requirements and schedules are detailed in the plan. The program is responsive to the R and D requested efforts outlined in the Task Force Report. The work efforts are divided into five interdependent product activities: RNAV Payoff Analysis, RNAV Terminal Design, RNAV En Route Design, RNAV Avionics and Supporting Studies. (Author)
