Abstract : This study assessed the availability and applicability of error budget data for avionics certification requirements. The investigation includes a review of data for both station oriented (VOR/DME-RNAV) navigation systems and wide area (Loran-C, Omega and GPS) navigation systems. The primary thrust of the analysis was to determine the operational capabilities of the various navigation systems currently being certified. A secondary objective was to examine the viability of current certification procedures, techniques and accuracy criteria to any advanced navigation system. To accomplish these objectives, a detailed assessment of error budget data, error combination techniques and functional performance standards was performed.
