The currently envisioned plan for Alternative Position, Navigation, and Timing (APNT) relies heavily on Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) for providing RNAV/RNP services. Alternative proposals include the use of L-Band Digital Aeronautical Communications System (LDACS) signals as a means of obtaining ranging measurements, relative to a network of ground stations. We extend the LDACS-based approach to include the Air-to-Air (A2A) Communications capability, which has been specified for future… CONTINUE READING
