Northrop Demos Avionics System for Defense Dept Aircraft

northrop-Grumman_BLUENorthrop Grumman has demonstrated a new avionics technology intended to help the Defense Department to meet aircraft requirements set by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Northrop designed the Communications, Navigation, Surveillance and Air Traffic Management system for DoD to incorporate FAA’s standards into the military’s tactical and civil airspace operations, Northrop Grumman said Monday.

CNS/ATM technology is also built to help the U.S. Air Force fulfill the requirements of the C-130 Avionics Modernization Program.

During a test flight in August, the company combined CNS/ATM with a situational awareness system with the goal of gaining a full view of tactical operations.

The CNS/ATM system works to leverage the ACSS-built traffic management computer and ACSS’ C-12 surrogate airframe was also used for the test.

Northrop built the CNS/ATM technology in order to help update Mode S-capable transponders, 8.33-KHz VHF radio channel spacing, avionics for navigation, reduced vertical separation minimums and Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast Out.
