The GBAS implementation course aims to provide an overview of the technology and application of Ground Based Augmentation Systems for GNSS to airport, ATC and airline operations. Basic knowledge of the function of GNSS systems are of benefit to understand the course material.

Day One will cover basic principles, architecture, services and the regulatory context, while the second day is dedicated to the air-ground interface and the ground subsystem functions. The third day is dedicated to installation, airport infrastructure integration, siting, and the roles and responsibilities in operations, while the fourth day covers airborne systems and operations, including ATM and procedure design aspects.

On the last half day, data analysis, evaluation and monitoring, notably with the PEGASUS toolset, are introduced.
As a minimum, all participants must have followed a course on the principles of GNSS.  The NAV-GNSS course offered by IANS is an acceptable preparatory course. 
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
•       Describe how the aviation GNSS augmentations work
•       Explain the architecture, services and European regulatory aspects of the GBAS system
•       Describe GBAS ground and airborne system structure and function
•       Understand the GBAS installation, siting, safeguarding and interfacing requirements
•       Understand the GBAS operational aspects
•       Understand the use of GBAS data evaluation and monitoring tools
