Abstract

This paper proposes one possible concept for a dual frequency dual constellation GBAS architecture. It is based on a single frequency L5/E5a mode as primary processing scheme for best standard performance, a switch to an ionosphere free combination in case of ionospheric disturbances and supporting also classical GBAS approach service types (GAST) C and D for single frequency GPS-based CAT I and CAT II/III modes. The concept is supported by a proposal of how to transmit the required corrections in the existing capacity limited VDB broadcast and is backwards compatible to legacy GBAS. A discussion about the benefits and remaining issues of the proposed architecture concludes the paper.
