Past Performance

Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) Modification Support

Chickasaw Aerospace  supports the FAA with second level engineering, development, configuration management, acquisition support, and prototyping efforts of the WAAS. This is navigation technology that allows qualifying airports in the NAS to have reduced vertical and horizontal guidance during all phases of flight, regardless of weather conditions and without installing expensive legacy navigation hardware at each runway. The FAA WAAS Program Management Office recognized the Chickasaw Aerospace  WAAS team for their support to the Terrestrial Communications System (TCS) and 3rd Generation (G-III)   Receivers upgrades. The TCS is the ground network made up of 38 Wide area Reference Stations (WRS), three Wide area Master Stations (WMS), and four Ground Uplink Stations (GUS). These systems are located across the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Canada. The upgrade consists of new circuits and routers that double the bandwidth of the network in preparation for increases in data, and new Global Positioning System (GPS) receivers that are capable of receiving the new L5 signal. The installation of the G-III WAAS reference receivers will ensure WAAS viability prior to the Sunset of GPS L2 P(y) Civil signal in 2021.
