It is expected that the WAAS
GEO 6 payload will be launched in the second quarter of 2017.
It's assumed that if the aircraft has WAAS
GPS navigation capability, it also has PBN capability.
The horizontal and vertical position error graphs show that 95 percent of the time, the errors were about four vertical meters and three horizontal meters, even without WAAS
NovAtel is an existing partner of the FAA on the WAAS
programme and provided and supported two previous generations of reference receivers for the WAAS
builds on Horizon's previous advances - made in conjunction with its sister airline, Alaska Airlines - in Flight Management System (FMS) technology, such as Required Navigational Performance (RNP) and Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite networks.
Avidyne's full-stack retrofit avionics line includes the AXP340 transponder, which can be connected with the company's IFD550/540/440 navigators for a WAAS

As reported in Government Computing News, recent use of the WAAS
in a series of demonstration flights along the East Coast successfully indicated the Raytheon-developed navigation system's capability to augment GPS data to help pilots keep their aircraft on track.
The deployment of PCTEL's WAAS
antennas for the Global Positioning Satellite-Aided Geosynchronous Augmented Navigation (GAGAN) system further establishes PCTEL as a leader in the precision GPS antenna market.
It also required a pricey WAAS
GPS input (which meant a $10,000-plus GNS navigator upgrade) to complete the ADS-B output data.
