In June 2013, the Navy Resources and Requirements Review Board directed the continuing development of JPALS for aircraft carriers, amphibious assault ships and installation of ILS ashore through sundown of PAR by 2030, when ILS aircraft integration is scheduled for completion.
Carriers will have AN/SPN-46 for currently configured aircraft and JPALS for the F-35C, while amphibious assault ships will have AN/ SPN-35 for currently configured aircraft and JPALS for the F-35B.
As the JPALS
program progressed through the acquisition life cycle, the program was being asked more frequently to ensure O&S costs were as fully captured as possible--and being managed.
signal will provide two additional advantages: It is highly jam-resistant, and it has a low probability of intercept.
features anti-jam protection to assure mission continuity in a hostile environment.
Using local area differential GPS, JPALS
serves to be an all-weather, anti-jam approach and landing system.
The Raytheon team's solution for JPALS
improves safety, lowers the total cost of ownership during the program's lifecycle and provides greater flexibility and efficiency.
In addition to developing the WAAS for the Federal Aviation Administration and JPALS
for the Navy, Stanford is also working to deploy a complementary Local Area Augmentation System (LAAS) that will be used at major airports.
Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) is a fast-growing research, development and manufacturing company that has been involved in all generations of ACLS equipment starting in 1960s from AN/SPN-10 and SPN-42 to SPN-46 and JPALS
is the future multi-service, low-visibility landing system that replaces aging systems with a single technology for all services and missions.
The system includes provisions to incorporate emerging JPALS
and GPS modernization requirements as well," said James Hvizd, DAR technology manager for Raytheon's Precision Guidance Systems business area.
system is being developed to meet the Defense Department's need for an anti-jam, secure, all weather Category II/III aircraft landing system that will be fully interoperable with planned civil systems utilizing the same technology.
