is a GPS-based precision landing system that guides aircraft to precision landings in all weather and surface conditions.
The primary recovery system for the future autonomous, carrier-based MQ-25 Stingray, the Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS
) essentially draws a flight path for an aircraft to follow during approach, Denham said.
One of Raytheon's discussions during the airshow centred around its development of the joint precision approach and landing system (JPALS
The system, known as JPALS
, is used to help pilots land airplanes in challenging conditions, such as bad weather or at night, said Brooks Cleveland, a business development consultant for Raytheon.

and allied warfighters with unprecedented levels of situational awareness and communication that lead to enhanced safety along with greater mission effectiveness.a The ARC-210 SDR provides Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS
) UHF data link, SATCOM Integrated Waveform and Combat Net Radio capabilities and is certified with Tactical Secure Voice 2, making it the only modernized, qualified airborne software defined radio with such capability.
Within the PMA-213 program portfolio, the Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS
) program was established to develop a global positioning system-based system that provides a high level of accuracy in position and landing information.
Some of NAVAIR's largest and most recognizable programs include the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), V-22 Osprey, CH-53K Heavy Lift Helicopter, Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS
), E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, F/A-18E/F Super Hornet and EA-18G Growler, P-8A Poseidon Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA), Tomahawk Cruise Missile, Firescout Vertical Takeoff Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (VTUAV), and Navy Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS).
GBAS is sometimes used to describe all ground-based correction systems (the military has one called JPALS
), but "GBAS" seems to be where the FAA is drifting with its terminology for what we think of as civilian LAAS, so that's what we'll start saying, too.
"By integrating a 24-channel GPS SAASM receiver and adaptive beam-steering anti-jam electronics into a single line replaceable unit, the DAR system is fully compatible with the existing GPS Antenna System-1 (GAS-1) antenna electronics." The system includes provisions to incorporate emerging joint precision approach and landing system (JPALS
) and GPS modernization requirements.
7-11, including using the Autonomic Logistic Information System (ALIS) aboard a carrier and the Joint Precision Approach and Landing System (JPALS
) in an operational setting.
The company was recently awarded a $255 million contract to complete its next-generation joint precision approach and landing system (JPALS
