Gao, High-precision barometric altitude measurement method and technology, in: Information and Automation (ICIA), IEEE International Conference on Information and Automation, 2013.
Even with the correct altimeter setting your barometric altitude can differ from your true altitude by as much as 10 percent.
This functionality is accomplished through aircraft barometric altitude data (through the static system) and by the pilot inputting the current baro-setting.
The aircraft was initially positioned on the approach vector (i.e., zero lateral deviation) 7.6 nautical miles from the runway threshold at 2000 feet barometric altitude in level flight with an airspeed of 90 knots.
