Abstract

A GPS navigation system augmentation using a transponder landing system. Initially, the position of a reference ground station is determined. When an aircraft using an on-board GPS navigation system approaches the ground station, the ground station accurately determines the position of the aircraft using the aircraft's transponder replies. In addition, the ground station receives a current position for the aircraft measured by an on-board GPS navigation system. By comparing the position of the aircraft determined from the transponder replies with the GPS- calculated position provided by the aircraft, the ground station determine error information for the on-board GPS navigation system. The ground station then transmits the error information back to the aircraft. Using this error information, the on-board GPS navigation system can improve the accuracy of future position calculations for the aircraft.
