CHAPTER TITLE: Improvement Plans
Below is a list of the figures (diagrams, charts, and pictures) from the IPH Chapter 5. They are listed in the order they are found in the Instrument Procedures Handbook.
Next Generation Air Transportation System (NEXGEN) introduces new technological innovations for weather forecasting, digital communications, and networking.
Satellite-based navigation and tracking allows more aircraft to fly closely together on more direct routes.
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) systems.
System wide information management (SWIM)—an information management system that helps deliver high quality, timely data to improve the efficiency of the national airspace.
Next generation data communications provides an additional means of two-way communication for ATC clearances, instructions, advisories, flight crew requests, and reports.
Next generation network enabled weather (NNEW) provides a common weather picture across the NAS.
National airspace voice switch (NVS) will replace existing voice switching systems with single air/ground and ground/ ground voice communication systems.
ADS-B services provide real-time precise positioning capability to ATC and ADS-B In-equipped aircraft throughout the NAS, in all phases of flight operations.
Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS).
Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS).
NextGen improves airport surface movements, reduces spacing and separation requirements, and better manages the overall flows into and out of busy airports.
Head-up guidance system (HGS).
HGS using a holographic display.
A synthetic vision system (SVS) is an electronic means to display a synthetic vision image of the external scene topography to the flight crew to assist during takeoffs, landings, and en route operations.
An aircraft on an approach equipped with a SVS.
Enhanced and synthetic vision displayed on primary flight displays.
Portable flight bag.
Installed flight bag.
Military operations area (MOA).
Temporary flight restriction (TFR).
Special use airspace charted on an aeronautical chart.
FAA website providing information for both special use airspace and temporary flight restrictions.
Center locations and information available to pilots through the FAA website.
State information available to pilots through the FAA website.
Map layer options and information available to pilots through the FAA website.
Airport information available to pilots through the FAA website.
