Excerpt: The benefits of GNSS have created dependencies on navigation in modern day aviation systems. Many of these systems operate with no backup navigation source. This makes the capabilities supported by precise navigation vulnerable. This paper investigates a contemporary approach to terrain-referenced navigation (TRN), used to preserve an aircraft’s navigation solution during periods of GNSS denial. © 2021 Institute of Navigation.
