In a similar way as for ILS, CANARD Solution allows enhanced ground checks of CVOR/DVOR. By performing autonomous orbits and radials, the system can obtain accurate VOR measurements further away and higher than other ground-based methods. It is especially useful in areas with difficult access and for commissioning of new facilities.
The performance and accuracies required by ICAO Doc 8071 are achieved with our proprietary onboard ILS/VOR receiver. With a weight of less than 900gr, it provides all necessary VOR parameters (modulation levels, frequencies, bearing, etc.) required to perform the different checks and measurements.
Checks and measurements performed:
• Measured Bearing
• Bearing Error
• 30Hz Modulation depth & frequency
• 9960Hz Modulation depth & frequency
