Farnborough International Airshow, July 16, 2018 – Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) is pleased to announce the new CMA-6024 GPS precision approach sensor that delivers both SBAS LP/LPV and GBAS GLS. As a standard-fit ARINC 743C compliant receiver, it can be integrated in a wide range of new-build or in-service aircraft. The CMA-6024 will be certified to the current and upcoming TCCA and FAA TSO requirements, the current RTCA Minimum Operational Performance Specifications, and to Design Assurance Level A (DAL-A).

The CMA-6024 includes a high performance GPS/SBAS/GBAS receiver and a complementary, state-of-the-art, Very High Frequency Data Broadcast (VDB) receiver that has been designed for easy and seamless installation in a challenging retrofit or new-build aircraft environment. As a DAL-A certified receiver, it meets or exceeds the most stringent requirements in support of CAT-IIIb. Furthermore, the CMA-6024 has been certifiably tested and is built to withstand the most demanding RTCA/DO160 environmental aviation requirements. The result is exceptional reliability and a superior MTBF. The CMA-6024 delivers SBAS LP/LPV and GBAS GLS spanning all helicopter, regional, business, and air transport aircraft in a wide range of environments.

Don Paolucci, Vice President, Navigation and Integrated Systems, said: “We are very proud to introduce our new CMA-6024 GPS precision approach receiver. It is unique in the market place, as it allows aircraft owners, operators, and manufacturers to upgrade their aircraft with a highly reliable ADS-B compliant receiver that delivers outstanding RNP performance, and it delivers both SBAS LP/LPV and GBAS GLS precision approach in one tough, DAL-A certified unit.”   

The CMA-6024 aviation GPS/SBAS/GBAS sensor features an ARINC 739A MCDU interface capability, and compatibility with some existing control panels, including our own compact CMA-5025 control panel. The CMA-6024 can host 2 cycles of the entire LP/LPV database and also features a built-in High Integrity Switch that allows selection between ILS or LP/LPV/GLS precision approach. Thus, the CMA-6024 offers a complete, self-contained, precision approach and navigation solution.  It also employs the NovAtel patented Narrow Correlator® technology and is the result of a collaborative effort with NovAtel Inc

The CMA-6024 will start delivery in the last quarter of 2018.
