One of several similar software upgrades available for later-model Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning Systems is the Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS).
In order to lower the hazards of runway incursion, runway confusion, and runway excursions, RAAS is intended to increase situational awareness among the flight crew.
Runway Awareness and Advisory System keeps track of how an aircraft manoeuvres around the airport using information about the airport recorded in the EGPWS database, together with GPS and other onboard sensors.
The flight crew receives five routine advisories from AAS. During routine operations, the crew will hear three of these announcements, which will help them be more aware of their position in relation to the runway during taxi and flight operations.
They are made to lower the possibility of a runway incursion. The two remaining routine advisories give information regarding the position of the aircraft on the runway and work to lower the possibility of overruns.
The Global aircraft runway awareness and advisory system market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
To improve the pilot’s situational awareness during ground and air operations related to the runway, Honeywell developed the Runway Awareness and Advisory System (RAAS), a heads-up advisory system with aural notifications.
Primus Apex and Primus Epic platforms both support RAAS. Your Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning Systems (EGPWS) MK V, MK V-A, MK VII, or Epic EGPWS Module requires a quick and simple software upgrade (EGPWM).
The ROAAS system was jointly developed by Gulfstream and Honeywell with the goals of assisting the flight crew in making decisions regarding a go-around and the timely use of all available stopping devices during an impending runway overrun situation.
Its intended functions include assisting flight crew awareness of aircraft stopping-points relative to the approaching runway based on real-time aircraft energy state. Without extra input from the flight crew, ROAAS performs computations using the chosen runway conditions from the FMS.
The fundamental idea is to minimise the impact on the flight deck in terms of crew workload and training, while assisting crew decision-making and raising awareness of a potential runway overrun.
