Acquiring area navigation (RNAV) approach capability for the F-15EX.
The F-15EX has no ability to use area navigation (RNAV) approaches that utilize global positioning system
(GPS) satellites. The F-15EX will still utilize the same navigation aids as the 40 year old jet its replacing in the
A majority of approaches in the United States and more importantly around the world have started to go away
from the traditional instrument landing systems (ILS) and tactical air navigation system (TACAN) to include
VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) navigation aides. These systems are being replaced with RNAV approaches
that are more accurate and more cost effective with no maintenance to any supporting ground equipment.
Adding RNAV approaches to the F-15EX provides a cost effective navigational system, which is safer and
more accurate. This will increase the F-15EX capability around the world.
