Abstract : Avionics Roadmap, Version 2.0 provides Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) planning organizations with a view of the far-term avionics-related capabilities required for operations envisaged for NextGen. It provides an aircraft perspective to allow the reader to understand the relationship between the various components of the National Airspace System (NAS), such as communication, navigation, surveillance, and related air traffic management systems and aircraft avionics systems. Aviation stakeholders will also benefit from reading this document because it provides a view of the aircraft-related capabilities required for late mid-term operations and the evolving far-term requirements of NextGen implementation. The timeline for development of new avionics systems typically extends out 15-20 years from initial concept development to aircraft equipage. If this work is not started now, any future enhancements to the NAS would be delayed, thus further delaying the potential benefits of NextGen.
