This document is a checklist designed to assist Federal Aviation Administration FAA certification personnel and global positioning system GPS receiver manufacturers in the evaluation of the pilot-system interface characteristics of GPS receivers to be certified according to TSO C129 A1, TRCADO-208, and AC 20-138. Its main focus is on controls, displays, and operating characteristics. The document is comprised of three sections, the Bench Test, the Flight Test, and the Appendices. The Bench Test is designed to evaluate GPS receiver design characteristics that do not require aircraft installation and flights. The Flight Test is designed to evaluate receiver design characteristics and functions under actual flight conditions. The Appendices, extracted portions of original documents, provide reference material for the specific topics covered in the checklist.
- Air Navigation and Guidance
- Human Factors Engineering and Man Machine Systems
