FAA Navigation Programs sustains current navigation services, supports the transition to performance-based navigation (PBN), and delivers Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) services.
Today, U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) navigation services are based on a combination of ground-based and satellite-based services. PBN capabilities have been initiated. In the future, navigation services will continue to be based on a combination of ground based and satellite based services for all phases of flight; although ground -based NAVAIDS infrastructure will be reduced.
