Flashcards in Navigation System Deck (4)
The Terrain Clearance Floor (TCF) mode creates an increasing terrain clearance envelope around the airport runway directly related to the distance from the runway.
Terrain Awareness and Display Mode
This function uses the aircraft geographic position from the GPS, aircraft altitude and a worldwide terrain database to predict potential conflict between the aircraft flight path and the terrain, and to provide aural alert and graphic displays of the conflicting terrain.
Global Navigation Satellite System
The Global Navigation Management System (GNSS) receives and processes Global Positioning System (GPS) Signals. The GNSS provides en route and terminal area guidance, autopilot coupling, roll steering and vertical deviation (non-coupled), along defined flight plan, selected on the MCDU.
