Television Positioning System (TVPS)

NXT has developed a Second Generation Television Positioning System (TVPS) Video Capture Subsystem that is used to photograph the Threshold and Runway End during Flight Inspection runway approaches. The Images are used for determining an accurate position "Fix" at each end of the runway. The TVPS System is used in conjunction with the Radio Altimeter to negate the drift commonly associated with the Inertial Navigation Systems. TVPS is used for ILS, PAR/VGSI, GPSNP and WAAS Inspections.

Over 40 of these systems have been delivered and are currently used in United States FAA Aircraft.
