The system will provide operators with continually advanced navigation capabilities, features and functionality through anticipated software and hardware updates.

The system will also enable the integration of future autonomy capabilities. The next-generation navigation system features a suite of down-looking sensors that gather imagery data and track features on the ground, as well as an embedded compute module to process and determine the precise location of an aircraft while it is in flight. Designed with the operator in mind, the system automatically transitions to and from GPS-denied navigation mode without any input from the operator.
