GPS Legacy Aviation System (GLAS™ ) Technology

EASA has extended the deadline for ADS-B Out.   If you have not upgraded your aircraft,  now is the time to consider adding LPV to your upgrade.

GLAS™ is a highly integrated, simple to install method of enabling legacy pre-WAAS EFIS flight decks to fly GPS approaches with vertical guidance. It has different configurations appropriate for most legacy EFIS systems including Pro Line 21 and Primus 1000. Installing IFDs with GLAS technology provides ADS-B position data as well as being the least expensive, quickest and most functional way to add LPV capability to these legacy EFIS aircraft. GLAS tightly integrates either the internal VHF of our IFD550 or the external VHF provided in some configurations using the IFD545 to seamlessly switch the EFIS and autopilot ILS input to GPS with vertical guidance. There are appropriate annunciations and reversion mode considerations in each installation.
