GPS Legacy Aviation System (GLAS™) Protocol: The best way to LPV approaches.
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 that are appropriate for Pro Line 21 and Honeywell Primus flight decks. Installing IFDs with GLAS 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 IFD5XX 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.
