explanation of the Honeywell RAAS. It contains a description
of system performance assuming the identified options are
active.
Why RAAS?
It is well recognized that runway incursions and overruns are
a high-profile operational safety issue worldwide. For
example, the USA is currently experiencing at least one
runway incursion per day at towered airports alone. Safety
data indicate that lack of flight crew position awareness
during ground operations and on approach have contributed to
such
recommendations advocate the need for new flight deck
runway incursion prevention systems. Honeywell has
developed the RAAS as a practical and low-cost system with
significant input from hundreds of pilots. Extensive human
factors evaluations confirm the positive operational safety
benefits of RAAS: increased position awareness; enhanced
crew decision making; reduced crew workload; and superior
detection of position errors leading to runway incursions.
