Airport Mapping Database and ARINC 816

AMDB is the detailed data that’s necessary to power today’s airport moving map applications. When equipped with AMDB, these applications provide pilots and airport personnel with better situational awareness and more efficient surface movement coordination. AMDB:

  • Is the industry’s most rigorous validation procedures and revision schedules to ensure the accuracy, timeliness and reliability of our airport mapping database.
  • Offers worldwide coverage with nearly 1,000 airports.
  • Production processes comply with numerous industry standards and quality system certifications, including DO-200A/DO-272C, ED-99C, ISO 9001, FAA LOA Type 1 and 2, etc.
  • Captures key airport features: hard surfaces such as runways, taxiways, or aprons; operational functions such as taxi lines, aircraft stands or holding positions; and virtually defined geometries such as communication frequency areas.
  • Provides high spatial accuracy and comprehensive updates based on the 28-day AIRAC cycle.

Jeppesen China NavData Solution

The Jeppesen China NavData Solution involves the deployment of a data production system called Jeppesen Aviation Data Engine (JADE) at China Air Traffic Management Bureau (ATMB).

This new cooperation ensures Chinese operators have access to our proven data processing capabilities and navigation expertise during the country’s rapid growth in aviation.

Jeppesen LPV Data Service

The Jeppesen Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV) Data Service enables precision approach capabilities on Boeing 737 MAX 10 and 777X aircraft, independent of weather conditions and without relying on the ground infrastructure typical of Instrument Landing Systems (ILS).

  • Reduces the likelihood of costly diversions due to low visibility conditions when aging ground-based navigation infrastructure (ILS or GLS) is inoperable
  • Save fuel with more direct routing that is not limited by mountainous terrain or curved approaches
  • Avoid crew training costs because no specialized aircrew training is required to perform precision approach and landing on non-precision runways

The FAA has already stated that navigation functions will be transitioned from ground to satellite-based, so prepare your new aircraft for the future by installing a multi-mode receiver (MMR) with the Jeppesen LPV Data Service.

Jeppesen Terrain Database

The Jeppesen Terrain Database provides accurate terrain data to prevent controlled flight into terrain and to manage terrain avoidance warning systems. Like thousands of other pilots, dispatch and other flight operation planners, you can count on the Jeppesen Terrain Database to provide you with the most accurate information possible when there’s no room for error.  

  • The Jeppesen Terrain Database provides a global, uniform, high-quality terrain data source 
  • Base terrain layer resolution meets the basic accuracy requirements of US FAA Technical Standard Order C151b, Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems, and Area 1 under ICAO Annex 15 
  • Jeppesen proprietary topography algorithms fill in any voids in SRTM data 
  • Trace any elevation value back to its original source via intuitive graphical metadata 
  • Terrain data is produced, maintained and distributed according to assurance level 2 requirements established by RTCA Document DO-200A, Standards for Processing of Aeronautical Data
