Abstract

The aim of this paper is to conceive the possibility of applying the Required Navigation Performance (RNP) requirements where Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) augmentations are considered for the Automatic Take-Off and Landing (ATOL). An aircraft, belonging to the Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) category of Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) has been considered as case-study. Once the avionic architecture has been designed, the Safety and risk analysis was carried out with a particular focus on Functional Hazard Analysis and Fault Tree Analysis techniques. The proposed methodology allows the researchers to evaluate the reliability of each avionic equipment and the safety level of the whole avionic system. Furthermore, the results pointed out the main criticalities of the architecture and some future in-depth studies are proposed.
