PBN Infrastructure

The navigation infrastructure that supports PBN operations is either ground or space-based Navigation Aids (NAVAIDs).

In terms of ground-based 'conventional' NAVAIDs, PBN utilises VOR and DMEs only.  Space-based infrastructure, which is the primary navigation infrastructure supporting PBN, only focuses on the US NAVSTAR Global Position System (GPS) today.
