On the Containment Band of Position Errors for the Required Navigation Performance

1996 The Journal of Japan Institute of Navigation  
The required navigation performance ( RNP )is a statement of navigation accuracy of aircraft . The RNP type is represented by 95% containment band of errors . The meaning of the containment band differs corresponding to the dimension of errors , e . g . , one − dimensional or two − dimensiona1. Both dimensions are used for describing RNP types in the aviation werld . In this paper , the two − dimen − sional ( circular )containment is compared with one − dimensional one assuming the Gaussian and
