Navigation Database Manufacturer’s Working Group
The Navigation DatabaseManufacturer’s (NDB) subcommittee of the ARINC Industry Activities promotes technical interaction between the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Aeronautical Database suppliers. The NDB provides a venue for the collaboration of informational content and the design of aeronautical database products and implementations. The working group also affords the aviation industry the ability to provide comments directly to the FAA regarding instrument flight procedure policy, design, criteria, and formatting.
The goal of the NDB is to assist aircraft operators, manufacturers, regulatory authorities, and database suppliers to maximize the operational and economic benefits of Flight Management System (FMS) navigation by the exchange of technical information that improves overall system performance.
