GPS has become an indispensable aid for airborne, land and marine navigation. Correct usage and effective maintenance of GPS equipment require a good knowledge of GPS principles, operation and equipment circuitry. The GPS trainer provi desin-depth knowledge and hands-on experience to maintain and troubleshoot GP S equipment. A fault panel lets the instructor insert commonly encountered faults so that trainees can learn how to troubleshoot and repair the GPS equipment in actual situations. The GPS Trainer equipment consists of a panel mounted IFR- approved GPS receiver, a GPS antenna, and a GPS signal simulator. Asimul at or for altitude input is included to provide full navigation and operational capabilities. Optional system components may be added and interfaced to the system which increase its features and capabilities. Some of these optional components include an external course deviation indicator (CDI) or horizontal situation indicator (HSI), autopilot, and external annunciators.
