On-Board Airport Navigation System

On-Board Airport Navigation System (OANS) debuts on A320 and A330 families of aircraft:
The OANS system, developed in conjunction with Thales, presents pilots with an overview map display of the airport apron and taxiways, coupled to a new interactive input device to indicate the aircraft’s location on that map. 

As a result, the On-Board Airport Navigation System helps reduce errors in surface navigation, prevent runway incursions by warning the pilots in advance, and reduce pilot workload in complex airfields.
With this system, both Airbus’ A320 and A330 product lines benefit from the advanced cockpit technology developed for the A380, which also will be applied on Airbus’ next-generation A350 XWB jetliner.

OANS was first type-certified on the A380 in 2006 and in 2013 the system was adapted and certified as an option for both the A320 and A330 product lines, leading to its introduction on in-service A320 Family commercial airliners and corporate jets, along with A330 aircraft.
