FAA moves toward full WAAS implementation
by John Sheridan

After 10 frustrating years of technical delays, escalating costs and contractor changes, the FAA’s GPS wide area augmentation system (WAAS) is approaching the level of performance the agency originally envisioned for it back in the late 1980s. With the system’s initial operational capability declared in 2003 and 18 months of satisfactory performance now behind them, WAAS advocates can see light at the end of the tunnel.

LAAS is being handled by Honeywell now after the Raytheon delays prompted it's cancellation. They expect operation by 2006.
