The Terminal Aeronautical GNSS Geodetic Survey Program (formally the survey portion of the Ron Brown Airfield Initiative) began after the death of Ron Brown and the issuance of the SecDef directives. This program provides ground truth surveyed coordinates for the aerodromes including the runways, Navigation Aids, vertical obstructions and ground control points. This information provides highly accurate, <.25meter, WGS 84 referenced 3d coordinates and EGM 96 orthometric heights critical to Flight Safety. It also ensures a common geodetic frame of reference (WGS-84) for all air operations on an international scale. This program, working through ICAO and other international agencies, builds good international relations with all our partner countries and international organizations.
