The world-wide experts in Performance Based Navigation

DESIGNby NAVBLUE applies Performance-Based Navigation principles to redesign your approach and departure procedures as well as your airspace, so that airlines and airports can operate with increased efficiency and safety.

How does it work?

DESIGNby NAVBLUE allows you to: develop optimized concepts of operation (CONOPS) and validate them through Fast Time Simulation; design and validate PBN approach/departure procedures; support Authorities and ANSPs in implementing the procedures (regulatory support, ATC training, etc.) and airlines to obtain their operational approvals (crew training, RNP operational approval support, etc.). The CONOPS is derived from a thorough assessment of the current situation, future planning and a gap analysis of existing operations.


  1. Reduce fuel consumption

    Improve operational efficiency by providing more direct routes, shorter approaches, optimized vertical profiles (Continuous Descent Operations) and improved payload.

  2. Increase capacity

    Increase airport capacity by a challenging review of ground operations and airside infrastructure, de-conflicting departures and arrivals, and optimizing airspace usage while reducing ATC workload.

  3. Reduce environmental footprint

    Reduce noise in sensitive areas and aircraft CO2 emissions by providing shorter routes.

  4. Enhance safety

    Provide fully repeatable and manageable procedures defined down to runway threshold, reduce probability of unstabilized approaches and missed approaches using advanced navigation concepts like RNP AR.

  5. Improve airport accessibility

    Lower approach minima in terrain-challenging environments and reduce the number of weather related diversions and cancellations.
