Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) is an air traffic surveillance technology that enables aircraft to be accurately tracked by air traffic controllers and other pilots without the need for conventional radar. While the initial application of ADS-B is to provide high quality surveillance for air traffic control, it also facilitates a number of advanced air-to-air applications that will in future significantly improve safety and performance of aircraft operations.
The technology delivers both environmental and economic benefits through:
In addition to delivering radar like surveillance at a fraction of the cost of radar, it also offers considerable safety improvements through:
Other ADS-B safety and operational benefits include:
