A defence, security and civil technological services and solutions company Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) revealed on Friday that it has started integrating Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) capabilities for the US Air Force's largest airplanes, meeting an international deadline for equipping military aircraft with the latest satellite-based cooperative aircraft tracking technology.
Cooperative aircraft include those intruders capable of sharing their location, such as an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system, Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), or a transponder facilitating traffic detection and resolution.
The company's system comprises three sensors: the automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast, or ADS-B, a transponder that detects cooperative aircraft also carrying the sensor; the traffic collision avoidance system, or T-CAS; and the due regard radar, an air-to-air radar that detects aircraft that are not required to carry a transponder.
