Aireon LLC has deployed a space-based air traffic surveillance system for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) equipped aircraft throughout the entire globe.
FlightAware integrates global aircraft position data from the Aireon space-based automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast
(ADS-B) system, hosted on the Iridium Next satellite constellation.
It also carries an automatic ship identification system (AIS), automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast
(ADS-B) system and a data collection system (DCS) which facilitates in the detection of ships and aircraft.
Through this award, NASA will replace its existing IFF interrogator system with technology that preserves current capabilities and expands on supported modes, which will now include Mode 5, Mode S and full-range Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
. The CTD, which is being installed at all 34 existing ASR-8 radar sites currently utilized in the national airspace, will improve radar performance by enhancing digital weather processing and small target detection, while also extending service life.
Once testing is completed, Iridium will also hand over control of Aireon's Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
hosted payload, to the team at Aireon's Hosted Payload Operations Centre (HPOC).
As airspace becomes increasingly crowded, transitioning to Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) based on GPS is key to safely navigating the skies and increasing efficiency.
Modern planes communicate their position through ADS-B, or Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
The agreement by the World Radiocommunciation Conference (WRC) means that satellites will be able to receive transmissions, known as automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast
(ADS-B), that aircraft currently send only to other aircraft and to ground stations.
Saab Aeronautical Radio of Thailand has selected defense and security company Saab Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (AEROTHAI), the Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) for Thailand, has selected defense and security company Saab to deploy an upgraded and expanded Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) system across Thailand.
The venture will use Iridium's next-generation constellation of 66 cross-linked Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites to meet the need of expanding Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) network being deployed by Exelis.
