In part because of Comair's selection of Honeywell navigation and weather equipment, the airline can meet existing and upcoming regulations mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration, such as the automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast
Aireon announced today the successful fourth launch and deployment of its space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) payloads hosted onboard the Iridium NEXT satellite constellation.
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).
Aireon is deploying a space-based air traffic surveillance system for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) equipped aircraft throughout the entire globe.
With the new certification, operators can upgrade their fleets with Honeywell's latest transponder to comply with all Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
requirements for the DO-260B retrofit mandate, which includes firmware update and configuration changes.
Under the deal, the satellites will receive transmissions, known as automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast
, or ADS-B.
Modern planes communicate their position through ADS-B, or Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
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
The launch will be the first sale of data collected through the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) network deployed as part of the Federal Aviation Administration s (FAA) NextGen initiative.
The Helicopter Association International says chopper operators will supply manpower, facilities, and free flights totaling a value of $100 million to get Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) up and running.
The Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast
(ADS-B) is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked.
