Common Questions

What is ADS-B?

ADS-B allows air traffic controllers (ATC) to see traffic with more precision than ever before. ADS-B uses GPS signals, not radar technology. It can accurately see where radar can’t (e.g., in remote areas or mountainous terrain) and can monitor traffic on the ground at airports as they navigate taxiways and runways. Aircraft equipped with ADS-B can also receive traffic and weather information.

How does it work?

Aircraft with ADS-B broadcast their identity, position, track, speed and other vital data via ADS-B “Out” technology. ATC and ADS-B “In” equipped aircraft receive this information once every second. Traffic and weather information is broadcast to equipped aircraft in the service area and displayed to the pilot.

What are the benefits?

More efficient routing and resource management means reduced congestion, noise, emission and fuel consumption. Detailed traffic and weather information represents a giant leap forward in pilot situational awareness and safety in the air.

When should I upgrade?

In the United States, if you operate in airspace that currently requires a Mode C or Mode S transponder, you must be equipped with ADS-B “Out” by January 1, 2020.
