Implementing NextGen initiatives involves complex activities ranging from concept development to deployments of capabilities in the National Airspace System (NAS).
Since August, 11 new ADS-B radio stations became operational. Additionally, the network includes advisory services and separation services. A service volume is a defined volume of airspace in the NAS within which a set of ADS-B services are available and achieved the required performance for the set of services.
Since August, new service volumes included:
More specific localized capabilities enabled by ADS-B and a description of the three types of service volumes (En Route, Terminal and Surface) can be found on the NextGen website under technical maps.
Satellite-based procedures, updated every eight weeks, are real implementations that currently provide benefits. These implemented procedures and identification of other implementations are on our interactive maps.
