Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)

ADS-B is transforming all segments of aviation. Real-time precision, shared situational awareness, advanced applications for pilots and controllers alike – these are the hallmarks of ADS-B NextGen surveillance.

  • Real-time ADS-B is now the preferred method of surveillance for air traffic control in the NAS
  • General aviation is safer with ADS-B traffic, weather, and flight-information services
  • Safety and efficiency improve with advanced ADS-B applications

ADS-B improves safety and efficiency in the air and on runways, reduces costs, and lessens harmful effects on the environment.
