The January/February 2019 issue of FAA Safety Briefing focuses on Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) technology, a foundational component of FAA's NextGen system for improving the safety and efficiency of the NAS. Building off our previous ADS-B focused issue in March/April 2017, articles here continue and expand the discussion about the safety and technology benefits of ADS-B, as well as provide important details and updates on the purchase, installation, and operation of ADS-B equipment. Remember – the deadline to equip with ADS-B Out is January 1, 2020.
