Project Description

Satellite-Based Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations Flight Test
By 2020 nearly all US aircraft must be equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) to fly in the National Airspace (NAS). This proposal is to fly a surrogate satellite ADS-B system at high altitude to evaluate overhead reception by future satellite platforms of both Universal Access Transceiver (UAT; 978 MHz) and 1090 Extended Squitter (ES) ADS-B signals from operational aircraft and ADS-B ground stations. The proposed flight opportunity will evaluate the collection of operational ADS-B signals from a relevant near space environment. More »
