NExT ADS-B - An Affordable Architecture for ADS-B Coverage to the Surface for UAS in the NAS, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

We have designed an UAS and aircraft extended communication network to cover the critical low altitude national tracking gap from the ground to 3000ft in the FAA's NextGen. Our no-Gap ADS-B network design is nationally scalable and offers interoperability with the deployed national network. Our design does not need expensive infrastructure, it is modular for on-location demand yet is nationally scalable, so will cost far less than existing solutions. Our FAA approved secure weather data network design will be extended to provide secure UAS & aircraft traffic data. More »
