ADS-B Out – FAA 2020 Mandate2018-06-12T14:33:32+00:00

ADS-B Out

ADS-B Out is the broadcasting part of ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast).  Through a transmitter, aircraft data such as airspeed, altitude, location and identification is broadcast to ADS-B ground stations.  In most cases, the real-time data that is received by air traffic controllers is more accurate than the data provided by current radar-based systems.

How does it work?
ads-b out step one

Determine Aircraft's Location

Using GPS and an ADS-B transponder, an aircraft’s exact location is determined.

ads-b out step two

Broadcast to Ground Station

The aircraft’s information, such as airspeed, altitude, and location, is broadcast to ADS-B ground stations as well as to other nearby aircraft.
ads-b out step three

Ground Station Relays to ATC

Ground stations relay the information to air traffic controllers.

ads-b out step four

Broadcast Back to Aircraft

A signal with flight data and radar weather is broadcast back to the aircraft from the ground station.

ads-b out step five

Broadcast to Nearby Aircraft

Aircraft equipped with ADS-B In will receive nearby aircraft’s information such as airspeed, altitude and location.

“Mandate upgrades are averaging 1,779 installs per month. Even at the high end, that would leave over 100,000 aircraft grounded on the first day of 2020. And even if fliers rushed to add the technology closer to the deadline, they’re likely to run into delays, since the number of aviation shops that can install it are limited.”
