General Atomics Aeronautical Systems(GA‑ASI) announced the demonstration of an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)-based surveillance system. This system provides pilots with enhanced situational awareness and supports GA-ASI’s overall airborne sense-and-avoid architecture for its Predator® B RPA.
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast(ADS-B) is the GPS-based surveillance system. System is the cornerstone of the FAA’s “Next Gen” Air Traffic Management (ATM) system, which aims to convert America’s ATC system from a ground-based system to a satellite-based system, resulting in simplified air traffic logistics and enhanced aircraft safety margins.
