Avionics Sales Corporation offers the most comprehensive line of certified Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) solutions in the market, allowing you the opportunity to see more and fly safer than ever before.

ADS-B is an environmentally friendly technology that enhances safety, efficiency and directly benefits pilots, controllers, airports, airlines, and the public. It forms the foundation for NextGen by moving from ground radar and navigational aids to precise tracking using satellite signals.

With the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast system for the first time, pilots will see what controllers see, showing other aircraft in the sky. Cockpit displays also pinpoint hazardous weather and terrain and give pilots important flight information, such as temporary flight restrictions.

ADS-B reduces the risk of runway incursions with cockpit and controller displays. That shows the location of aircraft and equipped ground vehicles on airport surfaces – even at night or during heavy rainfall. Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast applications now being developed will give pilots indications or alerts of potential collisions. This system also provides more coverage since ground stations are so much easier to place than radar.

Remote areas without radar coverage, like the Gulf of Mexico and parts of Alaska, now have surveillance with ADS-B. Relying on satellites instead of ground navigational aids also means aircraft will be able, to fly more directly from Point A to B, saving time, money and reducing fuel burn and emissions.

The improved accuracy, integrity, and reliability of satellite signals over radar mean controllers eventually will be able to safely reduce the minimum separation distance between aircraft and increase capacity in the nation’s skies.

The FAA published Federal Regulation 14 CFR § 91.225 and 14 CFR § 91.227 in May 2010. The final rule dictates that effective January 1, 2020, aircraft operating in airspace defined in 91.225 need to have an Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system that includes a certified position source capable of meeting requirements established in 91.227. These regulations set a minimum performance standard for both ADS-B Transmitter and the position sources integrated with the ADS-B equipment of your aircraft.
