Abstract
Automatic Dependant Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) is a self-reporting system by which airplanes send their identity and positional information to ground-based stations, and other airplanes, based on data they receive from a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) such as GPS. It is similar in function to the marine Automatic Identification System (AIS) as its users continuously broadcast their information to ground stations, and can also form networks with other uses that are within range. The ground stations relay the information to other stations via satellite. An overview of the state of ADS-B technology is presented in this Technical Memorandum in conjunction with a discussion of current and planned system installations. The main recommendation of this report is that ADS-B deserves further study as it appears that worldwide implementation is inevitable.
