Setting the standard: the collaborative approach to unlocking the potential of space-based ADS-B
For the first time in the history of aviation, air traffic controllers can now track aircraft traversing the North Atlantic in real-time. Many organizations across the industry are involved in different facets of this dramatic shift with one common goal in mind ‒ leveraging space-based ADS-B technology to optimize air traffic safety and efficiency. To that end, NAV CANADA has lead the way for enhanced separation standards over the North Atlantic – a standard that required years of collaboration with ICAO partners.
Executive Take: Satellite-Based Surveillance is Enhancing Canadian Air Navigation
January 2019 marked the beginning of a new era in air traffic surveillance with the eighth successful (and final) launch and deployment of the satellite constellation hosting Aireon space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast payloads. NAV CANADA is rolling out services in the Edmonton and Gander flight information regions, using this ground-breaking technology. In advance of this monumental first for global air navigation surveillance, we took the opportunity to speak with Rudy Kellar, Executive Vice President, Service Delivery, about the Company’s initial involvement with Aireon and what space-based ADS-B means for our air navigation services, going forward.
@ATSAC2 Thank you. We’re aware of this and monitoring it very closely.
@KidCraig Happy to hear that!
