Why your next flight over the North Atlantic might be safer, faster and use less fuel
The availability of more optimal flight profiles for operators in the North Atlantic (NAT) Region has been made possible by the implementation of space-based automatic dependent surveillance–broadcast (ADS–B) technology.Read More
Space-based ADS-B Surveillance Improves Trips Over the North Atlantic
The deployment of space-based ADS-B is a game-changer within the aviation industry. The ability to discern the position, speed and altitude of every ADS-B equipped aircraft, in real time, is a transformational change to how controllers have historically managed air traffic.
Drone surveillance protecting endangered whales
During the summer of 2017, the Government of Canada reported that 12 North Atlantic right whales had died unexpectedly in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. NAV CANADA was asked to use its expertise and understanding of integrating Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS or drones) in Canadian airspace, to manage the required airspace while data was gathered that might prevent such deaths in the future.
World First: NAV CANADA Implements New ICAO Separation Standard at YYC
NAV CANADA just became the first ANSP in the world to implement a new ICAO standard: Established on RNP-AR (EoR). The new separation standard, implemented at Calgary International Airport, safely enables simultaneous arrivals on parallel runways, improves how traffic is integrated and increases use of quieter continuous descent operations.
Consulting on an ADS-B mandate
There are many technologies that have delivered improvements in aviation safety and efficiency and have therefore had wide adoption. Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast is certainly on track to be one of them.
