Automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) is a surveillance technology for tracking aircraft as part of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). ADS-B makes flying significantly safer for the aviation community. This ADS-B live module tracks real ADS-B squitter signals in the sky, and with the help of a sophisticated simulation, it augments the received set of data and complements it with Mode A, C and S interrogation signals.

The signals are visualized in a plan-position-indicator as well as through pulse diagrams.

Parts

The ADS-B training system operaties with real life air traffic data, providing an understanding of real-life data, visualized through FreeScopes on an unlimited number of concurrent PCs.

Prerequisites

  • Computer with latest HTML5 enabled browser. Current versions of Chrome, Firefox, MS Internet explorer, Opera and Safari are able to read HTML5.
  • SkyRadar FreeScopes (comes free with the SkyRadar Cloud Server).
  • SkyRadar CloudServer.

Extensions

ADS-B pulse-diagram with uplink and downlink info. The downlink pulses are based on life signals measured with the antenna. The uplink signals (interrogation in Mode A, C and S) are synthetically generated and added.
