ADS-B Solutions

StandardAero offers Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) supplemental type certificate (STC) solutions for light, medium and heavy helicopters.

ADS-B Out technology enables an aircraft to automatically determine and broadcast its position, velocity, heading and attitude via satellite navigation (e.g. GPS). This information is then received by air traffic control ground stations, allowing aircraft to be tracked with greater accuracy than traditional ground radar, even in remote areas. 

ADS-B In technology takes it one step further, with the ability to receive transmissions from ADS-B ground stations (including subscription-free weather and traffic information) as well as from other ADS-B Out equipped aircraft.

As such, ADS-B allows air traffic controllers to optimize aircraft separation, improving safety and efficiency, while at the same time enhancing situational awareness for pilots.

ADS-B is being implemented globally, with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) both requiring aircraft operating in controlled aerospace to be equipped with the technology by January 1, 2020. ADS-B has already been mandated in several areas of the world, including Brazil’s Campos Basin.
