Meeting Topic
ADS-B and Gliders

Speaker: Aaron Scicluna and others


Synopsis: Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS–B) is a cooperative surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked. The information can be received by other aircraft to provide situational awareness and allow self separation. ADS–B is "automatic" in that it requires no pilot or external input. It is "dependent" in that it depends on data from the aircraft's navigation system. ADS–B is an element of the US Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). How might this impact Gliders?

Meeting topic may change without notice.
