ADS-B - Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast Improved pilot and controller situational awareness



Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) offers significant operational enhancements such as improved pilot and controller situational awareness.

On the surface, ADS-B is providing a cooperative surveillance source that is not available using traditional Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR).


For wide area surveillance, ADS-B is a more economical and/or technologically feasible alternative to traditional radar to provide surveillance coverage where there is typically limited or no radar coverage.

Saab ADS-B provides reliable, high availability surveillance and supports the latest ADS-B industry standards (DO-260B, ED-129).


Saab ground stations can also perform Mode S multilateration for multi-mode surveillance in today’s mixed equipage environment.
