VeeLo NextGen Airport surface vehicle locator



The VeeLo NextGen is an airport surface vehicle locator designed to operate in conjunction with the widely used Multistatic Dependent Surveillance (MDS) system as well as Advanced-Surface Movement Guidance and Control Systems (A-SMGCS).

VeeLo NextGen enhances airport surface safety by providing a vehicle’s precise location and identification based on a transponder signal.


VeeLo NextGen attains its location from a Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS)-enabled Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver and broadcasts its location and identity using the Mode S Extended Squitter Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) message format.

The VeeLo NextGen’s rugged, weather-resistant enclosure can be temporarily or permanently mounted on the exterior of an airport surface vehicle.


Its low power consumption allows VeeLo NextGen to be operated from a vehicle’s accessory power outlet. Further, the vehicle locator can be field-configured using a PC serial interface and VeeLo NextGen software.
