Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) is the future of air traffic surveillance in Australia and around the world.
ADS-B provides instrument flight rules, or IFR, aircraft fitted with ADS-B avionics, with enhanced safety and efficiency benefits at various altitudes rights across Australia.
Airservices has installed more than 70 ADS-B and multi-lateration ground stations across the continent, creating a network of real-time surveillance for our air traffic controllers.
All IFR aircraft fitted with ADS-B can take advantage, right now, of the benefits ADS-B offers.
With the benefits of enhanced safety, increased situational awareness for pilots and controllers, and improved operational efficiencies for operators, CASA has mandated the fitment of ADS-B in all IFR aircraft by 2 February 2017.
More information about the mandated fitment requirements and the benefits of using ADS-B and is available at www.airservicesaustralia.com/projects/ads-b or by calling (Freecall) 1800 844 487.
