Sweden: Saab has completed the deployment of its Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) system for Naviair, the Air Navigation Service Provider for Denmark. The ADS-B system will provide surveillance of ADS-B-equipped en route flights over Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The system provides ADS-B data to the Reykjavik Control Area Center, where controllers will utilise the accurate, high update rate surveillance picture to reduce the separation between ADS-B equipped aircraft. To date, approximately 70% of flights operating in this area are equipped with ADS-B-out avionics. Naviair expects to place the ADS-B system into full operation in the fourth quarter 2014.
Saab’s ADS-B solution provides reliable, safety-certifiable surveillance of equipped aircraft utilising proven ED-129-compliant sensors that feed data to new or legacy Air Traffic Management systems in standard ASTERIX messages. An ADS-B system from Saab delivers long-range surveillance while using low bandwidth communications links for a high performance, low operating cost solution. Saab ground stations have flexible installation requirements (inside a shelter or outside) and support multilateration with a simple software upgrade.
