ADS-B In-Trail Procedures (ITP)
  • US SBS Program Office developing airborne ADS-B applications expected to provide benefits to operators who equip their aircraft with appropriate avionics
  • One such airborne ADS-B application being developed is ADS-B ITP
  • ADS-B ITP will enable flight level changes for aircraft equipped with ADS-B receivers and on-board automation


  • Maneuvering aircraft obtains flight ID, altitude, position and ground speed transmitted by proximate ADS-B equipped non-maneuvering aircraft
  • Based on ADS-B data from the non-maneuvering aircraft, a pilot can make an ITP altitude change request to ATC
  • Controller verifies the ITP and reference aircraft are same track and maximum closing Mach differential not exceeded
  • Clearance for the climb or descent issued
  • Maneuvering aircraft may then vertically transition through the altitude of non-maneuvering aircraft

ADS-B ITP Operational Trial
  • FAA has recently entered into an agreement with United Airlines for an operational trial of ADS-B ITP in the South Pacific on revenue flights
  • Equipped United Airlines 747-400’s operating between the US West Coast and Australia and on return flights
  • Planned that between one third and one half of the 747’s operating on the route will be equipped and authorized to request an ITP maneuver
  • Initial expectations are between one and two ITP procedures performed per week of operations

ADS-B ITP Operational Trial
  • Designated data collection activity for both United Airlines and Oakland ARTCC
    • Determine how often procedure is requested, how often it is cleared, and for the times it is denied, what are reasons for denial
    • Validate air traffic controllers applying ADS-B ITP find it a useful tool, with minimal impact on workload
    • Determine significance and value of increased situational awareness for flight crew
    • Validate impact on contingency fuel loading by dispatch and flight crews when they are aware that aircraft will be ITP capable

ADS-B ITP Operational Trial
  • Adopted as an initiative within the ASPIRE program
  • Establishes a cooperative agreement between the FAA and Airservices Australia which will allow the two organizations to share data and provide a mechanism for providing mutual support of the operational trial

ADS-B ITP Operational Trial
  • FAA desires to lead operational trial of ADS-B ITP along SOPAC routes within next 18 months
  • Other required work includes
    • Performing all required safety management system (SMS) processes and analyses
    • Obtaining FAA aircraft certification and flight standards approvals
    • Working with international community on development and approval of applicable separation standards and obtaining regional authorization for application
