Overview: Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B)
  • Automatic
    • Periodically transmits information with no pilot or operator input required
  • Dependent
    • Position and velocity vector are derived from the Global Positioning System (GPS)
  • Surveillance -
    • A method of determining position of aircraft, vehicles, or other asset
  • Broadcast
    • Transmitted information available to anyone with the appropriate receiving equipment

Overview: Traffic Information Service - Broadcast / Flight Information Service - Broadcast

TIS-B is a service which provides ADS-B equipped aircraft with position reports from secondary surveillance radar on non-ADS-B equipped aircraft.

FIS-B transmits graphical National Weather Service products, temporary flight restrictions (TFRs), and special use airspace.

notice of proposed rulemaking nprm summary
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) Summary
  • All aircraft operating in the following airspace would have to meet the proposed performance requirements for ADS-B Out:
    • Class A, B and C airspace
    • All airspace at and above 10,000 feet MSL over the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia
    • Within 30 nautical miles of airports listed in 41 CFR Part 91, Appendix D, from the surface up to 10,000 feet MSL
    • Class E airspace over the Gulf of Mexico from the coastline of the United States out to 12 nautical miles, at and above 3,000 feet MSL
notice of proposed rulemaking nprm status
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) Status
  • The Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) Was Chartered in July 2007
    • As an initial tasking before the publication of the NPRM, the ARC would serve as a platform for the development of a report on how operational benefits of ADS-B could be optimized before compliance with a nationwide ADS-B mandate. This report was delivered to the FAA in October 2007.
    • Once the NPRM has been published and reviewed by the ARC, the ARC would make specific recommendations to the FAA about any changes that should be made to the proposed language in the NPRM. The ARC is scheduled to provide NPRM recommendations to the FAA in September 2008.
  • The NPRM comment period closed on March 3, 2008
  • The FAA has categorized the comments that were received
    • Number of Submittals (excluding FAA / DOT) = 172
      • Excludes duplicates, Department of Transportation and requests for extension
    • Number of Comments = 1,372 (101 positive, 1,271 non-positive)
    • Number of Issues = 85
