Abstract:

This plan describes the Aircraft Position Report Demonstration which was designed to implement and verify an aircraftsatellite data link for aircraft position reports. The demonstration will implement the Automatic Dependent Surveillance ADS function which will provide frequent aircraft position updates for oceanic flights outside the coverage of land based radar. Aircraft equipped with satellite communication avionics will transmit position reports to a satellite which will relay signals to a ground receiving station. From the ground station, the messages will be sent via the Aeronautical Radio, Inc. ARINC network to the Federal Aviation Administration FAA Technical Center at the Atlantic City International Airport. The position reports will be processed and displayed on a map showing routes, sectors, and fixes at the FAA Technical Center and a remote processor and display will allow demonstrations to be viewed at Air Route Traffic Control Centers.
