Abstract:

Recent technological advancements provide the aviation community with the opportunity to significantly improve the level of air traffic services. Automatic Dependent Surveillance ADS in conjunction with Satellite Communication SATCOM is the vehicle to accommodate real growth in oceanic traffic while preserving the excellent safety aspects demanded by the aviation user community. To realize these new services, it is necessary to introduce satellite-based communication into the Air Traffic Service ATS inventory. Aircraft position reports will be relayed to ground controllers via satellite. Two way data link via satellite will augment and ultimately replace the present HF communications. These two programs, ADS and SATCOM together form the basis for improved oceanic air traffic service. This symposium proceedings provides an overview of international programs and developments related to ADSSATCOM. Papers provide information on engineering trials, international coordination activities, development of standards and user programs. The symposium proceedings provides papers on current ADSSATCOM developments by government and industry of participating countries and to project the future activities required for successful implementation of the ADASATCOM programs.
