Use of Transponder Derived Data

Dec 13, 2019


The air transport industry is under constant pressure to increase airspace capacity and reduce separation minima without decreasing safety. One method to augment data derived by surveillance radar is Automatic Dependent Surveillance (ADS). This information is used to improve radar position accuracy and therefore facilitate specific reduced separation, enabling additional safety nets and reducing controller workload. Consideration should be given to the responsible use of this data as outlined in this paper.
