SP118 - ADS-B handbook
ADS-B is a new and better way of providing air traffic surveillance and increasing your cockpit situational awareness. Instead of using ground based radar to interrogate aircraft transponders to determine their positions, aircraft with ADS-B use global navigation satellite systems to find their own position and then automatically report it. This revised 24-page A5 booklet explains the fundamentals of this satellite and radio-based system. Its contents, including a timeline, phraseology guide and chapter on human factors and ADS-B make it essential reading for any aviation professional.
