Development of a High-Preceision ADS-B Based Conflict Alerting System for Operations in the Airport Enviornment
Author(s)Kunzi, Fabrice; Hansman, R. John
The introduction of Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) as the future source of aircraft surveillance worldwide provides an opportunity to introduce high-precision airborne conflict alerting systems for operations in high-density traffic environments. Current alerting systems have been very successful at preventing mid-air collisions in the en-route environment but have limited benefit in high-density environments such as near airports where most mid-air collisions occur (59%). Furthermore, introducing an ADS-B-enabled conflict alerting system generates an incentive for General Aviation users to voluntarily equip with ADS-B avionics.
