ADS-B

Aviation is an ever changing industry, especially in regards to technology. The newest tech that will soon sweep the industry is the ADS-B, Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast. The ADS-B is automatic, which means that it does not require any input to become active. One of the biggest advantages of the ADS-B is that the broadcast is continuous to all aircraft and ground stations with the corresponding equipment. This technology is an improvement from classic radar as it provides air traffic controllers and pilots a clearer picture of their airspace.
