ADS-B Out

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast or ADS-B as it is known, is a new Air Traffic Control technique for aircraft in both Non-Radar and Radar Airspace. Guiding aircraft to their destination in a safer more efficient way.

ADS-B is a means by which aircraft, aerodrome vehicles and other objects can automatically transmit and receive data. Identifying themselves and their position via a data-link. This user friendly broadcast mode keeps communication lines open, informing people on the ground and in the air of real time developments. ADS-B out is the first step and will only send data from the aircraft. 

Non-reliant on external stimuli the ADS-B is automatic, depending solely on existing on-board transmission services to provide surveillance information to other users.

Underwater Locator Device - ULD

Events related to aircraft missing over oceanic areas have led to several new requirements, amongst which is the introduction of a long-range Underwater Locator Device (ULD).

The ULD low frequency (8.8kHz) technology is used to increase the range at which aircraft submerged wreckage can be located.

It will be mounted on the aircraft structure free of sound absorbent materials and not in wing sections or empennage. The installation is in accordance with ARINC specification 667, which describes the removal, installation and maintenance aspects of an ULD installation.

Note that the ULD is not to be confused with the Underwater Locator Beacons (ULB) as installed on the CVR and FDRs. The ULD is complementary to the ULB and is mounted to the aircraft structure.

ICAO states that by January 1st 2018 aircraft flying long range over water with a MTOW>27.000 kg must be equipped with an ULD. Long range over water is determined by the exceedance of the distance from a suitable emergency landing spot. The distance corresponds to 120 min at cruise speed or 400NM whichever is the lesser.

EASA states that by January 1st 2019 Passenger aircraft flying long range over water with a MTOW>27.000 kg and cargo aircraft with MTOW > 45.500kg must be equipped with an ULD. Long range over water is determined by a distance >180 NM from shore.

Other authorities have accepted similar rules.

ADS-B Out for Gulfstream Galaxy G200

328 has partnered with Columbia Jet Service GmbH to offer an STC for ADS-B Out featured by Rockwell Collins on Gulfstream G150 & G200 aircraft, representing around 360 aircraft worldwide. Recently, 328 completed an EASA STC for Gulfstream G200 based on Rockwell Collins transponder and GPS system. The contract was awarded from ACC Columbia, the work was performed in Altenrhein, Switzerland at Altenrhein Aviation Ltd.

ADS-B is seen as being vital to maintaining future efficient airspace management in busy airspace. ADS-B uses satellite and transponder technology to provide the following benefits in an ADS-B environment: More aircraft can operate safely in the same airspace, so congestion is reduced. ADS-B technology enables more direct aircraft routing – this can generate significant time and fuel savings. in addition, ADS-B enhances flight safety and collision avoidance.
