Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast or ADS-B Out 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 input the ADS-B Out is automatic, depending solely on existing on-board transmission services to provide surveillance information to other users.

ADS-B will gradually be mandated globally; Australia in 2013, followed by North America (January 2020) and Europe (June 2020). It is already mandatory in airspace above the Hudson Bay area with very positive results. All dates are applicable to retroﬁts.
