Aircraft and equipment manufacturers, and others seeking initial pairing approval should consult their Aircraft Certification Office to determine the appropriate approval process for these initial installations. Once the performance of the initial pairing has been established, the FAA considers follow-on installations of the same pairing to be approved. Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) holders can issue an ATC and an STC when authorized by their FAA Organization Management Team (OMT).

Equipment manufacturers are the best source for previously approved pairing information. The FAA also maintains a list of approved pairings at the following link:  https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/equipadsb/installation/equipment/adsb_ready/

After initial approval, can applicable ADS-B Out systems be installed on aircraft not covered by that approval?

Yes, ADS-B Out systems that have previously received FAA approval and meet all of the conditions listed in the FAA’s policy memo on Installation Approval for ADS-B OUT Systems (http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgPolicy.nsf/0/1fdea629cd029a7c86257f7900601653/$FILE/AFS-360_2016-03-02.pdf), may be installed and returned to service on other aircraft without further data approval.

Please note that if an Approved Model List (AML) STC is available that provides for the installation of specific ADS-B transmitter and GPS pairings on listed aircraft, consider using the data from that AML STC for the ADS-B Out system installation.

What is the single most common ADS-B Out installation problem?

The single most common ADS-B Out installation problem is incorrect configuration of the flight identification code. Currently, more than 600 ADS-B Out equipped aircraft are operating with a misconfigured flight identification code with no other equipment issues. For general aviation, the flight identification code is configured in ADS-B equipment to transmit the aircraft’s assigned N-number (e.g., N1234). However, many misconfigured aircraft are transmitting flight identification codes with missing alphanumeric characters (1234 vs N1234, N123 vs N1234), no flight identification code (no data entered during installation), improper characters (???????), all zeros (000000), and others simply have a single character transposed (N1235 vs N1234).

You can verify that your aircraft is transmitting the correct flight identification code by requesting a Public ADS-B Performance Report at the following web address: https://adsbperformance.faa.gov/PAPRRequest.aspx.  Ensure the Tail Number and Last Flight ID on the cover page of the report match.

For more information on what to consider before and after installation of your ADS-B Out system, go to: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/equipadsb/installation.

The Installation Approval for ADS-B Out Systems (http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgPolicy.nsf/0/1FDEA629CD029A7C86257F7900601653?OpenDocument) memo explains the FAA’s policy regarding installation of ADS-B Out systems into civil aircraft.

You can also read several ADS-B related articles in the January/February 2019 issue of FAA Safety Briefing available athttps://www.faa.gov/news/safety_briefing, including Is My ADS-B Broadcasting Me: A Look at Non-Performing Emitters (http://bit.ly/adsbemitter) and Clearing the Crypto-Fog: Tips for Decoding and Deciding Among ADS-B Equipment options (http://bit.ly/adsbequip).

FlightAware moves into space-based ADS-B flight tracking

Alud Davies

By Alud Davies

When Daniel Baker set up FlightAware in 2005, his intention was to allow his friends and family to track his flights. At the time, Baker had recently completed flight school and wanted to be able to let people know when his flights had arrived safely.

There was a flight tracking solution available at the time, but it cost around $1,000 a month. Daniel was a software developer and immediately saw an opportunity to provide a publicly available interface for flight tracking.

His first major achievement was being able to negotiate with the US government so that he could get access to the flight tracking data in the first place.

Around the same time, Baker and Karl Lehenbauer (now FlightAware’s Chief Technology Officer) were working together on the forward-facing website as well as on the data processing in the background. Initially, the company was handling a few hundred messages from aircraft per second, but the pair knew that if the website was to be successful it had to be scaled properly to be able to handle much more data, not only from the FAA but from other sources as well.

The backend system that they built is called HyperFeed. Although it was initially built to be scaled, it has grown over the years to include lots more algorithms than the original system and now includes machine learning. It also now includes more data sources than the original FAA data source.

A big part of the new data sources come directly from ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast), a new technology that is becoming increasingly important. Using ADS-B an aircraft transmits data about its location, altitude and speed. The information from the aircraft is transmitted directly to a receiver – either on a satellite in space or on the ground – satellite as well as to other aircraft that are in the vicinity.

Picking up these signals means that a precise location, height and speed of the aircraft can always be tracked. The FAA has mandated that all aircraft flying in US airspace must be able to broadcast ADS-B out messages by January 1, 2020.

The technology was originally picked up by aviation enthusiasts to track the movement of aircraft. Originally enthusiasts were able to track an aircraft to a certain degree by intercepting its ACARS (Aircraft Communication and Addressing Systems) messages. The short data streams that are transmitted by ACARS do not include location or the height/speed of the aircraft, so once the use of ADS-B became more widespread, the enthusiast community jumped on the new technology.

Several companies jumped in, building boxes that could, with the use of an aerial, intercept and translate all of the ADS-B data and display it on a virtual radar screen. One of the first of these, built by UK-based firm Kinetic, was launched in 2005 and cost over $600.

As the technology became more widespread, more companies began offering solutions, with the result that prices came down, which, in turn, made them more popular.

With more of the boxes in circulation, people who owned them wanted to be able to share their data with others. If users had an external aerial mounted on the top of their house they could pick up signals from aircraft hundreds of miles away, but enthusiasts were also interested in seeing aircraft flying around other regions and maybe those that would be flying into their own range of view soon.

This idea of building networks of receivers around the world is now where FlightAware gets a lot of its data. It does offer a small USB dongle that plugs into a computer or laptop on one end and an aerial on the other end to serve the enthusiast community, at a price. But it also offers qualified locations a beefier model for free.

The company does this to increase its coverage around the world. Many developed regions already have large clusters of aviation enthusiasts that supply their received data in real time to websites like FlightAware as well as FlightRadar24.com. While FlightAware now has over 20,000 terrestrial ADS-B receivers in 190 countries, they are continuing to grow the network to gain coverage in remote places. In most places that means that FlightAware can receive aircraft data positions every two seconds, although the company admits that this is mostly over land.

“The terrestrial receivers are great and they give us really, really incredible coverage for aircraft flying over land and let us track aircraft movements on the ground at airports,” says Sara Orsi, director of marketing, FlightAware. “But over 70% of the earth is not land-based and that’s where Aireon space-based ADS-B comes in.”

To complement the terrestrial ADS-B network, FlightAware has partnered with Aireon to introduce space-based ADS-B flight tracking. The partnership with Aireon enables FlightAware to augment their terrestrial ADS-B coverage with tracking from Aireon’s space-based network, which is hosted on the Iridium NEXT constellation of 66 operational low-earth-orbit satellites. This means that FlightAware can now offer operators 100% global coverage, with aircraft updating their positions once a minute.

There are several advantages to using a low-earth orbit, rather than a geostationary orbit. Satellites in low-earth orbit are not only cheaper to launch but use up less energy than geostationary ones. The downside is that because they constantly moving faster than earth’s orbit there need to be more satellites in place to be able to give truly global coverage.

Having 100% global coverage means that for the first time, FlightAware can offer solutions that track aircraft on the ground as well as those flying. Through its web-based solution for aircraft operators, the company now offers full visibility to business aircraft operators from the moment the avionics on an aircraft are turned on, right the way through to when the plane has parked at its destination and the avionics are turned off.

By using space-based ADS-B tracking FlightAware says that it can pinpoint the location of any aircraft in the world to an area much smaller than the size of Manhattan.

FlightAware says that this situational awareness gives business aviation operators an added layer of security and comfort with their flights and surface tracking helps reduce the numbers of calls between people like catering companies and FBOs.

FlightAware Expands ADS-B Network and Airborne Coverage (AINonline)

FlightAware Expands ADS-B Network and Airborne Coverage

Flight tracking provider FlightAware (Booth 4959) is here at NBAA 2018 with two big coups. First, the company’s terrestrial ADS-B network expanded 35 percent in the first three quarters of 2018; and it now supports more than 19,000 terrestrial sites in nearly 190 countries. The company provides surface coverage at more than 1,000 airports and 2,000 FBOs and it has enabled its ADS-B receivers to capture mode-S weather data, including wind vector (direction and velocity) as well as outside air temperature and pressure. The mode-S update also captures autopilot settings and nav modes. FlightAware executives also announced here at the show that the company is now able to track aircraft anywhere in the world from engine start to shutdown, including taxi coverage. The company is calling its new ground-tracking program Ready-to-Taxi.

“Since most disruption happens while an aircraft is on the ground, there’s tremendous value in having insight into what’s going on before and after takeoff, particularly for our business aviation customers. That is why we designed the Ready-to-Taxi and surface location alert product,” said Daniel Baker, FlightAware founder and CEO.

The idea behind the ground tracking was to eliminate the excessive calls received by FBOs from flight departments, family, and executive staff asking for the status of aircraft, crew, and passengers. It also reduces the crew distraction in the cockpit during critical start-up, taxi and shutdown procedures (no more reams of text messages from the office).

GLOBAL ADS-B COVERAGE

The company’s second big announcement involved airborne coverage. Aireon space-based ADS-B wasn’t available to most business aviation operators. That ADS-B network covers the entire globe now, providing once-per-minute position updates, and FlightAware’s Global customers can now get it as part of their plan.

Combining Aireon space-based ADS-B with surface coverage from FlightAware’s sponsored ground network allows participating operators to track their aircraft from the moment the machine powers on at its point of departure to the second it parks at its destination FBO or airport.

“For business aviation operators, this improves operational safety while supporting reliability and optimization,” Baker said. “We have a big team here at our booth to show the product working. Our Global customers can add it on and can start getting alerts and as soon as they look down at their phones here at NBAA. It’s instant gratification,” he told AIN.

FlightAware is dedicated to complete trackability (with the option to opt out, of course). The company has been providing free ADS-B receivers to ground sites all over the globe in an effort to complete its mission, which Baker says is essentially there. “We’ll provide any FBO that needs it with a free ground station they can just plug in,” he said.

The company is keeping extensive stats on ADS-B equipage in the U.S. Data provided to AIN by FlightAware shows that the rate of 2020-compliant ADS-B equipage is ratcheting up, from 41 percent of the turbine and turboprop fleet equipped in November 2017 to 57 percent operating in August 2018. FlightAware breakout data shows, for example, that while 81 percent of flying Beechcraft Super King Air 300s appear to be 2020-compliant, only 27 percent of the flying Bombardier Learjet 31 fleet appears equipped. It seems the older the model, the less likely the aircraft is to be modified with ADS-B. Most of the fleet, however, does appear to be modernizing at an increasing rate. This is in contrast to FAA data showing that only 2,823 Part 121 U.S. scheduled air carrier aircraft and 1,101 international air carriers were equipped with compliant ADS-B out installations as of September 1.
