If you have had the opportunity to visit my Reading Room (Academic tab), you know MIT and Avidyne have been playing a significant role in the development of  ADS-B for some time.  Now with this grant, work on ‘defining the algorithms for conflict detection, and also for reducing false alerts and nuisance alerts in high-traffic airport and approach environments for aircraft using ADS-B’ will progress.  Here are some recent articles related to this announcement:
