The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) chartered the Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS–B) In Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) on June 30, 2010, to provide a forum for the U.S. aviation community to define a strategy for incorporating ADS–B In technologies into the National Airspace System (NAS).

The ARC supports ADS–B as the primary mechanism to provide future surveillance for ATC in the NAS and finds there are four primary recommendations on how the FAA should integrate ADS–B In into the NAS. First, the ARC finds, based on the current maturity of ADS–B In applications and uncertainties regarding the achievable benefits, there is not a NAS user community business case for near-term ADS–B In equipage. Therefore, at this time, the ARC does not support an equipage mandate. The ARC recommends the FAA demonstrate to the satisfaction of the user community that equipage benefits are both achievable and operationally implementable in a cost-effective manner.
