ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast)
ADS-B is a tracking technology for manned and unmanned aircraft that has been introduced as a potential replacement for secondary surveillance radar in air traffic control, as well as a method for integration of drones into manned airspace and a component of UTM (unmanned traffic management) systems.
Satellite as a Service
Aircraft traversing uncontrolled airspace, such as the Seven Seas, cannot reach the ground station using its ADS-B-transponder. The reason is simply that the distance between the aircraft and the ground receiver is too long. Instead, a satellite-based service called ADS-Cis adopted by the airliners. Every 5-20 minutes, the aircraft sends a (aircraft position) report via satellite to a ground station and then forwarded to control towers and other users.
Skysense is operating ground stations across the globe fetching aircraft position reports from all satellites managing ADS-C. Our offering is simple and hassle-free. We send you the data in real-time over a secure IP-link. Contact us to discuss how we can help your business harness data from ADS-C.
