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, satellite-based surveillance, called ADS-C, is adopted by the airliners. Every 5-20 minutes, the aircraft sends a position report via satellite to a ground station and then forwarded to control towers and other users.
