Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Practices. Topic S10-21. Utilizing Airport Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Data

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) is a surveillance technology that relies on aircraft broadcasting their precise position, speed, altitude, and other information to ground stations and other aircraft. Airports can utilize ADS-B technology in several ways to enhance operations and improve overall safety and efficiency. ADS-B data also allows airports to have exact information on who is arriving and departing on their airport. Airports may use the ADS-B data in a variety of ways including tower justification, legislative funding support for infrastructure investment, ALP forecasting, support of new revenue generated sources/methods, and runway justification. The objective of this synthesis is to understand how airports use ADS-B data for decision making.
