Introducing AerSale’s cost-saving solution to meet the FAA’s latest mandate for Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) Out

ADS-B Background

Countries worldwide are implementing a more accurate way of tracking aircraft. The FAA has been systematically upgrading its air traffic control (ATC) network with a new global positioning satellite (GPS) based aircraft tracking technology called Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) as part of its next generation ATC upgrade initiative - Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). ADS-B will eventually replace radar as the primary air traffic surveillance method for global ATC monitoring, and the FAA has published regulations mandating ADS-B for applicable aircraft operations. ADS-B will allow equipped aircraft and ground vehicles to broadcast their detailed identity and precise location to other aircraft and ATC. This capability is called ADS-B (Out), while an aircraft’s capability to receive this information is called ADS-B (In). Importantly, the FAA has mandated that all aircraft must be ADS-B (Out) equipped by January 1, 2020.

AerTrak Development

When we looked to upgrade AerSale’s aircraft to incorporate ADS-B (Out), the existing options were very expensive. Seeing an opportunity to prospectively save AerSale and our customers millions in ADS-B (Out) upgrade expenditures, AerSale’s engineered solutions group set out to develop our own ADS-B (Out) solutions. Successfully developed, tested, and certified for service, AerTrak is our advanced cost-saving alternative for compliance with the FAA’s requirement for ADS-B (Out) capability.
