About ADS-B Tracking

ADS-B Receiver rack - how to

ADS-B (Automatic Dependant Surveillance – Broadcast) is the worldwide standard for aircraft position and flight data transmissions. From this year ADS-B will be a mandatory aircraft equipment in many regions of the world. Also ADS-B is increasingly used by helicopters, light aircraft, gliders, drones and airport vehicles. With our affordable 19″, 10″ and 8.5″ PlaneTRack ADS-B receivers our corporate customers can obtain valuable tracking information for their individual needs:

  • Airfield/Apron/Terminal area situational awareness
  • Low flying operations (helicopter, offshore and onshore wind farms, oil and gas platforms)
  • Rescue operations in mountainous areas, valley surveillance
  • Drone tracking
  • Airport vicinity noise monitoring
  • Flying school student tracking
  • Defense and Electronic Intelligence
  • Combined vessel/helicopter operations
  • Calibration of navaid equipment

PlaneTRack ADS-B receiving systems are available in both 19″ standard-rack and 10″ mini-rack inserts. They are certified according to European CE regulations (EMC, VDE, EN60950-1) and compliant with ICAO Annex 10, Doc 9871, RTCA DO-260/A/B, Eurocae ED102/A and ED-129.

Options are available for eg. DC power supply, extended temperature range, SNMP control, airborne vibration/shock compliance (DO-160, MIL-STD810), extended warranty, component exchange services and others.

More Industrial ADS-B Applications

The latest ADS-B standard (version 2) delivers more than 90 individual data items from airplanes in flight. A variety of interesting new applications can be created with these data, e.g.:

  • Upper and terminal winds and OAT calculation
  • Vertical and horizontal approach path monitoring
  • ATS fee calculation and collection
  • Automatic landing and takeoff recording
  • Restricted airspace intrusion control
