ADS-B training held


The Southwest Air Traffic Management Bureau under the Civil Aviation Administration of China, together with the Air Traffic Management Department and Training Center, held a training program on the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) for the southwest area on August 1. More than 200 representatives from ATMB in Tibet, Yunnan, Guizhou, Chongqing and Southwest participated in the training. ADS-B is an aircraft operation surveillance technology based on satellite location and ground/air data link communication. The technology is used especially in areas without radar coverage. ADS-B is cheaper, but offers strong surveillance capability and a high accuracy rate. It has a wide application for air traffic service in high-density flight areas. China is gradually incorporating ADS-B technology to manage its tight airspace, a problem which has affected the civil aviation industry.
