An advanced system providing the following applications: enhanced air traffic services in non radar airspace, air traffic control surveillance in radar airspace and on the airport surface.
ADS-B system is a highly flexible and high performance turnkey solution with different configurations to satisfy customer requirements.
Our ADS-B ground station is an equipment which fuses the benefits of the Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast with the best cost-performance ratio in the market. This system has been entirely developed and manufactured by Indra in compliance with the most exigent and recognized standards.
The equipment is designed to fulfil and/or exceed requirements, inputs and recommendations developed by FAA/RTCA ICAO, EUROCONTROL, and EUROCAE for the ADS-B systems as part of an air traffic control system, and can be adapted easily to meet the increased air traffic requirements that will occur in the future.
ADS-B ground station consists of an Antenna that receives RF signals, an ADS-B receiver and processor unit that receives, processes and decodes ADS-B information and an ADS-B processor that process correlates and creates ASTERIX reports to be sent to the final ATM system. The Indra ADS-B system is superior to all other marketed systems because it has three independent reception channels. In heavy load environments this translates into better performances at longer distances.
Due to the flexibility of the Indra ADS-B system this can be configured from the simplest ADS-B receiver with a unique omni antenna with a single processing unit to a fully redundant system including three elements, sectorized antennas and redundant process chain. Indra ADS-B is based on COTS elements and includes BITE and CMS functionalities that detect events and store all relevant data. As recommended by related standards, ADS-B system CMS functionalities use the SNMP protocol.
