DataBeacon and uAvionix collaborate to deliver cloud situational awareness with ADS-B data

DataBeacon and uAvionix plan to make available uAvionix’s FlightLine ADS-B data from cooperative aircraft as a sensor feed for DataBeacon’s Remeo5 airport and Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) Flight Information Display solution. The data provides enhanced situational awareness to air traffic service providers by visualizing the traffic in the airspace they manage, while mimimising their infrastructure investments. Reliable traffic feeds are a key enabler for airports and ANSP’s wishing to take advantage of new surveillance technologies.

The uAvionix FlightLine service provides validated ADS-B track data from a surveillance network of dual-band ADS-B receivers. FlightLine’s truSky validation score provides airports and ANSP’s confidence in the track data for airspace surveillance while the Romeo5 system displays system and connectivity status. The cloud-based system performs at low latencies with redundancy to ensure timely and reliable delivery of ADS-B data from cooperative aircraft, says the press release, enabling the combined Romeo5 and FlightLine surveillance to be offered as a data-as-a service for airports and ANSP’s.

The uAvionix truSky validation process inside FlightLine uses the network of multiple low-cost and low-profile deployed dual-frequency (1090MHz and 978MHz) ADS-B ground receivers to evaluate ADS-B signals transmitted from an aircraft. The system then instantly compares the received signals to confirm that the signal originated from the aircraft’s position. When enough sensors are available, truSky uses a number of methods to backwards calculate the aircraft’s position and compares it to the position contained within the ADS-B transmission. Using Doppler information, multilateral timing, and aircraft kinetics, the calculation produces a validation score on each aircraft to provide the confidence and safety margin required for use by airports and ANSP’s operators.

Compliant with UK CAA CAP670 regulation, Romeo5 is a low-complexity Flight Information Display (FID) for aerodromes and airports in the UK. Romeo5 has been built upon the foundation of DataBeacon’s Romeo5 tower and airport solution. The on-premise system can be deployed on a variety of computer operating systems and offers a cost-effective alternative to a traditional radar and surveillance data processing systems. Utilizing multiple data sources, including ADS-B, Romeo5 provides increased visibility to AFISOs and ATCOs.
