Automatic dependent surveillance broacast

The ALBA-TROSS project aims at using satellite-based observation and systems together with automatic dependent surveillance broadcast signals in order to track complete flight paths of aircraft over oceans, provide data on the location of aircraft and on temperature, wind, and humidity experienced by the aircraft, and determine how useful all these data components are to key user-groups. Main users are weather forecasting services; Air Navigation Services Providers (ANSPs) around the world; disaster recovery sector; and the carbon trading and emissions monitoring community who will be mandated by law to track emissions from aircraft on international journey’s as part of a UN Initiative to monitor aircraft emissions. The service uses Earth Observation technologies such as SAR and visual observations, as well as weather satellites.
