Space-Based ADS-B Development Workshop
ROMATSA hosted in Bucharest, Romania, on the 3rd of May 2018, a Space-based ADS-B Workshop with its DANUBE FAB partner, BULATSA and with Aireon. The workshop was a good opportunity for ROMATSA and BULATSA to get first hand input, work progress status and critical operational insight from Aireon, as it is already deploying its space global Air Traffic Surveillance System using a Space-based ADS-B network that makes possible to extend the visibility across the entire planet.
The workshop was moderated by Michele Carandente, Aireon Regional Director, EMEA and was attended by technical directors and key experts from both ROMATSA and BULATSA, who obtained relevant technical and operational information regarding the project implementation that would help establishing the opportunity of implementing this project.
Topics such as the overview and development update of Aireon, results and performances of the system, safety and cyber security aspects, EASA certification and compliance matrix, as well as the project’s way forward were addressed. The workshop also reached a number of key aspects that may become drivers for DANUBE FAB in case a decision to join the project will be taken.
