Abstract

See full text

A small aircraft includes a computer system configured to determine its own location, establish a datalink with a ground station and send the location information to the ground station in an ADS-B compliant format. The ground station then transmits the ADS-B compliant small aircraft information as a virtual ADS-B signal from the small aircraft to air traffic controllers and local ADS-B capable aircraft. Likewise, a ground station incorporates a virtual ADS-B In function to receive ADS-B information in a non-ADS-B datalink channel. The ground station performs ADS-B In applications without the burden of the small aircraft carrying the actual ADS-B equipment.
