ADS-B Receivers for Collision Avoidance
ADS - B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast) receivers provide greater accuracy for monitoring aircraft position than conventional radar surveillance; meaning that precise information can be transmitted to ground controllers & other aircraft in order to avoid air to air collision.
The uAvionix SkyEcho Portable ADS-B transceiver is one such device that provides pilots & air traffic controllers with 'pin point' positional information for collision avoidance.

The Benefits of ADS-B
Using satellite & transponder (GPS) technology ADS-B can provide the following benefits to pilots:
- Enhances flight safety & collision avoidance
- Enabling more aircraft to operate safely in the same airspace & reducing congestion
- Better routing to save time & fuel
- Provides the potential to have a 'live traffic' picture within the cockpit
