Flight Safety Foundation has released the study "Benefits Analysis of Space-Based ADS-B", investigating the application of ADS-B networks to meet the predicted safety challenges of air traffic growth over the next 20 years. The study also assesses how space-based ADS-B can enhance the world's aviation network by introducing a near-real-time flight surveillance capability that provides 100 percent global coverage.
