Foundation of NAV Canada's Nationwide Deployment Of ADS-B
Sensis Corporation announced Wednesday that NAV CANADA has
expanded its contract for Sensis Automatic Dependent Surveillance -
Broadcast (ADS-B) ground-based transceivers to include deployment
along the Labrador and Baffin Island coasts of Canada for enhanced
surveillance of trans-Atlantic air traffic. This deployment is in
addition to the current deployment of Sensis ADS-B and Multistatic
Dependent Surveillance (MDS) at Vancouver Harbour, Fort St. John
and Hudson Bay.
"Providing ADS-B coverage in these areas is the next step in our
nation- wide deployment of the next generation of air traffic
surveillance," said John Crichton, President and CEO, NAV CANADA.
"Based on our experiences with Sensis ADS-B, we believe the Sensis
solution provides us with the best available accuracy, reliability
Along the northeast coast of Canada, Sensis ADS-B 1090
ground-based transceivers will generate aircraft position
information with sufficient accuracy and reliability to enable
reduced lateral separation.
"NAV CANADA's selection of Sensis ADS-B transceivers for the
next phase of their nation-wide ADS-B deployment further
demonstrates that our ADS-B technology meets current and future
surveillance demands of leading ANSPs," said Tony Lo Brutto, Vice
President and General Manager of Sensis Air Traffic Systems. "With
a high accuracy and update rate, Sensis ADS-B transceivers allow
the ANSPs to increase safety, reduce fuel costs and emissions as a
result of more flexible and efficient flight routes."
Sensis pioneered the development and implementation of ADS-B,
fielding the first operational ADS-B transceivers for both the Mode
S Extended Squitter (1090 ES) and UAT datalinks. The company touts
over 1,300 multilateration/ADS-B sensors deployed worldwide.
