Canada Expands Sensis ADS-B Contract To Include East Coast Deployment

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 and flexibility."

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.
