Victor’s Vectors: One step closer to Aviation’s NextGen
The House of Representatives recently passed the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2009. This is a large step in the right direction for the funding of the FAA and the Next Generation Air Traffic Control System (NextGen). Garmin has been following this closely along with the rest of the aviation community, and we've been on the leading edge of NextGen since the beginning of Capstone project in Alaska. If you’re not familiar with the Capstone project it is centered on the service called ADS-B, which is short for Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast. ADS-B is an enabling technology for “free flight” — a FAA vision aimed
at improving the safe flow of commercial and non-commercial aircraft
within the U.S. air-traffic environment. ADS-B provides real time traffic and weather directly to the cockpit of any aircraft equipped with a receiver like Garmin’s GDL 90, aviation's first certified datalink transceiver. The GDL 90 interfaces with the GMX 200, and when the two systems are working together pilots can "see" aircraft traffic with much more precision than with existing ground-based radar system.
