Abstract
The Phase I verified ADS-B-ER feasibility-based on compatibility with the ADS-B operational standards and design specs, bandwidth and the iPAD EFB capability for performing the trajectory computations for avoiding hazardous weather, terrain, traffic and restricted airspace. We then assured that the?ER software can interface these waypoints to large variety of existing GA analog and digital auto pilots (approximately 100,000 GA airplanes are equipped with autopilots). The Phase I work demonstrated feasibility by carefully evaluating candidate hardware options. The overall target is a decisive enabler for GA NextGen ops as well as for improved levels of GA safety.
