Aeronautical Surveillance Manual
|Publication Date:||1 January 2020|
Air traffic is growing at a significant rate and at the same time, there are increasing demands for more operating flexibility to improve aircraft efficiency and to reduce the impact of air travel on the environment. Aeronautical surveillance systems are major elements of modern air navigation infrastructure required to safely manage increasing levels and complexity of air traffic.
This manual has been produced by the Aeronautical Surveillance Panel (ASP) as a reference document consolidating the updated guidance material previously published in other manuals with new material covering more recent or emerging techniques. The chapters provide the reader with a basic understanding of various systems and how they are used for air traffic surveillance while the appendices contain detailed information on some specific systems and related topics.
Comments on this manual from States and other parties outside ICAO concerned with surveillance system development and provision of services would be appreciated and should be addressed to:
