PURPOSE AND SCOPE
This Technical Specification defines the minimum technical specification for a 1090 MHz Extended Squitter (1090 ES) Ground Station. The Ground Station is part of an Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) system providing airspace situational awareness to air traffic controllers and other users in non-radar airspaces (NRA) in accordance with ED-126 [REF19] within the European Air Navigation Region.
The Technical Specification for a complete 1090 MHz Extended Squitter ADS-B Ground System is currently under development and will be published as EUROCAE Document ED-129B.
This Technical Specification for 1090 ES Ground Stations is designed to ensure that Ground Station equipment certified to it will be compatible with aircraft Mode S transponder equipment certified to ED-102/DO-260, DO-260A or ED-102A/DO-260B [REF24, REF25, REF19] and capable of satisfying the requirements specified in ED-126 [REF19].
