Implementation of ADS-B data transmission in ULTRAS environment


ADSB stands for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast. A methodology employed by aircrafts to determine its position using satellite navigation or other sensors and periodically broadcast it for situational awareness. ADSB is capable of working at either on 1090 or 978 MHz bands and in Europe, it only operates at 1090 MHz. There are two kinds of ADSB; ADSB-IN which is similar to Air-to-Air communication and ADSB-OUT which is similar to Air-to-Ground communication (2 broad-casts/second occur).

Goals of the project

The goal of this project is to implement ADSB communication operating at 1090 MHz band in the ULTRAS environment. So far air-to-ground communication is implemented using OMNeT ++ discrete event simulator for ideal air-to-ground communication and with this project, we want to extend it to an ADSB communication system and evaluate the performance of the system.
