Digital solutions for lower airspace

23 May 2019

CRTS R&D and Navigator, JSC presented ADS-B 1090ES infrastructure complex of both avionics and ground surveillance stations system for drones and general aviation integration into a single airspace on the margins of the XII HeliRussia expo.

ADS-B avionics and ground stations network tandem based on GLONASS/GPS technologies is aimed to be the core solution for unmanned aviation systems and general aviation safe operations.

“We are working hard, doing our best to create the digital airspace of tomorrow. Safe and efficient operations in the sky, especially in its lower part where traditional air navigation service is not available, is a challenge we need to solve with all the best experience and knowledge we have”, - said Sergei Baburov, Navigator JSC deputy director.

According to him, every air traffic participant must have equal rights to use the airspace, and designers should make effort to support them technically.

“ADS-B 1090ES is one of the crucial technologies we can propose. It provides up-to-date situation awareness of all air traffic participants real-time. To ensure the safety of joint flights, it is necessary to observe airspace and fulfil technological compatibility of the onboard equipment for mutual visibility and maneuvers support. The most complete and trustworthy data can be obtained in the independent cooperative surveillance system, which implies both equipping the aircraft with ADS-B 1090ES and/or Mode S transponders, as well as having a ground surveillance infrastructure capable to provide information to remotely piloted systems operators, manned aircraft pilots, and air traffic controllers”, - S. Baburov added.

The International Helicopter Industry Exhibition HeliRussia is the only international expo in Russia where companies from Russia and other countries present world achievements in every helicopter industry segment, from design and manufacture to operation.
The expo is held in accordance with the Russian Government decree and allows demonstrating military purpose products which raises the prestige of the event and makes it possible to exchange ideas and experience between Russian and foreign designers and manufacturers of helicopters, special equipment as well as navigation, communication and control systems. The organizer of the exhibition is the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
