NanoCom ADS-B is a unique payload opportunity for small satellites

The Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) is a cooperative surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked. Usually it is ground stations and other airplanes receive the information, but when flying over large bodies of water, no receiver might be in the vicinity.

Today, most civil passenger aircraft are equipped with ADS-B transponders operating at 1090MHz transmitting information about aircraft ID, position and status.  On-board intelligent database allows recorded data to be queried and searched in many ways e.g. tracking specific flight IDs or providing regional overviews.

Main Features:

  • Flight-proven ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast) receiver for tracking aircrafts
  • Consists of a reconfigurable FPGA Cube Sat kit compatible board
  • Fits in less than a 0.3U volume in a nanosatellite / cubesat and uses less than 1 W of power
  • Reconfigurable FPGA (in flight)
  • Max ADS-B packages per second: 800
