Peer Reviewed

Abstract: This paper addresses the requirement for an automatic dependent surveillance (ADS) function in oceanic areas. It includes a description of the present oceanic air traffic control (ATC) system and its functional limitations. It also provides a historical perspective on the National Airspace System, as well as background on oceanic ATC modernization and improvements leading to development of the FAA ADS program. Also included are a brief overview of the Oceanic Display and Planning System (ODAPS), which is the baseline for ADS, and a synopsis of the ADS function, program, demonstrations, implementation, and resulting benefits.
