Brand-new system can track twice as many flights at once

The new ERAM system (En Route Automation Modernization) by the Department of Transportation will be able to track twice as many flights as once. It uses data comm, performance-based navigation, and automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast; performance-based navigation is already in use and has airplanes come down from cruising altitude to land with the engines idling. ADS-B tracks planes using satellites instead of the traditional radar systems. For flights in places where radar coverage is thin, the ADS-B will be able to track them. Data comm will reduce radio frequency traffic by implementing something like text messaging capabilities between pilots and air traffic controllers.

The above article is a summary. Please see the source article at Google News.
