WATM: First European Functional Airspace Block to research Aireon ADS-B surveillance


The air navigation service providers that comprise the FAB include Cyprus, Greece, Italy and Malta, whose mission is to streamline the flow of airspace over the Mediterranean area.

This agreement will allow Blue Med FAB ANSPs to evaluate the implementation of space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) capabilities and determine how those capabilities could improve air traffic surveillance over the Mediterranean airspace.
