Airservices Australia and the Indonesian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) have signed an agreement to exchange enhanced flight data for aircraft travelling between the two countries.

The agreement will allow air traffic controllers to precisely track aircraft up to 150 nautical miles inside the other country’s airspace using Automatic Dependant Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) technology.

The ADS-B technology is used to broadcast an aircraft’s call sign, position, altitude, velocity and other data, twice a second.

Data from four Australian ADS-B ground stations will be transmitted to Makassar Air Traffic Services Centre in Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Airservices Brisbane Air Traffic Services Centre will receive reciprocal data from four ADS-B ground stations in Indonesia.

Indonesia has installed 27 ADS-B ground stations across its archipelago, while Australia has 43 ADS-B receivers across the continent.
