Passur Aerospace is set to incorporate automatic dependent surveillance - broadcast (ADS-B) into its Passur integrated traffic management (PITM) solution.

The new ADS-B system adds to PITM's the surveillance, customer and industry data feeds, which can be deployed for airborne and surface tracking, decision support and performance analysis.

ADS-B is a NextGen technology, established by the US Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) to completely modernise air traffic control systems.

According to Passur, the incorporation of ADS-B will enhance the array of surveillance technologies processed and incorporated on the PASSUR suite of solutions.

A PITM is a web-hosted integrated business intelligence platform that can address key constraints through the entire lifecycle of a flight to minimise fuel burn and other financial metrics, carbon emissions, schedule integrity and the passenger experience.

"The new ADS-B system adds to PITM's the surveillance, customer and industry data feeds, which can be deployed for airborne and surface tracking, decision support and performance analysis."

PITM builds on the company's technologies and includes a network of radar surveillance systems, installed throughout North America, integrated aviation databases with historical archives, predictive analytical algorithms and user-friendly decision support software.

Passur executive vice president Tom White said that the incorporation allows all flight and airspace tracking on a single, integrated, independent platform that is scalable worldwide.

"Customers want one-stop shopping, with integrated information and integrated solutions," added White.

Passar surveillance sensors are capable of processing ADS-B, Modes S, A and C radar, TCAS and other surveillance sources.

Powered by the integrated surveillance data feeds, Passur's modules include web tracker flight and airspace visualisation, diversion management, airport performance, system metrics, tarmac delay monitor, flight status and surface management.
