Title
(EN) SATELLITE BASED AIRCRAFT TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE CONTROLE DU TRAFIC AERIEN PAR SATELLITE
Abstract
(EN)
A satellite based air traffic control (ATC) system includes an aircraft unit (18) on an aircraft and an ATC facility (48). The aircraft unit (18) includes an AARTS processor (28), GPS receivers (20, 22), a comparator (24) for comparing the GPS data, a two-way radio (44) and a transmitter (32) and receiver (33) for communicating information over a data link with the ATC facility (48). The ATC facility (18) includes an ATC computer (66), a two-way radio (52), a display (70) for displaying aircraft and a transmitter (61) and receiver (60) for communicating information and data over the data link. The aircraft transmits aircraft identification information, GPS data, aircraft status information and a transmit detect code to the ATC facility (48) to allow the ATC to track the aircraft and identify the aircraft communicating on two-way radio (52). The traffic control system and a flight control system utilizing GPS may be used for aircraft in the air and on ground and may be used for ships, boats, automobiles, trains or railroads.

Un système de contrôle du trafic aérien (ATC) par satellite comporte une unité d'aéronef (18) sur un aéronef et une installation de contrôle du trafic aérien par satellite (48). Le dispositif d'aéronef (18) comporte un processeur du mouvement des aéronefs et de détection civile (AARTS), des récepteurs à système de positionnement global GPS (20, 22), un comparateur (24) conçu pour comparer les données GPS, une radio à deux voies (44), un émetteur (32) et un récepteur (33) pour communiquer les informations par l'intermédiaire d'une liaison de données avec l'installation ATC (48). L'installation ATC (18) comporte un ordinateur ATC (66), une radio à deux voies (52), un affichage (70) pour visualiser l'aéronef, un émetteur (61) et un récepteur (60) pour communiquer les informations et les données par l'intermédiaire de la liaison de données. L'aéronef émet les informations d'identification de l'aéronef, des données GPS, des informations sur l'état de l'aéronef, et un code de détection de transmission à l'installation ATC (48) de manière à permettre à cette dernière de suivre et d'identifier un aéronef communiquant sur une radio à deux voies (52). Le système de commande du trafic aérien et un système de commande de vol à système GPS peuvent être utilisés pour un aéronef en vol ou sur terre, ainsi que pour les bateaux, les vaisseaux, les automobiles, les trains ou les chemins de fer.
