The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Mongolia is set to pass a milestone in its nationwide automatic dependent surveillance – broadcast (ADS-B) project on 21 June, when the technology will be implemented for control separation throughout Mongolian airspace.
In June 2013, CAA Mongolia awarded Indra a contract to deploy ADS-B systems throughout the country, including 10 ground stations, to strengthen airspace surveillance capacity and complement in-service Indra Mode S monopulse secondary surveillance radar (MSSR).
By 2021, all aircraft operating in upper airspace over Mongolia will be required to carry an ADS-B transponder (today, 97% of overflights are thus equipped).
As it expects en route traffic to increase in the near-to-medium term, CAA Mongolia is also building a new control centre to include advanced technology.
