Global air traffic is increasing at an exponential pace. Within the next decade, the amount of passengers that take to the already crowded skies will double. More passengers mean more planes. Air travel, however, is already plagued with delays.
Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) are responsible for not only the safe passage of the ever expanding grid of air traffic, but the efficiency as well. ANSPs have come to the undeniable realization that radar simply cannot keep up with the growing demand.
In an effort to increase efficiency, streamline operations, minimize infrastructure costs and, most importantly, improve safety, more and more ANSPs are turning away from traditional radars and looking toward new technologies: multilateration and ADS-B.
While there is general consensus in the air traffic management industry that ADS-B is the accepted long-term surveillance solution, wide-scale implementations are more than 15 years away.

Multilateration addresses these obstacles today.
But what exactly is multilateration? How can it aid in the transition to ADS-B? Can it offer backup capabilities to ADS-B in the long term? What are its benefits? What about certification? Most importantly, how can it benefit your organization?
This book is aimed at answering these and other questions in the most straightforward fashion to date.
