The Federal Aviation Administration says its Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast system will be completed next year, a year behind schedule. ADS-B is a GPS-based system that is expected to replace the current radar air traffic control system. "Ultimately, ADS-B will be an enabler of modernized air traffic control procedures that will provide very significant increases in the efficiency and capacity of NAS terminal airspace," said John Kefaliotis, vice president of Next Generation Air Transportation at ITT.
