FREMONT, CA: Vector Aerospace, a globally recognized Aerospace Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) provider makes an innovative approach by developing Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out solution for its AW139 Finmeccanica Helicopters, a medium twin rotorcraft. ADS-B Out enables improved safety and visibility by providing traffic information including altitude, speed, direction, and distances of the aircraft, ADS-B Out implementation brings both pilots and controllers to see the same radar picture.

ADS-B Out is well known for its airborne safety features- collision is avoided in the mid air by bringing in field visibility with real-time information of the activities going on in the air like the incoming flights, the co-ordinate position of individual flight and many more.
