ADS-B is a novel surveillance concept using the Global
Positioning System (GPS) and a digital data-link compared to
the conventional surveillance system based on the radar system.
Aircraft IM refers to overall system that enables the improved
means for managing traffic flows and aircraft spacing. IM
applications consist of relative (flight-deck) and absolute
(ground-based) components. In this paper, preliminary results
of functional test based on Automatic Dependent Surveillance –
Broadcast (ADS-B) system for acquisition of the surveillance
data to implement the concept of the Interval Management (IM).
