The Selex ES Inc Model 3300 is a high performance Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) ground station for en route, terminal and airport surveillance applications that has been designed to support both U.S. and international installations. Due to its modular design, the radio set can be configured to support both the 1090 MHz Extended Squitter (ES) and 978 MHz Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) data-links for the U.S. market (6U form factor) and can be scaled to support only the 1090ES domain for international markets (3U form factor). This allows the unit to obtain identification, position, altitude, velocity, and other airborne derived data using either data link.
The Model 3300 is compliant with international minimum operating performance standards and capable of supporting both ADS-B as well as Wide-Area Multilateration (WAM) installations with a straightforward configuration file change. When configured for the WAM application, the Model 3300 provides high performance and accurate all-weather surveillance for airport and wide area applications. It combines outstanding advanced sensor design and innovative target processing in a flexible and redundant architecture to identify cooperative detection of targets on the airport surface or on Terminal Maneuvering Area (TMA)/en-route airspace.
The Selex ES Inc Model 3300 is a small form factor system that is highly capable and feature-rich at an affordable price. The Model 3300 can be integrated with other systems for cooperative ATC surveillance, expanded or tailored to meet specific customer needs, and support the addition of future capabilities and geographical system expansion after the original system install.
Selex ES Inc supplies the Model 3300 to Exelis for the US Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) program. More than 500 stations have been sold and are being deployed in the US National Airspace System (NAS).
