TCAS, ADS-B Unreliable in Southeast U.S. Beginning Sept. 2

8 posts in this topic

Here's an excerpt from the article on the National Business Aviation Association posted on September 1, 2015.....

"Due to military activities, the TCAS and ADS-B surveillance may be unreliable in the airspace over Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, and extending approximately 200 nautical miles offshore, from 1 a.m. EDT (0500z) Sept. 2 until midnight EDT (0459z) on Oct. 1." https://www.nbaa.org/ops/airspace/regional/20150901-tcas-adsb-unreliable-in-southeast-united-states-beginning-september-2.php

(op's link)  THE TRAFFIC ALERT AND COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM (TCAS) AND AUTOMATIC DEPENDENT SYSTEM BROADCAST (ADS-B) SURVEILLANCE MAY BE UNRELIABLE IN THE AIRSPACE OVER THE STATES OF VIRGINIA, NORTH CAROLINA, SOUTH CAROLINA, GEORGIA, AND FLORIDA, AND EXTENDING APPROXIMATELY 200NM OFFSHORE. PILOTS ARE ADVISED THAT THE TRAFFIC ALERT AND COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM (TCAS) MAY FAIL TO ESTABLISH TRACKS ON NEARBY AIRCRAFT AND MAY FAIL TO RECEIVE TRAFFIC ALERTS (TA) AND/OR RESOLUTION ADVISORIES (RA). FURTHER, PILOTS ARE ADVISED THAT TRACKS MAY FIRST APPEAR WITHIN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THEIR AIRCRAFT AND MAY IMMEDIATELY GO INTO TA/RA STATUS. FALSE ALERTS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE GENERATED BY THIS MILITARY ACTIVITY AND ANY ALERTS SHALL BE TREATED AS REAL

wow! In other words, your on your own..

Still a red alert:

The U.S. military has shut down the same aircraft reconnaissance systems that they shut down before 911 as part of a military training exercise, just like before 911, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER SINCE 911. In addition to this, they did it without announcement and have aircraft controllers very upset for giving practically no notice, when they request months forewarning to such things happening.

 

 

This shut down will leave air traffic controllers blind to all incoming threats (via failure to identify what planes are on radar) 200 miles out over the ocean across the entire Eastern seaboard down to Florida, and all airspace above five Eastern states, in addition to Florida. Considering the time of this particular month and the current world events status, I think that is a little bit spooky. HEADS UP!

I don't make predictions here, but this is quite the eye opener.

SETUP OF NEW 911 NOW ESTABLISHED

Aircraft identification early warning system going offline until October 1!

 

 

Think they won't do it again? Where is flight 370 anyway?

WASHINGTON, DC (INTELLIHUB) - Air Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems (TCAS) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcasts (ADS-B) will be down or spotty in 5 states, extending up to 200 miles off shore of the Eastern Seaboard, until Oct. 1, according to a NOTAM issued Sept. 1 by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The NOTAM reads in part:

Due to military activities, the TCAS and ADS-B surveillance may be unreliable in the airspace over Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, and extending approximately 200 nautical miles offshore, from 1 a.m. EDT (0500z) Sept. 2 until midnight EDT (0459z) on Oct. 1.

Pilots are advised that the traffic alert and TCAS may fail to establish tracks on nearby aircraft and may fail to receive traffic alerts (TA) or resolution advisories (RA). Operators should be aware that tracks may first appear within close proximity to their aircraft, and may immediately go into TA/RA status.

Pilots are advised to maintain an increased visual awareness in this area. If operators believe that an aircraft should have triggered an alert, the incident should be reported to air traffic control as soon as possible.

Here is the key line that this might be a setup for a new 911:

This is due to a late notice Department of Defense exercise, and NBAA has voiced its concern to the FAA that these sort of significant impact tests need much more notice to operators in the NAS.

This is immensely concerning not only for the safety of passengers and staff aboard flights navigating the affected areas but for the security of our country as well. In fact the last time we saw similar systems go down was during the attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon, Sept. 11, 2001.

See original report on Intellihub

My comment: No warning anywhere in America's officially declared international waters off the East coast and Florida? Hmm, the story line then: MH-370 took off from Morocco and suicide crashed in Miami. Boeing just proved the flaperon found was not from flight 370. So it is still out there, waiting for action . . . . . that hoax shooting that never happened on the train in France "proved" that Moroccans are bad . . . . . just on time.

Saudi Nationals were able to come and go as they please while everyone else was grounded after 9/11.  The TSA said oh yeah there were some people we let do whatever they wanted.  That was after some public outcry, they didn't just cough that up. 

Flightradar24 is showing yellow (ADS-B) planes flying all around the east coast, so it's not totally down. 

Does anybody have a cheap SDR that can listen in on those areas to ADS-B transmissions?
