ADS-B Vehicle Tracking System


At airports worldwide, ground vehicle incursion into critical safety areas is rising. Vektor minimizes the risk by using a fully standards compliant, vehicle-mounted ADS-B transmitter that continually broadcasts a vehicle’s location. The transmitter can be permanently or magnetically mounted to all airside vehicles, including tugs, fire, rescue and de-icing equipment. Each vehicle is clearly and uniquely identified, providing an essential addition to any surface movement guidance and control system.

The design of Vektor ensures easy integration and interoperability with any multilateralization or ADS-B system based on ICAO Annex 10 defined Mode S Extended Squitter datalink.
