ED-102B/DO-260C APPROVED FOR PUBLICATION

ED-102B/DO-260C was approved for publication by EUROCAE and RTCA. The document contains Minimum Operational Performance Standards (MOPS) for airborne equipment for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and Traffic Information Service – Broadcast (TIS-B) utilizing 1090 MHz Mode-S Extended Squitter. 

ED-102B/DO-260C is the emerging standard for future ADS-B equipment, offering significant improvements in bandwidth and new data items. Colloquially referred to as ADS-B Version 3, it is designed to be backwards compatible with ED-102A/DO-260B, which is the standard required for implementation under SPI IR (ADS-B Version 2).
