Effect of ADS-B on Near Mid-Air Collision Rates of GA Aircraft

The introduction and use of ADS-B in general aviation aircraft and the establishment of supporting GBTS nationally will result in a significant and predictable decrease in the number of aircraft near mid-air collisions at uncontrolled, non-towered airfields nationally. The implications of the outcome of this research may be assessed for application to general aviation activity nationally. Implications regarding the effectiveness of ADS-B to decrease near mid-air collisions nationally may also be made.
