  • 5-2-22. INOPERATIVE OR MALFUNCTIONING ADS-B TRANSMITTER

    1. When an aircraft's ADS-B transmitter appears to be inoperative or malfunctioning, notify the OS/CIC of the aircraft call sign, location, and time of the occurrence (UTC). Except for DoD aircraft or those provided for in paragraph 5-2-24, inform the pilot.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • YOUR ADS-B TRANSMITTER APPEARS TO BE INOPERATIVE/MALFUNCTIONING.

      NOTE: FAA Flight Standards Service, Safety Standards Division (AFS) is responsible for working with aircraft operators to correct ADS-B malfunctions. The intent of this paragraph is to capture ADS-B anomalies observed by ATC, such as errors in the data (other than Call Sign Mis-Match events, which are detected and reported to AFS automatically) or instances when civil ADS-B transmissions would normally be expected but are not received (e.g., ADS-B transmissions were observed on a previous flight leg).

    2. If a malfunctioning ADS-B transmitter is jeopardizing the safe execution of air traffic control functions, instruct the aircraft to stop ADS-B transmissions, and notify the OS/CIC.
      • PHRASEOLOGY
      • STOP ADS-B TRANSMISSIONS, AND IF ABLE, SQUAWK THREE/ALFA (code).

      NOTE: Not all aircraft have a capability to disengage the ADS-B transmitter independently from the beacon code squawk.
