The application of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) in the training for air traffic controller is investigated in the presented work. ADS-B is a surveillance technology for tracking aircraft as part of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Compared to radar, ADS-B system has many advantages such as lower deployment cost, higher accuracy and more frequently update. As surveillance method transits from radar surveillance to ADS-B surveillance, the training for air traffic controller should incorporate ADS-B system correspondingly. In the presented work, the features of ADS-B are introduced as well as the structure of ADS-B system is illustrated, and a novel framework for training air traffic controller with ADS-B system is proposed. It is seen that air traffic controller can be trained with lower cost, shorter period and more flexibility compared to that with radar surveillance.
