SAFETY ANALYSIS OF AN APPROACH SPACING FOR INSTRUMENT APPROACHES (ASIA) APPLICATION USING ADS-B

New techniques for evaluating the safety of aircraft surveillance applications, using the flight deck application of Approach Spacing for Instrument Approaches (ASIA), are reported. The article focuses on the safety of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) systems used for in-trail approach spacing. It analyzes operational procedures, conducts a hazard analysis, and treats the identified hazards in a fault-tree analysis. It identifies the value in the fault tree analysis at which the probability of hazardous information being produced exceeds tolerances set by regulators, equivalent to the system integrity. This tolerance level is also one where avionics manufacturers consider reasonable to achieve within cost constraints. If the benefits of the reduced spacing offered by approach spacing are great enough to justify their cost, users will consider implementing them.
