By 2009, Nav Canada plans to install ADS-B ground stations around Hudson Bay, which straddles high-latitude airline flight paths between Asia, North America and Europe but lacks radar coverage. Currently, aircraft overflying the area must observe “procedural” separations that keep them approximately 80 miles apart, compared with five miles under radar monitoring. ADS-B will be extended to cover areas across northern Canada that lack radar coverage.
