    FAA approves UPS-tested satellite system - Business First

    The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration Monday approved the nationwide deployment of the NextGen satellite system, an air traffic control system that monitors aircraft by satellite rather than radar.

    The system, also known as Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast, or ADS-B, had been beta tested by Louisville-based UPS Airlines since 1996.
