Title: ●Revision of ADS-B Out Requirements 
Abstract:

The purpose of this rulemaking is to remove the requirement that all aircraft equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out) must transmit at all times. This rule provides an exception to ADS-B requirements, removing the transmission requirement for certain operations carried out in the interest of national security. The changes would provide relief to those government agencies that operate aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out but require the ability to terminate the transmission signal when conducting national security, sensitive, intelligence, and law enforcement missions that could be compromised by the requirement to transmit flight information over non-encrypted signals.
