CNS/ATM resource guide
This resource guide has been developed by CASA as a guide to operating in Australian airspace, with particular emphasis on satellite-based navigation and surveillance. This is part of the CNS/ATM resource kit designed for both self- and class-based instruction, providing a foundation level of knowledge for the aviation community.
How to use this resource guide
This guide is part of a resource kit that also includes:
- a practical workbook

We encourage members of the aviation community to use the kit as part of their individual professional development. Organisations are encouraged to use it to develop training packages or self-contained sessions.
Additional resources and information
CNS/ATM describes a new approach to integrated air traffic management (ATM) in the satellite age.
It brings together voice, satellite and digital Communications, performance-based Navigation (PBN) and automatic dependent Surveillance broadcast (ADS-B), as well as ground-based systems such as radar and fixed navaids.
This chapter provides an introduction to CNS/ATM, explores its benefits and components and outlines the relevant rules and regulations.
