I wonder what kind of military activities. I am searching but can't find anything.



Due to military activities, the TCAS and ADS-B surveillance may be unreliable in the airspace over Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, and extending approximately 200 nautical miles offshore, from 1 a.m. EDT (0500z) Sept. 2 until midnight EDT (0459z) on Oct. 1.

Pilots are advised that the traffic alert and TCAS may fail to establish tracks on nearby aircraft and may fail to receive traffic alerts (TA) or resolution advisories (RA). Operators should be aware that tracks may first appear within close proximity to their aircraft, and may immediately go into TA/RA status.

Pilots are advised to maintain an increased visual awareness in this area. If operators believe that an aircraft should have triggered an alert, the incident should be reported to air traffic control as soon as possible.

This is due to a late notice Department of Defense exercise, and NBAA has voiced its concern to the FAA that these sort of significant impact tests need much more notice to operators in the NAS.

Electronic Warfare exercises. The EW systems will interfere with TCAS and ADS-B frequencies.

That's what I figured..

I guess I'll be hearing more air traffic over my house for the next month..

Interesting. Just the big birds out playing, nothing new I presume?

Growlers, AWACS, and the like. Some playing with the new Aerostat over DC.

It would be wise to define TCAS and ADS-B surveillance for us all here on ATS..

Traffic Collision Avoidance System

Automatic Dependent Service - Broadcast

They pretty much help keep planes from colliding with each other.
