Title: Revision of ADS-B Out Requirements 
Abstract: This rulemaking would create two exceptions to the requirement that all aircraft equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out) must transmit at all times. This rulemaking would remove 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. This rulemaking would also allow air traffic control to direct an operator to terminate transmission when it would jeopardize the safe functioning of ATC.
