TCAS and ADS-B to be Unreliable on US East Coast in September

Due to a late notice Department of Defense exercise, 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).

So the military aircraft are going into the same category as drones? If you can't hear me, I must not be there does not sound particularly reassuring.

Especially after the F16 dismantled the father son team a couple of months ago!

This sort of stuff from big brother is unacceptable and yet another example that they think they have outgrown "We the people"! And in said airspace I will turn it off, as "unreliable" is worse than "not there".

By unreliable I suppose they mean military aircraft are going to be "silent" and not visible?

Gotta admit I hadn't thought of it in that way since they can't turn off TCAS. But does that mean they will turn off the transponders for all military AC, and if so how will they track them?

Had a friend that was a DAL captain and I was going to track him one day on an ATL/LAX turn which normally would bring him right over the top of me. I watched his track on FA and all seemed normal then all of a sudden he went South and on out. Talked to him later and he said center changed him up after he was airborne due to some last minute military stuff. They need to be under control just like everybody else until they get up out of our airspace. As bentwing is saying, they seem, like the rest of the government, to have forgotten We The People.

When I was instructing, we had a certain MOA that carried alot of traffic. That's OK. What wasn't OK was the fighters enroute to or exiting from the MOA at anywhere from 500-1,500 msl doing 400 knots! And by enroute I mean 20-30 miles OUTSIDE. Complaints fell on deaf ears.
Has been reported a few days ago.

There's more to this story -- wonder if we will ever know the real reasons.

Florida has some pretty congestited airspace so this should be interesting. Let's see who remembers to look out the window in order to see and avoid.

Not good no reason for it as should be able to continue even with that activity. Puts many in bad positions they shouldn't be.
