ADS-B Standards

ICAO

Although ICAO seems to be the most authoritative organization, in fact, ADS-B equipment manufacturers and users mainly comply with the standards of American RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics) and European EUROCAE (The European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment)
.
RTCA

There are three main standards related to ADS-B:
The DO-242 series is Minimum Aviation System Performance Standards 
For Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B), mainly provides an overview of ADS-B system-level applications, but does not involve specific technical implementations, and is suitable for understanding the entire ADS-B system framework.
The DO-260 series is Minimum Operational Performance Standards for 1090 MHz Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B), contains the minimum operational performance requirements for ADS-B airborne equipment based on 1090MHz transmitters, mainly the data format description of DF17 and DF18 messages. Do-260 series can guide ADS-B transmitters and ADS-B receivers design, research and development.
The DO-282 series is Minimum Operational Performance Standards for Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B). Contains the minimum operational performance requirements for implementing ADS-B using UAT.

The ED-102 series is Minimum Operational Performance Specification for 1090 MHz Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B). ED-102 series is a European standard corresponding to U.S.A. RTCA DO260. ED-102 series contains the minimum operational performance specifications for ADS-B airborne equipment based on 1090MHz ADS-B transmitters, mainly the data format description of DF17 and DF18 messages. This can guide ADS-B transmitters and ADS-B receivers design, research and development.
The ED-129 series is Technical Specification for a 1090 MHz Extended Squitter ADS-B Ground System. It’s a standard that defines ADS-B ground systems, including the specification requirements for ADS-B ground stations, and can guide the design, research and development of ADS-B ground stations.
