The steadily increasing air traffic and commercial space traffic in particular on transcontinental routes or suborbital operations requires to extend the controlled airspace to those regions not yet covered by ground based surveillance. An ADS-B system with a strong focus on space-based ADS-B can provide global and continuous air and space surveillance to enhance the operation of spacecraft and spaceplanes in transit through the US National Airspace System (NAS) and Single European Sky (SESAR) and above. Such a system can overcome the prevailing surveillance constraints in non-radar airspace (NRA). The limitations of the different ADS-B systems will be discussed within the requirements for international operations. They have an influence on the performance requirements for Sat based ADS-B to allow minimized separation in NRA together with an impact on prevailing processes and flight safety standards for the integration of commercial space flight operations in the Air Traffic Management (ATM). Further, integration of the data to the information exchange concept of the System Wide Information System (SWIM) is proposed. Using a SWIM based service, spacecraft and spaceplanes can be integrated safely in the NAS/SESAR and in the worldwide system. Also applications for spacecraft tracking close to low earth orbits (LEO) during launch and reentry operation will be possible.paper should begin with an abstract not exceeding 300 words. It should describe the contents of the paper, including the topics, the facts, and the conclusions. It should provide a self-contained summary that does not require the reader to have seen the main text in order to understand. The abstract does not have to be identical to the one submitted during the call for papers, but it must adhere to the same topic for discussion proposed earlier.
