Aireon has deployed the first global air traffic surveillance system using a space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) network that meets the strict, real-time Air Traffic Service (ATS) surveillance requirements for separation services, anywhere in the world.
Since 2011, Aireon has partnered with investors and regulators from around the world to develop this unique service. In partnership with leading Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) from around the world, like NAV CANADA, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), Enav, NATS and Naviair, as well as Iridium Communications, Aireon is providing a global, real-time, space-based air traffic surveillance system available to all aviation stakeholders.
After years of research and development, the system went live in April 2019 and immediately offered the highest fidelity data available to the industry. Aireon received official approval by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), making it the first ever certified provider of aircraft surveillance-as-a-service. As Aireon continues
to publish standards and performance metrics, the Aireon service is consistently outperforming the established benchmarks in some of
the world’s largest and busiest airspaces.
Aireon’s launch signaled that the aviation industry is joining the rest of the 21st century, where real-time connectivity is relied upon for doing business.
Improving Safety
The Aireon service provides enhanced operational safety for 100 percent of ADS-B equipped aircraft in real time. Aireon has seen a sharp increase in safety benefits through customers’ operational improvements and global benchmarks.
Enhancing Efficiency
Aireon allows customers to plan and fly more optimal routes, which decreases fuel consumption and
creates consumer value in the form of lower
prices. With Aireon, procedural routes—which have long been the industry’s solution to flying through previously unsurveilled regions—will become a thing of the past.
Delivering Global Value
Aireon delivers value to its customers on a global scale. Already, Aireon has enabled partners like FlightAware and Airbus to deliver data to aircraft operators and continue to actively expand.
Aireon continues to rapidly grow its customer base and expand the possibilities of use for its data. This growth is driven by the fact that Aireon provides the first-ever global set of historic and real-time ATC- grade data on aircraft movements. This technology has the potential to transform the way they approach safety, efficiency, separation services and overall customer experience.
Aireon’s services empower partnering organizations in the aviation industry in an understandable
and readable format, as well as deliver derived information from the data. This capability provides partners with the only independent, certified, surveillance-quality, aircraft position data with global coverage. Partners gain full transparency into the Aireon-owned ADS-B system to guarantee traceability of highly accurate, highly reliable flight position information, which reduces the need to manage multiple, disparate data sources.
This data now goes beyond ATS surveillance and Aireon’s partners can utilize this unparalleled and unprecedented information to support their business and safety processes. Through advanced data fusion methodologies and the integration of Aireon’s data with other contextual data, Aireon presents the only ATS surveillance-quality and complete flight position source available.
