Aireon Partners with Flightaware to Launch GlobalBeacon for Global Flight Tracking
Sep 21 16
Aireon LLC and FlightAware have partnered to launch GlobalBeacon, a solution providing airlines with 100% global flight tracking. GlobalBeacon is designed to ensure airlines are in compliance with Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System (GADSS) recommendations and requirements. GlobalBeacon will provide airlines with minute-by-minute, global tracking of automatic dependent surveillance broadcast (ADS-B) equipped aircraft. GlobalBeacon's combines data from Aireon's space-based ADS-B aircraft surveillance network, due to be operational by 2018, and FlightAware's flight tracking web interface and worldwide flight tracking data -- including origin, destination, flight plan route, position and estimated time of arrival. When implemented, airlines will be equipped to meet or exceed GADSS requirements and recommendations, with no new avionics required.

DCA provides air traffic control, air navigation, aeronautical information and aeronautical telecommunication for international and domestic aircraft inside the Yangon Flight Information Region (FIR).

Aireon LLC has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with two leading Russian organizations, JSC AZIMUT and JSC INFOCOM-Avia, to evaluate the benefits of deploying space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) in Russian Federation airspace. Analyses will be performed on how space-based ADS-B will enhance air traffic monitoring, support air traffic management and improve airline and airport operations. Aireon's space-based ADS-B service will be operational in 2018, shortly after the completion of the Iridium NEXT constellation. The first Iridium NEXT launch is scheduled for September 12, 2016, when the company will launch 10 satellites using a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket out of the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Aireon's launch customers include NAV CANADA, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), Naviair, ENAV, NATS, South Africa's Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS), Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Curacao's DC-ANSP.
