Aireon LLC announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Airways New Zealand, New Zealand's Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP), to collaborate on the investigation of the potential to deploy space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) services in New Zealand Domestic and South Pacific airspace. Airways New Zealand's goal is to provide safe, efficient and low-cost air navigation services to their airline customers, on a long-term, sustainable basis. Under the terms of this agreement, Airways New Zealand and Aireon will work together to investigate and potentially develop applicable regulations, standards and procedures for space-based ADS-B surveillance in the New Zealand Domestic Flight Information Region (FIR) and the oceanic Auckland FIR. The investigation will also involve a concept of operations for 100% surveillance coverage over remote, terrestrial and oceanic regions in both FIRs and international harmonization with neighboring ANSPs.
