Aireon Cites Global ‘Momentum,’ Works With Africa on ADS-B


Satellite surveillance provider Aireon signed an agreement with the Senegal-based Agency for the Security of Aviation Navigation in Africa and Madagascar (ASECNA) to assess its requirements for Aireon’s automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) system, potentially extending ADS-B surveillance to West Africa. ASECNA is the ATC provider for 17 African states; its airspace covers six flight information regions (FIRs).
