Rockwell Collins, SITA Roll Out New Tracking Options For Airlines


The drive for cost-effective near-term flight-tracking solutions ahead of forthcoming international standards and rules has the airline industry’s two main cockpit data services providers reinventing and evolving legacy products and services to suit. Rockwell Collins and SITA have both developed new packages that will allow airlines in many cases to cost-effectively transition from what had been passive, infrequent flight following to active tracking. Rockwell Collins acquired Arinc’s air-to-ground network in 2013.
