Revolutioning air traffic surveillance since 2011

Aireon was created in 2011 to provide real-time global air traffic surveillance anywhere in the world. Aireon’s service uses space-qualified Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) receivers built into each of the 66 satellites in Iridium NEXT, Iridium’s second-generation satellite constellation, to deliver this transformational capability.

Low-latency data, powered by satellites

The backbone of Aireon’s technology resides on Iridium constellation of satellites. Eight Iridium launches on Space-X Falcon 9 rockets successfully occurred between January 2017 and January 2019. Iridium’s next generation satellite constellation is delivering exciting new innovations and opportunities, while ensuring continued high performance and reliability, far into the future. Iridium is hosting Aireon’s specially designed receivers on each Iridium satellite, covering 100 percent of the globe. Iridium’s low-latency, 66 cross-linked Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites make it uniquely suited to meet the technical demands of global air traffic surveillance and tracking.
