Join Aireon for the very first Annual ANSP Customer Summit

November 12 - 14, 2019
Arlington, Virginia, USA

What is the ANSP Customer Summit?

Join Aireon for the very first Annual ANSP Customer Summit. The event will be hosted just outside of Washington D.C. in Arlington, Virginia, from Tuesday, November 12 to Thursday, November 14, 2019.

This year, 2019, is the first year of live operations for Aireon’s space-based ADS-B system, which commenced in early April between NAV CANADA and NATS in the North Atlantic airspace. Since going live, Aireon has made some significant improvements to the system, operations and customer support and has new features to deploy in the near and long term.

Join us for this three-day summit, which will provide our guests with important briefings regarding the system and create the opportunity for discussion from Aireon’s operational and soon-to-be operational customers.

Why Attend?

The summit will serve as a means for customers to learn more about the system in operation, collaborate with peer organizations on how they are using and implementing the data, and to voice any future requirements and feedback.
