Join Aireon for the very first Annual ANSP Customer Summit

November 12 - 14, 2019
Arlington, Virginia, USA

What is the ANSP Customer Summit?

From Tuesday, November 12 to Thursday, November 14, 2019, Aireon hosted the very first Annual ANSP Customer Summit just outside of Washington D.C. in Arlington, Virginia.

2019, was 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.

This three-day summit provided our guests with important briefings regarding the system and created the opportunity for discussion with Aireon’s operational and soon-to-be operational customers.

We hope you can join us for our next summit in 2020.

Why Attend?

The 2020 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.
