How Our Services Help
For the first time, Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) are able to use a 100 percent global air traffic surveillance system through Aireon’s space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) technology. The Aireon system performs in a way similar to ground-based ADS-B networks and integrates seamlessly into existing air traffic management automation platforms.
Through the Aireon service, worldwide airspace has air traffic surveillance capabilities for ADS-B equipped aircraft without requiring ANSP investments in ground-based infrastructure.
As a result, air traffic controllers, airlines, regulators and all aviation stakeholders no longer have blind spots in Flight Information Regions (FIRs), enabling all ADS-B equipped aircraft to be monitored, in real time, no matter where they are. Additionally, Aireon’s space-based system acts as an added layer of surveillance, providing redundancy across all FIRs.
This groundbreaking technology improves safety, efficiency, predictability and capacity while reducing overall infrastructure costs.
