ATM, Aircraft Connectivity Making Big Difference

03/11/2021

Great strides have been made worldwide as air navigation service providers (ANSPs) leverage several technologies to increase air traffic management efficiency both in the air and at airports. Indeed, India, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Central America and the Caribbean are using Aireon’s space-based ADS-B air traffic surveillance system joining 12 other ANSPs in 37 countries. Airports Authority of India (AAI) is using Aireon successfully across Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata’s oceanic airspaces, providing an additional layer of surveillance for the world’s third largest airspace.

Fly Like The Wind: Pilots Are About to Cross Atlantic in a Whole New Way

02/08/2021

Before 2020, the North Atlantic was one of the busiest airspaces in the world. Every day more than 1,300 flights would cross the pond on their journey between North America and Europe. Despite the large volume of traffic, due to the remoteness of the open water, flights were not covered by radar like they are over land. To ensure that flights remained safely separated, aircraft would fly prescribed tracks, like motorway lanes in the sky — called the organized track structure (OTS). However, these routes were not always the most…

Scrapping the North Atlantic Tracks Thanks to Aireon Space-Based ADS-B

02/04/2021

Just a few months ago air traffic controllers were able to shrink the spacing between aircraft flying on the Organized Track Structure routes across the North Atlantic Ocean. Now those same controllers are considering scrapping the tracks completely, ending a decades-long practice of aircraft management in favor of more efficient routings. Read Full Article
