White Paper: GPS Interference, Spoofing in the Baltics

Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP) and aircraft operators rely on the integrity of the GPS signal to navigate the aircraft to its destination. Increasingly, however, the integrity of the GPS signal has become a target for interference — via nefarious actions like spoofing or jamming, or non-intentional actions like malfunctioning avionics. This trend has prompted … Read more

White Paper: Space-Based ADS-B for GPS-Independent Position Validation

Aircraft operators, Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP), air traffic control organizations, and others rely heavily on data and associated systems to safely and efficiently operate and navigate aircraft throughout the airspace. From takeoff to touchdown and beyond, positional data is critical. But what happens when the systems fail? What if the GPS data is somehow … Read more

White Paper: Independent Position Validation in Russia

Aireon has developed an Independent Position Validation solution that leverages both the aircraft’s transmitted ADS-B information and the overlapping space-based coverage provided by the Iridium satellite constellation to determine the validity of a reported ADS-B position. Automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) allows for accurate and reliable surveillance of aircraft that uses GPS to determine the aircraft’s … Read more
