FAA Explores Space-Based | ADS-B in Strategic Partnership


In November 2020, Aireon announced a new partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to explore innovative uses of space-based ADS-B across the entire air traffic management spectrum using a global dataset. Under the agreement, in which L3Harris Technologies is the prime contractor, the FAA will have broad, intra-agency access to Aireon’s high fidelity, real-time air traffic surveillance data to support the FAA evaluation of a variety of applications, including validation and integration into air traffic control automation platforms, airspace safety analysis, accident investigation data analysis, airport surface applications, search and rescue, air traffic management support, remote situational awareness and commercial space.
