When this latest deployment comes on line, the system will have near-global coverage with 15-min- ute or better update intervals and will assist airlines to meet the In- ternational Civil Aviation organiza- tion (ICAo) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations that require aircraft be equipped by the end of 2018 with an aircraft tracking system for those flights not tracked by air traffic control. “We’re over two-thirds of the way there,” said Don thoma, ceo Aireon. “And as we get closer to a fully-operational system, Aire- on is working with partners like FlightAware to ensure airlines have early access to this global data. on completion of the constellation, update rates of a few seconds will be the service standard around the world.” FlightAware and Aireon have worked together to create Global- Beacon, a first-of-its-kind product . GlobalBeacon combines FlightA- ware’s data processing platform and web-interface with Aireon’s space-based ADS-B data, for a cost-effective, easy-to-deploy solu- tion to help meet the ICAo Global Aeronautical Distress Safety Sys- tem (GADSS) standards. “We are fusing Aireon data with FlightAware data to empower air- lines and other aircraft operators with products that exceed GADSS recommendations for flight track- ing,” said Daniel Baker, founder and ceo of FlightAware. “With the satellites from today’s successful launch, customers will be able to beta test coverage that meets the november 2018 requirement for aircraft tracking.” In addition to GlobalBeacon, FlightAware is delivering the data through services that are already commonly used by airlines and industry leading service providers such as SItAonAIR. “our partnership with FlightAware means that any airline using AIR- CoM® Flighttracker will have at its fingertips a dynamic tool providing an overview of the exact position, speed and altitude of its airborne fleet ,” said Dominique El Bez, vice president Product and Strategy, SItAonAIR. “Most critically, the cov- erage will now be 100 per cent even over oceanic, remote and polar areas. By receiving once-per-minute positions from Aireon’s network of space-based ADS-B receivers, airlines will exceed the ICAo GADSS upcoming 15-minute recommenda- tion.” the Aireon system is hosted on the Iridium nEXt satellite constella- tion, which will consist of 66 low- earth-orbit cross-linked satellites. A total of 81 Iridium nEXt satellites are being built, all of which will have the Aireon payload on board. Cur- rently, 75 satellites are planned to be deployed with nine serving as on-or- bit spares and the remaining six as ground spares. the constellation is planned for completion in 2018. on the web: www.aireon.com, www.IridiumnEXt.com, www.flighta- ware.com and https://www.sitaonair. aero/.
