Aireon℠ Space-Based ADS-B

The first and only solution for 100% global flight tracking.

Aireon Space-Based ADS-B Flight Tracking

FlightAware and Aireon have partnered to revolutionize flight tracking with the first, truly global solution that exceeds modern safety standards. Until now, flight tracking over remote regions such as the North Pole, South Pole, rainforests, deserts and oceans has never before been possible. Aireon space-based ADS-B changes that.

Once-per-minute positions. Anywhere in the world.

Aireon ADS-B receivers are hosted on the new, state-of-the art Iridium NEXT satellite constellation and provide at least one position update every minute, even over polar and oceanic regions.

Exceeds ICAO Flight Tracking Requirement for Airlines.

By providing at least one position every minute, anywhere in the world, FlightAware and Aireon have the first truly global solution that exceeds ICAO’s Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS) requirement.

No New Aircraft Equipment Required.

Aireon space-based ADS-B works with equipment already installed on aircraft as part of international air traffic control modernization efforts, making it a cost-effective alternative to expensive satcom services.

Flat price. Unlimited coverage.

Unlike satcom services, Aireon space-based ADS-B is provided at a flat, affordable monthly price.
