AIRCOM® FlightTracker

A ground-based, easy-to-implement software system that enables regular flight position updates and requires no modification to aircraft.

Overview

Deliver precision. Enhance awareness. Reinforce safety. Unlock possibilities today.

The airline industry is quickly moving towards the tracking of all flights. This is in line with ICAO’s 15-minute tracking recommendation that came into force in November 2018. Although a wide variety of technologies exist to track aircraft, they are not consistently integrated.

Introducing AIRCOM® FlightTracker, a ground-based and easy-to-implement software system that enables regular flight position updates and requires no modification to aircraft.

AIRCOM® FlightTracker gathers data from multiple global sources and fills in gaps between air navigation services provider tracking, making accurate tracking and safer flights possible.

The addition of space-based ADS-B data introduces the capability for 100% global coverage, with information reported at least once per minute. Not only does this exceed ICAO’s recommendation, it boosts operational efficiency, reducing unnecessary costs for airlines and maintaining passenger satisfaction, while also reinforcing safety in an increasingly congested airspace.

Features and Benefits

Cross-referenced position data
Aggregates the best inflight position data, from multiple sources, into a single aircraft position display that will efficiently maintain enhanced and accurate aircraft awareness.

ATC data
Flight operations staff will be alerted if AIRCOM® FlightTracker detects a problem with one of the flights. Access to FANS communications helps ground staff confirm deviations that have been agreed between the crew and ATC.

High-resolution ADS-B data
Position data frequency is typically higher when the aircraft is in the more dynamic stages of a flight, allowing ground staff to see maneuvers, such as holding, in real-time.

Automated alerting
Creates an alert and starts an automatic sequence of actions should an aircraft fail to report its expected position, deviate from the flight plan or enter a defined geographic area.

Aircraft agnostic
Uses available FAA real-time radar data, as well as radar and ATC data from other ANSP organizations around the world, to provide valuable additional aircraft position information.

Flight Route Alerting
An industry-leading weather-alerting feature, helping aircraft avoid extreme weather, including aircraft-specific turbulence, icing and thunderstorm forecasts.

Meets ICAO GADSS recommendations
With the addition of space-based ADS-B data, AIRCOM® FlightTracker provides a truly global tracking source which meets both the 2018 and 2021 ICAO flight tracking recommendations.

Cost effective and easy to implement
AIRCOM® FlightTracker pricing is based on a simple and scalable monthly fee, based on the number of aircraft.

Requires no modification to existing aircraft
AIRCOM® FlightTracker is aircraft agnostic and can be equipped to provide flight tracking capabilities regardless of whether your fleet has ACARS or ADS-B OUT capabilities – without requiring additional costs or equipment installation.

A future-proof option
Space-based ADS-B data provides reliable, consistent, accurate and future-proofed global tracking, helping to support safer flights.

Enhanced weather forecasts
AIRCOM® FlightTracker provides access to enhanced turbulence, icing and thunderstorm forecasts and route-based weather alerts.
