Aireon LLC (Aireon) announced the launch of three new commercial data products: AireonFLOW, AireonINSIGHTS and AireonSTREAM. These products aim to provide unique solutions to stakeholders in the aviation industry and beyond — significantly expanding the use cases of Aireon’s high-fidelity, Air Traffic Services (ATS) surveillance-grade data to a global audience.
This announcement marks the first time Aireon’s global dataset will be available beyond its traditional ATS surveillance enhancement application from Aireon directly, a move that will offer exciting and innovative solutions to the broader Air Traffic Management (ATM) industry and beyond.
“This is an exciting next step for Aireon in our mission to expand the implementation of single-source, high-fidelity data to a global audience,” says Don Thoma, CEO, Aireon. “Since the Aireon system went live in 2018, our space-based ADS-B air traffic surveillance data has provided the first-ever solution for surveillance of aircraft in real time, anywhere on earth. With our new commercial products, we can leverage that data to help provide innovative solutions to challenges in aviation, across air traffic flow management, aircraft operations and more.”
Each product, while leveraging Aireon’s high-fidelity data, has its own use cases for customers, such as Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), aircraft and fleet operators, tracking systems, financial institutions, insurance companies and across the Air Traffic Management (ATM) industry as a whole.
“The development of a robust commercial data services platform represents a natural evolution for Aireon,” said Peter Cabooter, VP of customer services, Aireon. “To this day, Aireon provides the only independently certified, surveillance-quality, aircraft position data with global coverage. With the launch of these new products, customers will gain not only full transparency into this data, but will be able to leverage it for their unique needs from a single platform — eliminating the need to manage multiple, disparate data sources. This is truly going to be a revolutionary offering for the aviation industry and beyond.”
