Aireon and FlightAware Announce Qatar Airways as GlobalBeacon Launch Partner

Quote:
Montreal, Canada (September 26, 2016) – Aireon LLC and FlightAware announced today that Qatar Airways will be the first airline to adopt the new GlobalBeacon℠ solution to meet the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System (GADSS) recommendations.

The agreement will provide Qatar Airways’ Integrated Operations Centre with minute-by-minute, global tracking of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) equipped aircraft by 2018.

GlobalBeacon combines FlightAware’s worldwide flight tracking information – – including origin, destination, flight plan route, position, estimated time of arrival – with data from Aireon’s space-based ADS-B aircraft surveillance system, due to be operational by 2018. The solution will provide Qatar Airways with state-of-the-art technology to meet and exceed GADSS requirements and recommendations.
