100% Global Coverage
Are you ready for GADSS?
GlobalBeacon is a first of its kind product from Aireon and FlightAware that provides the most cost-effective and easy to deploy solution for compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System (GADSS).
Beginning in November 2018, airlines and aircraft operators will be expected to track their fleet anywhere in the world at a frequency of one position every 15 minutes during normal operations. By 2021, they will need to automatically receive positions once-per-minute for aircraft in distress.
By combining FlightAware’s data processing platform and web-interface with Aireon’s space-based ADS-B network, GlobalBeacon transcends borders and Flight Information Regions (FIRs) and provides coverage in polar airspace as well as over deserts and oceanic regions. With GlobalBeacon, airlines and aircraft operators are able to exceed GADSS standards and recommended practices for flight tracking.
Aircraft equipped with ADS-B out transponders are tracked automatically with their position broadcast in real-time. Since ADS-B Out 1090MHz is mandated throughout the world, most aircraft do not require additional equipment to take advantage of GlobalBeacon
