The airline satellite tracking and surveillance system operator Airon announces the eighth and final successful launch of the Iridium NEXT satellite constellation for the transmission of airborne space-based surveillance transmission (ADS-B).
The launch of the Vandenberg Air Force Base from the SpaceX Falcon 9 Californian rocket elevator and the last 10 Iridium NEXT satellites were placed at low Earth Orbit (LEO).
The air cargo loads the 75 (66 operational loads and 9 spare parts) in orbit, carrying out a historic launch program and passing one of the last milestones in the Air Halls before a new era air traffic monitoring and aircraft tracking.
This last operation brought the airfield loads in an orbit 75 (66 operational loads and 9 spare parts), completing the historic launch program and passing one of the last milestones before Airon's ushers is a new era of global air traffic monitoring and tracking.
Air is the world's first 100% global air traffic monitoring system and is the driving force behind the company's space-based technology.
Unlike Aircraft Monitoring and Infrastructure Infrastructures, Aireon uses the space ADS-B technology, which allows the location of the aircraft location automatically and in real time. Aircraft technology air traffic controllers and air companies provide a complete and complete overview of a whole sky, ever before.
To better understand air navigation in the world, including remote and oceanic aircraft, Aireon said that the entire industry will have significant direct and indirect benefits such as greater security, more efficient flight, a more precise destination and predictions for departure, faster response time, aircraft distribution Reduced CO2 reduction and more.
"Today we have overcome a major movement to dump our traffic in traffic and only a few weeks from the operating system," said Don Thoma, Managing Director of Aireon.
"Now that the presentations are over, the latest integration and testing of the final launches can begin, which is why the global vision of real, global and air traffic in the world will be a reality.
"It's hard to have excitement until it's formally, especially from the performance point of view, our technology has exceeded expectations. Many believe that this is the end of this journey, the latest Iridium NEXT starting point, but for us, at a new start, air traffic will be managed."
Aireon system has made all forecasts and processes 13 million ADS-B messages per month, with the same amount as the total deployment.
Air traffic controllers can use the best and most accurate surveillance data to be able to separate airplanes, often through redundant layers.
Aeronautical data air traffic controllers will be fully redundant that cover airborne aerial airflow to increase the availability and reliability of a critical air traffic management function so as to have a positive impact on safety and efficiency. This will help optimize flight optimization by eliminating gaps in the fleet data reports and, ultimately, improving the security, accuracy, and efficiency of passengers around the world.
"Aircraft space-based ADS-B needs the aviation industry," said Marion Blakey, former Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
"In my lifetime, ADA-B technology was a great deal of effort in global air traffic management efforts. The most important achievement in launching air is only the airborne victory, but now it is time for the aviation industry to have a clear and complete image of the airspace in the world, including oceans and remote ones. "
A total of 81 Iridium NEXT satellites have been built, all of which receive air cargo. Today there are 75 satellites with nine spare parts and the other six spare parts.
The latest launch marks the launch of the Iridium NEXT campaign ending the entire Air system.
