Inmarsat on the Fast Track

Inmarsat on the Fast Track

07/04/15

Inmarsat has partnered with Airservices Australia to trial improved flight tracking services on commercial airline flights to and from Australia. This move follows a resolution on February 6th by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to adopt a new 15-minute tracking standard for commercial aircraft. Inmarsat is also working with Qantas and Virgin Australia in developing the operational concept for the trial, using Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Contract (ADS-C) satellite technology in Australia’s oceanic regions.

Airservices Australia is the first Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) to trial the ICAO standard, using Inmarsat’s global flight tracking ADS-C messaging service.
