Inmarsat on the Fast Track

Inmarsat on the Fast Track


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.
