Aireon will provide space-based ADS-B data services to Boeing
Boeing has signed an agreement with Aireon to access the space-based ADS-B service provider’s flight data stream. According to Boeing, it will use the stream “to expand its advanced data analytics capabilities as part of its efforts to further enhance the safety of commercial air travel.” Under the agreement, Aireon will provide Boeing with historical aircraft data and near real-time aircraft occurrence data through its AireonINSIGHTS product.
“Aireon’s data power opens a cache of information for Boeing regarding its aircraft operations in global airspace,” said Aireon CEO Don Thoma. “Through this integration, Boeing will have data to provide a complete operational view of its fleet, and we are excited to partner with them.”
Boeing plans to integrate ADS-B data into its safety analysis tools as part of a corporate safety management system (SMS) implementation. The company says the information will provide information that will allow it to “proactively identify hazards and monitor emerging safety trends.” AireonINSIGHTS offers information including airport and airspace events, current flight data, security events and location alerts using a combination of Aireon’s real-time spatial ADS-B data in the world and contextual data such as infrastructure, weather, avionics, registry and aircraft scheduling.
