Developed based on ICAO standards and recommended practices, GlobalBeacon is a first of its kind product from Aireon℠ and FlightAware that makes global, minute-by-minute tracking possible today.
GlobalBeacon is a web-based alerting dashboard that combines Aireon℠ space-based ADS-B position data with FlightAware’s technology and worldwide flight information – including origin, destination and estimated time of arrival (ETA). The web dashboard provides real-time 4D aircraft positions as well as customizable alerts for immediate notification if an aircraft is in distress. It is designed to be a turn-key solution that complements existing tools and systems to give airlines and aircraft operators the peace of mind that their fleet is being monitored anywhere in the world.
Since “ADS-B Out” is already mandated in many parts of the world, most airlines and aircraft operators don’t require additional equipment to take advantage of GlobalBeacon.
