Briefing: November 2018
Search-and-rescue delays after an airplane crash will become a thing of the past, with Aireonís global satellite network in place, the company says. Aireon says the system will be ready to go online in 2019. ďAs long as an aircraft is broadcasting on 1090 MHz ADS-B, we will be able to locate it anywhere worldwide,Ē said Peter Kearney, CEO of the Irish Aviation Authority, one of the partners in the new system. General aviation users donít need to pre-register, but search-and-rescue teams can contact the company for location data. The rescue capability is offered as a free service to the aviation community, Aireon says.
