Rockwell Collins launch Mode S Multilateration

Posted 17 November 2015 · Add Comment

Rockwell Collins has expanded its service to provide real-time flight tracking for non-ADS-B equipped aircraft.

ARINCDirect customers flying non-ADS-B equipped aircraft will be able to receive real-time position reports through an enhanced flight tracking service for business aircraft called Mode S Multilateration (MLAT).
 
“More than 80% of business aviation aircraft are not ADS-B equipped which makes this service provide tremendous benefits to our customers traveling internationally. Now customers can track the exact location of their aircraft globally in real-time, enhancing safety and operations,” said David Poltorak, vice president, Business Aviation for Rockwell Collins. 
 
ARINCDirect is also reselling FlightAware TV, a map-based tracking display that can be launched on any HDTV. 
 
The new system is available to customers in Europe currently, and is expected to be available worldwide by December.
