Malaysia Airlines Says It Will Use Satellites To Track Its Fleet
Aireon's new satellite network is expected to be completed in 2018.
The airline says the data provided by this system will fill in the gaps in information for aircraft operations centers, especially when a plane passes over an ocean or a remote airspace where there is now no flight surveillance in place.
"Real-time global aircraft tracking has always been a goal of the aviation community", said Malaysia Airlines Chief Operating Officer Izham Ismail.
"Real-time global aircraft tracking has always been a goal of the aviation community", said Chief Operating Officer, Malaysia Airlines, Captain Izham Ismail in a statement here.
The new solution will help upgrade existing SITAOnAir Aircom FlightTracker by combining Aireon's space-based automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) data with the existing data from global aviation company FlightAware's multiple global sources.
The airline will use a soon-to-be-launched satellite network to monitor its fleet in areas where there is now no surveillance, including polar regions and remote areas of the oceans, BBC reported.
Showers possible Thursday, National Weather Service says
There's a chance for thunderstorms after 2 p.m., and southwest wind will blow between 8 and 11 miles per hour . New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Just weeks before, a new report indicated the wreckage was likely outside the search area. Malaysia Airlines is the first Sitaonair customer to sign up to the scheme.
Three years ago, Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 disappeared from radar somewhere above the Indian Ocean with 239 people on board. The plane, which had been bound for Beijing, is presumed lost.
The UN-urged method is already in use by most global flights that transmit signals that can be picked up by ground or satellite. FlightAware provides a combination of global air traffic control data, aircraft datalink information and terrestrial ADS-B data through a secure streaming data feed.
The fate of MH370 remains one of the world's greatest aviation mystery.
Although debris from MH370 has been found washed up on the shores of Africa, the location of the main body of the aircraft remains unknown. The plane's location transmitter went dead, possibly because it was intentionally shut off, and the aircraft would not have been visible to the satellite network. The deep-water search was called off earlier this year.
