IHS Jane's Airport Review
Mar 12, 2015
The Aireon joint venture for space-based global air traffic surveillance has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Airports Authority of India (AAI) on the potential deployment of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) services in Indian airspace.
The MoU states that AAI will work with Aireon to develop applicable regulations, standards, and procedures for ADS-B; identify specific requirements for AAI's use of space-based ADS-B surveillance; and demonstrate how the use of ADS-B can improve aviation operations in Indian airspace. The Indian Space Research Organisation will assist the AAI in examining the feasibility of the Aireon solution.
Aireon on 24-25 March will brief the AAI about the cost-effectiveness of its solution.
