FlightAware says it will provide Metron Aviation with access to the world’s largest flight tracking network and data fusion platform, including data from FlightAware’s terrestrial Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) receivers in more than 195 countries delivering extensive flight data and surveillance position updates. This will provide a valuable resource for Metron Aviation’s portfolio of Air Traffic Management (ATM) services and tools.
As the first initiative of this relationship, Metron Aviation, in partnership with CANSO, will supply global ANSPs with their Horizon product with integrated FlightAware surveillance data as a complementary Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Horizon will provide real-time demand prediction capabilities for airports and airspace to help mitigate the uncertainty regarding the restart of air traffic operations as the industry begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Combining FlightAware data with the Metron Aviation toolset will provide ANSP’s with unprecedented access to highly accurate predictive data hours ahead of flight operations. The ability to accurately predict future capacity imbalances will lead to increased safety and efficiency for our customers,” said Chris Jordan, president Metron Aviation.
“Leveraging FlightAware’s platform and global data in Metron’s Air Traffic Flow Management Platform will unquestionably increase the predictability of flight movements for ANSPs and air traffic controllers around the world,” added Daniel Baker, CEO FlightAware.
