Aireon Aircraft Locating and Emergency Response Tracking (ALERT) is the aviation industry’s first and only free global emergency aircraft location service. Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), commercial aircraft operators/airlines, regulators and search and rescue organizations in need of crucial aircraft location data, can rely on Aireon ALERT to help provide an ADS-B OUT 1090MHz equipped aircraft’s most recently known position. As a free service, Aireon ALERT fills a critical need, ensuring search and rescue personnel have the most accurate aircraft position data available when responding to an incident, regardless of global location.
Aireon ALERT utilizes Aireon’s space-based ADS-B data and is operated by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA). The Aireon ALERT 24/7 communications facility is located at IAA’s North Atlantic Communications Centre in Ballygirreen, Ireland. Aireon ALERT users do not have to be customers of Aireon or IAA. All users simply have to register for the free emergency service.
Learn more about how Aireon ALERT works.
Before the Aireon® space-based ADS-B system, aircraft tracking and surveillance wasn’t possible for the entire planet. Remote, oceanic and arctic regions had little-to-no air traffic surveillance. The ability to know the location of an aircraft is a new, invaluable asset, especially in emergency situations where a few minutes of time can make all the difference.
ANSPs, Commercial Aircraft Operators/Airlines, Search & Rescue Organizations and Regulators can all register for the Aireon ALERT completely free. You do not need to be an Aireon or IAA customer to take advantage of this service. There is 100% global coverage and it’s available 24/7/365. It is required that a company/official email address is used so that administrators can verify the registrant is actually with the registering organization.
Knowing that any request that comes in to Aireon ALERT will be time sensitive, we’ve designed the system to be as efficient as possible, while also ensuring identity verification and security protocols are in place. Our simple step-by-step process will ensure a swift fulfillment of the data. For more information on how to register, view our User Guide.
