What is Aireon ALERT

Aireon Aircraft Locating and Emergency Response Tracking (ALERT) is the aviation industry’s first and only free, global, real-time emergency aircraft location service. Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), aircraft operators, 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 will fill 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 will utilize Aireon’s space-based ADS-B data and will be 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.

Why is Aireon ALERT needed now?

Before the Aireon space-based ADS-B system, the real-time aircraft tracking and surveillance wasn’t possible for the entire planet. Remote, oceanic and arctic regions had little-to-no real-time air traffic surveillance. The ability to know the location of an aircraft, in real-time, is a new, invaluable asset, especially in emergency situations where a few minutes of time can make all the difference.

Who can sign up for the Aireon ALERT?

ANSPs, Aircraft Operators (Airlines), Search & Rescue Organizations and Aviation Regulators can all register for the Aireon ALERT completely free. You do not need to be Aireon or IAA customers to take advantage of this emergency tracking service. There is 100% global coverage and it’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

How does the technology work?

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.
