South African air navigation service provider Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) has started using global aircraft tracking and surveillance system manufacturer Aireon’s space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) in aircraft operations in its airspace.

Since signing on for Aireon data, ATNS has undertaken a thorough and in-depth implementation and testing process to ensure operational and safety benefits accrue.

“The integration of Aireon’s space-based ADS-B data holds tremendous potential for all air navigation service providers, but particularly for ATNS and its very busy airspace.

“The start of operational service using Aireon data is a significant achievement for everyone involved. We look forward to many years of continued collaboration,” pronounced Aireon customer affairs VP Peter Cabooter on July 21. 

ATNS provides air traffic, navigation, training and associated services within South Africa and a large part of the Southern Indian and Atlantic Oceans, comprising about 6% of global airspace.

“The deployment of space-based ADS-B service strengthens our aspirations and commitment to . . . industry change. To this end, we are dedicated to upholding aviation safety and efficiency by harnessing innovation and creating spaces for enabling technologies.

“This will go a long way to enable ATNS to achieve optimum capacity and thus contribute to industry sustainability and value preservation,” ATNS CEO Nosipho Mdawe said.
