ADS-B or Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast, is a data transference system installed in airline aircraft that allows data to be transferred between aircraft and air traffic controllers to enhance the safety and efficiency of traffic. The AirNav Systems RadarBox is a hardware receiver and software solution that receives ADS-B transmissions from aircraft and processes them using advanced algorithms to produce either raw data or a simulated "radar" plan position indicator (PPI) display. The data can be gathered from any number of RadarBox receivers and is added concurrently to the Network data stream, providing the potential for affordable world-wide coverage with easy access of data via the Internet. The AirNav Systems ADS-B Network is the first such system to be made available for general use.
AirNav Systems continues to develop this exciting and innovative tracking product and is renowned for the ability to produce bespoke solutions to exactly meet the needs of the customer at a realistic and affordable price. RadarBox can also be used as a stand-alone system to track ADS-B aircraft within the range of its own antenna, providing professional users with situational awareness of traffic out to a maximum range of 250 miles.
AirNav is proud to be a partner with FlightStats to provide the most accurate and detailed coverage of live aircraft data available to aircraft operators, airlines, airports and flight operations centres.
