ASECNA to deploy integrated, comprehensive ATFM solution


Working with industry partners, Aireon is helping to unlock new operational, safety, and environmental improvement opportunities for a leader in the adoption of space-based automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) services – the Agency for Air Navigation Safety in Africa and Madagascar (ASECNA).

Aireon, working with Metron Aviation, has integrated its AireonFLOW air traffic flow management (ATFM) data into Metron Aviation’s Horizon platform. The combination of the two systems allows for continuous global satellite-derived ADS-B position reports and will extend the visibility of ASECNA flights outside its airspace. Further, this complete solution will assist ASECNA to more accurately predict traffic flows into its airspace and airports for ATFM implementation which will improve and maintain a high level of safety and efficiency, and reduce fuel consumption operating costs, as well as pilot and ATC workload. ASECNA has been using Aireon data operationally across its six managed FIRs since 2020.
