Aerial & Maritime to offer air traffic management, ship tracking


Helsinki's Aerial & Maritime Ltd (A&M) intends to build a global nanosatellite constellation capable of providing air traffic management and ship tracking services by 2021, the company announced.
The system is designed to help the airline industry to be fully compliant with ICAO standards, providing real-time surveillance of all aircraft globally.
According to Shipping Gazette, the company estimates a market potential of US$1 billion from multiple customer segments including air navigation service providers, airlines, data aggregators, ship owners among others.
The UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) has stated that space-based air traffic surveillance will be a cornerstone of the modernisation of air traffic management.
Today, there is no way to monitor air traffic in large parts of the world, including the oceans, Africa and areas around the poles.
A&M will be using the flight-proven GomSpace nanosatellite technology. The system will enable a very price-competitive solution for global air traffic management surveillance, Global Aviation Distress Safety System (GADSS phase 1 and 2) as well as airline ADS-B tracking and maritime AIS vessel tracking.
