NAVBLUE partners with Flightradar24 to launch N-tracking and Airbus digital eco-system is initiated

Following two years of successful collaboration, NAVBLUE strengthen its partnership with Flightradar24, the flight tracking company, to commercialize a new solution called N-Tracking. This solution will display real time aircraft positional information data to track every aircraft, anywhere, relying on ground ADS-B receivers, and provide alerts in case of critical aircraft operations.

The partnership agreement will enable N-Tracking operators to follow and monitor their aircraft fleet worldwide while enjoying the widest coverage with ADS-B out coming from Flightradar24 and secure remote and oceanic flights with ACARS solution. The solution is coupled with an event alert system that detects and highlights any route deviations from your initial flight plan in line with ICAO recommendations. In addition a Collaborative Decision Making Information system provides updates in real-time thanks to Flightradar24 and ACARS messages. It allows dispatchers to better manage airport congestions, delays and turn-around.

NAVBLUE offerings and the overall industry will benefit in the near future from the Airbus collaboration with Spire and Flightradar24. This collaboration aims at creating a surveillance digital eco-system fusing space and ground data to provide global, near real time, data to track every aircraft, anywhere, anytime.
