SITA to deploy AIRCOM Server Flight Tracker in India

Air transport IT provider SITA is set to deploy its AIRCOM Server Flight Tracker in India for efficient aircraft tracking.

Air transport IT provider SITA is set to deploy its AIRCOM Server Flight Tracker in India for efficient aircraft tracking.

The move comes in response to the announcement by India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation to mandate aircraft tracking on a real-time basis.

SITA’s AIRCOM Server Flight Tracker solution combines SITA’s airline dispatcher centre system and airline operations centre system (AIRCOM) server with its Future Air Navigation System (FANS) ground application, which is available to air navigation service providers (ANSPs).

"Aircraft tracking mechanisms are increasingly important for the safety of passengers."

Using the flight tracker solution, airline flight dispatchers can track unexpected aircraft movements by using the FANS Automatic Dependent Surveillance Contract application to request aircraft position reports across the ANSPs borders.

Airlines can also be notified about the unexpected loss of contact between their aircraft and air traffic control FANS ground systems.

Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation secretary Ashok Lavasa said: "In the last ten years, air passenger traffic in India has witnessed tremendous growth with the compounded annual rate reaching 13%. Aircraft tracking mechanisms are increasingly important for the safety of passengers.
