ITT has launched a web-based data visualisation application, AlaskaVue, which enhances the safety and operational efficiency of Alaskan airspace through the real-time data of flight asset location.

The application features pan and zoom capabilities, multiple views such as satellite, maps, charts and elevation, multiple overlays such as significant boundaries, runways, air routes and navigation aids, flexible display options and colour coding of flight objects.

AlaskaVue is based on a synthesis of multiple FAA system-derived aircraft surveillance data available in the US National Airspace System.

AlaskaVue data sources are derived from the US Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast network being deployed by ITT, along with Wide Area Multilateration data from FAA-deployed WAM systems.
