  • NASA completes Flight Tests of Air Traffic Tool

    A NASA-led team successfully completed flight tests of a new air traffic tool aimed at maximizing efficiency, and making flights more punctual for passengers. Watch our video and read the article to find out more.

  • Where's the world's tallest control tower?

    All airports are equipped with a control tower to manage air traffic on the platform. But do you know where the highest tower is and how tall it is? Watch the video without comment to find out more. Read the answer in our article.

  • SpaceX: successful launch first step towards real-time aircraft tracking

    SpaceX launched ten satellites into low orbit on 14th January in the first phase of a constellation network of 81 satellites. By early 2018, these Iridium NEXT satellites could transform air traffic control, making it possible to know the exact flight position in real-time of all aircraft equipped with the GlobalBeacon system. Watch the launch video without comment. Read the article.

  • Qatar Airways to track its aircraft minute by minute

    Qatar Airways is to track its aircraft in real-time during flights from 2018. It will be one of the first airline companies to be equipped with the GlobalBeacon system - aiming to avoid a repeat of the MH370 scenario. Read the article.
