Cirium and Aireon Extend Partnership to Offer Live and Historical Aircraft Positional Analytics


Cirium, the aviation analytics company, has extended its long-term agreement with Aireon, the leader in space-based aircraft tracking, to offer live and historical aircraft positional analytics for advanced situational awareness and post-operations analysis.

As Aireon’s selected partner to bring these analytics to market, Cirium is integrating its own industry-leading schedule, fleet, flight status, weather and emissions data with Aireon’s global satellite-based coverage of flight positions to create a fully comprehensive stream of gate-to-gate data.

Aireon’s satellite-based positional data ensures complete coverage of all modern aircraft, equipped with ADS-B, anywhere in the world, including aircraft flying at low altitudes, over oceans or mountainous regions, which cannot be tracked via ground-based receivers.

The enriched level of aircraft positional information will give airlines full visibility across their networks, helping to enhance operational efficiency, reduce fuel burn and mitigate passenger disruption.

“The combination of Aireon’s precise positional data and Cirium’s complete schedule, fleet, flight status and weather data bring unprecedented value to airlines, airports, OEMs, lessors and more that have historically struggled to integrate disparate and incomplete datasets. Insights derived will help to improve the estimated time of arrival (ETA) and flight connection efficiencies, improve delay diagnosis and heighten the intelligence on taxi times,” said Jeremy Bowen, CEO of Cirium.

“We are extremely proud to work with Aireon to deliver premium aircraft positional analytics and provide situational awareness at a level of granularity and accuracy which was previously unavailable.”

“Together, Aireon and Cirium will provide a comprehensive, high fidelity and real-time view of a flight from gate-to-gate. We are delighted to be a part of this growing partnership and to collaborate with Cirium to make complete aircraft positional analytics available across the industry,” said Don Thoma, CEO of Aerion.

After conducting an in-depth market review, Cirium identified Aireon as the key leader in this space with best-in-class end-to-end capabilities across data capture, coverage and quality. This ensures that Cirium is matching the most accurate positional information to the specific ID of the aircraft and the flight number for easier integration into airline and fleet tracking use cases. The data is also fused with critical analytics in Cirium’s Core, including aircraft utilization and flight history data.

Cirium’s real-time and historical aircraft positional analytics will add value for stakeholders throughout the air transport industry, including airlines, airports, aerospace companies, insurers, aircraft lessors and more.

The analytics can be accessed through multiple methods that seamlessly integrate with a business’ existing systems such as a live stream, API, database, and bespoke solutions.

Notes to editors

ADS-B is an air traffic surveillance technology and standard that relies on the aircraft broadcasting their identity, a precise GPS position and other information derived from onboard systems.

Unrivalled surveillance data: Aireon’s positional data is the only ATS-grade level surveillance data available today. ATS-grade is the ability to reliably and in real-time detect key flight attributes such as position, level, and intent.
