IATA aircraft tracking, draft options by year end

IATA EXPECTS to present draft options for enhanced global aircraft tracking to the aviation industry before year-end.
The association’s Aircraft Tracking Task Force plans to deliver the draft options to the International Civil Aviation Organisation in September, followed by the industry-wide presentation.
The disappearance of flight MH370 saw IATA to establish an industry task force to develop recommendations to improve global flight tracking.
ICAO and IATA are working together to conduct a survey of vendors to identify options. Over the next few months, ATTF will develop a set of performance-based recommendations to better ensure global aircraft tracking—meaning that there will likely be a number of options that airlines can consider.
These recommendations will be developed through an assessment of available products and services used for tracking commercial aircraft against specific criteria, including factors such as performance parameters, coverage, security, and cost.
Additionally, the ATTF will define a minimum set of performance requirements that any system should achieve.
