TYSONS CORNER, VA, May 24, 2016 — Matt Desch, CEO of Iridium Communications (Nasdaq: IRDM), has said that a satellite system that works to track an aircraft’s GPS transponder can be an alternative way to support real-time flight information monitoring, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

Desch, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2016, told CBS News in a report published Friday that such a system can be possible by 2018 to succeed current flight monitoring technology that uses ground-based radars.

“A global surveillance system can track that airplane down to the second and help you find it very quickly, ” he said.
