TYSONS CORNER, VA, August 1, 2018 — Iridium Communications’ (Nasdaq: IRDM) Aireon subsidiary has partnered with Airbus’ defense and space business to provide space-based aircraft tracking data to the latter’s recently launched airspace analytics platform, ExecutiveBiz reported July 20.

Aireon said July 19 it will supply Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast data to Airbus’ AirSense tool in support of real-time aircraft tracking, airspace utilization and flight route planning to help increase airport capacity.

“There will be so much value in the unique dataset that Aireon is creating with global, real-time aircraft tracks… It will be a big-data gold mine and help significantly improve air travel as the database builds,” Matt Desch, CEO of Iridium and a four-time Wash100 recipient, said in a tweet.
