Aireon, a planned joint venture between Iridium and NAV CANADA, the world’s largest oceanic ANSP by traffic volume, with support from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and suppliers Exelis and Harris Corporation, will allow fully global and continuous space-based monitoring and control of aircraft, even over oceans and remote regions where it is not possible today.
