Aireon has just deployed their new aircraft emergency location service called ADS-B ALERT. Aireon will work with aircraft operators, search-and-rescue organisations and aviation regulators in order to help them locate aircrafts experiencing disruptions or, in case of a crash, help them find the plane wreck.

Over the past year and after opening registrations for their service in August 2018, Aireon acquired more than 190 clients across airlines, air regulators and emergency rescue organisaitons. The service will be free of charge and will first be operated by the IAA, Irish Aviation Authority that will be able to provide, in 15 minutes, a tracking report on any plane using ADS-B ALERT.

This new technology will help preventing lost crashed planes like the MH370 from Malaysia Airlines back in March 2014 which we still have not recovered.
