• GADSS compliant, N-Tracking has access to the best sources of real-time aircraft data
  • New partnership with AirSense, FlightAware and Aireon provides the most complete data sources for global aircraft tracking

NAVBLUE’s N-Tracking is a browser-based Aircraft-Situational-Display solution, empowering dispatchers and flight followers with real-time Flight Monitoring, Situational-Awareness and Enroute Communication in a single application.

N-Tracking is a process-oriented solution for all types of operations aimed to empower and enhance the user with configurable automated alerts, real-time weather, flight hazards, airport capacity, supporting various integrations (including any third-party, in-house or NAVBLUE solution and is the best integrated solution with NAVBLUE’s Flight Planning), and surface tracking allowing a gate-to-gate increased operational situation awareness.


NAVBLUE is proud to announce today the launch of an enhanced version of this key software solution within its overall N-OCC Suite, giving access to the best sources of real-time aircraft data, including Airbus AirSense, FlightAware, FAA, Eurocontrol and Aireon space-based ADS-B.


The recent ICAO Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS 2018) recommendation has elevated the importance of real-time flight-following and situational-awareness. GADSS requires airlines to receive continuous position reports from all airborne aircraft every 15 minutes in normal operations and every 1 minute in abnormal operations across all geographies. Depending on an airline's aircraft crew and areas of operations, this can be a costly requirement to satisfy.


As an AIRBUS company, NAVBLUE is uniquely positioned to leverage strategic partnerships towards developing a state-of-the-art solution to meet GADSS requirements. Working with AIRBUS AirSense, FlightAware and Aireon, N-Tracking has access to and can intelligently prioritize between ADS-B (terrestrial and space-based), ASDE-X, multilateration ATC feeds, FAA and Eurocontrol data and ACARS position data to provide the most cost-effective and accurate surveillance, as well weather and flight hazard forecasts from DTN.


Shawn MECHELKE, Vice President OCC Products at NAVBLUE, said: “N-Tracking is the next generation of aircraft tracking and decision support solution that delivers high value to airlines. We have built business partnerships to gain access to the most accurate and complete global aircraft surveillance data in the industry along with weather content. We work closely with our customer airlines to meet all safety, operational and GADSS compliant requirements, and look forward to continuing to advance N-Tracking as the most innovative solution in the industry”.


Sharing the joint vision to enhance air traffic awareness, safety and efficiency, we are a passionate member of this innovative aviation ecosystem”, said Carina SCHNITZENBAUMER, Head of AirSense, Airbus. “The N-Tracking solution is a huge step towards a more digital, efficient airspace and we are delighted to contribute to this great achievement, looking forward to a continued collaboration to make more of the sky together.”


Daniel BAKER, CEO at FlightAware, said: “As the world’s most complete and most sophisticated flight tracking data and distribution platform, FlightAware is pleased to be delivering data that powers the N-Tracking solution. Our fusion of real-time terrestrial ADS-B data from FlightAware and space-based ADS-B from Aireon will enable N-Tracking customers to satisfy their most demanding operational and regulatory requirements.”


“We are proud to partner with NAVBLUE as part of a mutually shared vision for an aviation future powered by real time data”, said Cyriel KRONENBURG, Vice President, Aviation Services at Aireon. “By merging Aireon’s powerful space-based ADS-B data with other feeds, we are collaborating to empower full situational-awareness for global aircraft tracking.”
