Aircraft Tracking

Aircraft Tracking

The need to operate safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively becomes more essential each day in the commercial aviation industry. Operators must find ways to meet aircraft communication regulations at the most affordable cost to stay competitive.

Afritrack’s aircraft tracking uses a network of satellites for communication for global coverage wherever the aircraft may be. Continuous high-speed satellite lock-on and position reporting translates into faster, more accurate positioning, speed, bearing, altitude and more. It allows ground crew to chart real-time flight paths, offers an extensive array of alerts, messaging, positioning and communication options. The solution has multiple map layers to provide more insight into fleet operating conditions.

The system also allows the pilot to send certain distress and non-distress messages to ground staff.

Afritrack knows that quick response time, precision coordinates and extreme reliability are critical components for aviation industry communication. Our S.O.S key integrated at Pilot’s console sends alerts immediately to ground control and SAR team with aircrafts latitude, longitude, speed, heading and altitude. Allowing SAR procedures to react promptly and deliberately.
