Flight Tracking

ARINC Flight Data Display, powered by MultiLinkSM

With the increased demand for flight tracking capabilities, Collins Aerospace is helping airlines display critical aircraft data to aid enroute decision making accurately, efficiently and cost-effectively.

Our ARINC flight data display harnesses the power of real-time data in one unique flight and fleet tracking tool, while meeting the requirements ahead of the 2018 ICAO mandate deadline. 

Flexible, efficient, reliable

The web-based flight data display’s flexibility enables it to be used as a standalone service or integrated with other Collins flight operations tools–ARINC Hermes and ARINC OpCenterSM.

The display uses ARINC MultiLinkSM as its primary aircraft tracking data source, however third-party and airline proprietary data can also be easily integrated. The user experience is enhanced by adding layers for various geographical maps and overlays such as aviation specific weather.

The situational display provides a simple and clear visual representation of your entire fleet and ensures key flight information is available at a glance to support all aspects of airline operations.

Aircraft locations are accurately displayed on the user interface with media identifiers to help identify any gaps in position reporting and optimize cost-effective use of preferred media.

Seamless flight tracking powered by ARINC MultiLinkSM

ARINC MultiLink merges multiple data feeds including ADS-B, ADS-C, FANS, US TFM, EUROCONTROL, ACARS and Collins’ exclusive HFDL Diagnostics Data. These multiple feeds provide increased awareness of the location of your fleet, even when travelling over remote regions. Additional data feeds are also planned in 2017 to enhance the service further.

Key features and benefits of combining ARINC flight data display with ARINC MultiLink:

  • Meets ICAO global flight tracking mandate
  • Accurate flight tracking with media identifiers
  • HFDL diagnostics data provides tracking coverage for remote and polar regions (exclusive to Collins Aerospace)
  • At-a-glance visibility of flight attributes
  • Identification of gaps in position reporting to optimize use of preferred media
  • Alerts that allow for potential issues to be quickly analyzed and resolved
  • Up-to-date weather information to help avoid costly redirects and canceled flights

The ARINC flight data display combined with ARINC MultiLink supports ICAO’s minimum requirements of less than 15-minute regular reporting in oceanic/remote airspace. A range of alerts are available for events such as “mute” aircraft or flight plan deviations to ensure any potential issues are quickly resolved.

  • Departure airport
  • Destination airport
  • Actual departure time
  • Estimated time of arrival
  • Air/ground speed
  • Altitude
  • Aircraft registration
  • Flight number

Weather layers

Weather layers are provided specifically for airlines and the aviation industry; weather layers are frequently updated every ten minutes or less and are displayed on the graphical user interface.

This allows you to predict enroute weather conditions as well as at the destination airport, helping to avoid costly redirects, canceled flights and misallocation of ground handling.

Weather overlays include:

  • US and Canada radar composite
  • Global infrared satellite imagery
  • Western Europe radar composite
  • Australia radar composite
  • Japan radar composite
