The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) announced the launch today of its new centralized online information area for aircraft tracking developments.

The new aircraft tracking information area, available on the ICAO Public Website, provides a detailed timeline and all supporting reports and documentation relating to the call for and realization of the world’s first global aircraft tracking requirements.

ICAO Member States recommended the adoption of a new 15-minute aircraft tracking Standard during discussions amongst the over 850 participants to the UN specialized agency’s 2015 High-Level Safety Conference (HLSC) in February of this year.

The new information area aggregating the documentation and developments on aircraft tracking responds to calls from the HLSC to lead the conduct of a Normal Aircraft Tracking Implementation Initiative (NATII) using existing technologies. A NATII Steering Committee, with global participation, was formed and the Asia/Pacific Region was selected as a representative area of operations for the initiative.

The recommended Standard is expected to be adopted at the end of 2015.
