Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS)

The Aircraft Tracking Task Force (ATTF) submitted the report to be considered in the organization’s development of a Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS).
According to IATA CEO Tony Tyler in a speech at the associations Global Media day in Geneva, GADSS “recommends that airlines evaluate their current tracking capabilities against the performance criteria and close any gaps within a 12 month time frame.”


Aircraft Locating and Emergency Response Tracking (ALERT) service. ALERT plans to provide “accurate and immediate location data for aircraft in emergency situations as a public service,.

“The [ALERT] service will provide information on any aircraft that’s gone missing, that’s lost communication with the aircraft operator or with the air traffic control organization and provide that data in an authorized, secure manner to support any search and rescue or emergency contact ability that they would need to perform under their obligations as a search and rescue authority,” said Thoma. “Our view is that finding an occasional, very infrequent lost aircraft is not a business model. We think that’s just a public service we need to provide to our airline and air traffic control customers, if you will, and community as a whole given that the main purpose of our business is to improve efficiencies and safety for air traffic control organizations.”

Even with organizations like Aireon in place to provide the satellite ADS-B solution to operators as it comes available and, hopefully, cut prevent another tragedy such as MH370, Tyler warned that there is ultimately no panacea when it comes to safely, securely and unerringly tracking aircraft worldwide.
