Rockwell Collins has introduced its web-based ARINC Flight Data Display, which can provide a simple visual representation of an entire fleet, announcing Royal Jordanian Airlines as its launch customer.
With the ARINC Flight Data Display aircraft locations are displayed on a user interface that identifies any gaps in position reporting.
A range of alerts are available for events such as “mute” aircraft or flight plan deviations to ensure any potential issues are quickly resolved.
The ARINC Flight Data Display with the MultiLink data feed supports ICAO’s minimum requirements of less than 15-minute regular reporting in oceanic/remote airspace.

The ARINC Flight Data Display uses ARINC MultiLink as its primary aircraft tracking data source, and can also integrate third-party and airline proprietary data.
The web-based Flight Data Display can be used as a standalone service or integrated with Rockwell Collins flight operations tools, ARINC Hermes and ARINC OpCenter.
Royal Jordanian’s President/CEO Captain Suleiman Obeidat, said: “We fly extensively across desert and oceanic routes, so we needed a solution that would enable us to track our aircraft with global coverage.
“We are implementing the ARINC Flight Data Display and ARINC MultiLink to enable us to cost-effectively track our fleet wherever we fly.”
Yun Chong, Vice President, Commercial Aviation and Network Services for Rockwell Collins, said: “Flight tracking continues to be an important topic in the aviation industry, particularly in light of the upcoming 2018 ICAO mandate.
“The combination of the ARINC MultiLink data feed and our new Flight Data Display enables carriers to accurately, efficiently and cost-effectively meet flight tracking requirements ahead of the mandate.”
ARINC Flight Data Display also incorporates weather layers specifically for airlines and the aviation industry.
The weather layers are updated every 10 minutes or less, allowing carriers to predict en-route weather conditions as well as at the destination airport, helping to avoid costly redirects, cancelled flights and misallocation of ground handling.
