Air traffic control and flight tracking is a demanding task, where lives are on the line every day. Sadly, controllers and companies are often hampered by antiquated information systems and a lack of reliable data coverage on aircraft at both ground and air levels.
OnOffBlock.com solves this challenge with a truly dynamic flight tracking solution – the first in the world to leverage proprietary, satellite-based
ADS-B technology to capture and deliver comprehensive flight status data to the people who need it, when they need it.
ADS-B stands for Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast.
The result is a complete flight data system that provides:
Extreme accuracy and reliability minimize the very real risk of accident.
Direct, dynamic data feeds simplify the tedious task of GTC management.
State-of-the-Art Technology, Streamlined Process
Complete Satellite Coverage
OnOffBlock.com utilizes low-earth-orbit (LEO) satellites with direct lines of sight to airfields and flight routes to ensure full flight coverage, block to block. This independent system delivers 100% coverage, with no participation from any airport, carrier or other company. And with access to approximately 60 satellites scheduled for launch or currently in orbit, the system ensures double-triple redundancy and non-geosynchronous coverage.
OnOffBlock.com then delivers these results into a SaaS system, with a next-generation, user-friendly XML and/or GUI format – putting the flight data at the fingertips of the client. Depending on the size of the client, this data is available in several formats:
- Map of the airport at perfect 20:1 measurement, providing visibility for the entire field and live aircraft (call number, type, speed and exact position)
- Raw data, available on demand via API or XML
As the satellites collect the flight data, the satellites transmit the data to a ground tracking station and then to our database, where advanced technology cleans, structures and mates the data to existing schedules.
With precise, dependable results and relative ease of implementation, we’ve designed the entire system to replace the outdated, poorly-equipped existing infrastructure that connects tower ops, ground control ops and carrier-based flight ops center.
The system also significantly enhances the accuracy of data that powers the entire travel industry, including airline flight schedulers, aircraft equipment managers, online travel agencies/travel management companies and any other consumer of flight status information.
OnOffBlock.com is working in conjunction with top space industry participants and manufacturers. Our founder is a 17-year seasoned air travel industry veteran, with a breadth of experience ranging from into-plane servicing to distribution of fuel and more. We understand this industry, inside and out.
Technology moves forward at light speed, and so does OnOffBlock.com. We’ve already established our plans to take our system to even higher levels of performance, with mid-Earth orbit and high-Earth orbit constellations.
We are pioneering the use of micro-satellites specifically purposed to track block-to-block aircraft data. Design of the new technology has been completed, and we are planning to launch the system over the next 12 to 18 months.
