[Avionics Today 05-20-2015] Sabre Corporation has enhanced its AirCentre Flight Explorer solution using Planefinder data to offer additional coverage globally for aircraft position information as part of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen).
Planefinder will now receive Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data feeds used by aircraft to transmit their name, position, call sign, status, etc. The addition of Planefinder data furthers Sabre Flight Explorer's expansion of flight-tracking capabilities toward complete global coverage, particularly in Europe, Asia Pacific, and Central and South America where coverage was often limited to proprietary flight data.
