We activated over 150 new ADS-B receivers in July, which helped us for the first time track more than 5 million flights in a single month. A majority of the receivers activated this month have added new MLAT coverage, while many enlarged our coverage area.

We activated 24 new receivers in the United States in July, expanding out MLAT coverage area and filling in a few small coverage gaps. New receivers in Moses Lake, Washington and Mobile, Alabama will help track new aircraft test flights and a new receiver in Alaska will help with our transpacific coverage.

In Brazil, we activated 14 new receivers, expanding our MLAT coverage in eastern Brazil and adding coverage on the north coast and near the Bolivian border. New receivers in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, and Chile are also helping increase coverage.

In Africa, we added receivers in Botswana, Kenya, Liberia, Morocco, and Nigeria. We also added a new receiver in Cape Verde.

Three out of 4 new receivers in China expanded our coverage area there, while the fourth added to our MLAT coverage. Four new receivers in India are contributing MLAT coverage in the north of the country.

In Australia, new receivers in Western Australia, Queensland, and South Australia are expanding our coverage area and one in New South Wales is increasing our MLAT coverage.
