We activated nearly 200 receivers in June, adding new coverage to our extensive network. Our new and existing receivers allowed us to track over 4.8 million flights last month. While we’re experimenting with satellite-based ADS-B receivers, our terrestrial network will continue to be vitally important.

In North America, new receivers helped us increase our MLAT coverage in the US, Canada, and Mexico and expanded our coverage area in Canada as well. South American receiver additions expanded MLAT coverage in Brazil and added new coverage in Colombia, Venezuela, and Argentina.

Across the Atlantic we activated our new northernmost receiver in Ny-alesund, Norway. We also expanded MLAT coverage in Scotland and the Swiss and Italian Alps. New receivers in southern Turkey and northern Iran are adding MLAT coverage. A new receiver in Kyrgyzstan expands our coverage area there.

In southern Africa, we added two new receivers in Namibia and one each in Angola, Botswana, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. We also added a receiver in Tunisia and one in Morocco.

Our coverage area in China got a boost with almost 10 new receivers, some of which are also helping to expand our MLAT coverage there. MLAT in southern Japan was also extended with the activation of three new receivers there.

Here’s the full map of all receivers activated during June (click to expand).
