Setting Sail for Global Coverage—Flightradar24 ADS-B Receivers On-board a Surface Ocean Robot

We are excited to announce for the first time that we have received and processed ADS-B signals collected by our autonomous boat. The unmanned surface vehicle, a Wave Glider®  manufactured by Liquid Robotics® and managed by Maritime Robotics as part of their new partnership, is receiving ADS-B signals from aircraft over the North Atlantic Ocean and transmitting them to the Flightradar24 network via satellite relay. This is the first use of an autonomous surface ocean robot for ADS-B reception by any commercial flight tracking service. (more…)

We quickly added coverage all over Europe and began to expand outward. In late 2010, we published our first global coverage snapshot. (more…)
