Viasat (formerly Inmarsat) is enabling air traffic modernisation with its Iris data link. Supported by the European Space Agency (ESA), Iris enables aircraft to fly more fuel efficient routes by providing digital satellite communications to complement VHF data link, which is nearing a capacity crunch in congested airspace. By digitally connecting the ATM ecosystem, it enhances collaboration between pilots and air traffic controllers to maximise airspace use and reduce the impact of disruptions for passengers, while also reducing emissions through the use of 4D Trajectory-Based Operations.
