McLEAN, Va. - The first flight payload for Aireon LLC has been delivered by Haris Corp for integration into Iridium NEXT satellites. This is the first of 81 ADS-B receiver payloads that will be launched and deployed on Irdium NEXT to provide Aireon's real-time aircraft monitoring system that will optimize air traffic management around the world.

The Aireon hosted payload was delivered to Orbital Sciences Corp's manufacturing facility in Gilbert, AZ, where Orbital is responsible for the assembly, integration, test and launch support phases for Iridium Communication Inc.'s second-generation global satellite constellation, Iridium NEXT. The satellite production line will complete a total of 81 satellites for the constellation, including 66 low-Earth orbit operational satellites, six in-orbit spares, and nine ground-backup spacecraft, over the next three years. Aireon, with its ADS-B receiver payloads integrated as a hosted payload, will benefit from the global coverage and high availability of the Iridium NEXT constellation.

Iridium NEXT will offer improved capabilities compared to the current generation of satellites, giving Iridium even more opportunities to expand its market presence. They will also include the Aireon hosted payloads, which will expand opportunities to provide services to global air traffic navigation agencies. Forecast International expects all Iridium NEXT satellites to be delivered on or near schedule. Deliveries will be completed by 2017. Iridium expects those satellites to provide services through 2030.
