Vaxtor AIN – Airplane Identification

MOBOTIX Certified App

The software recognizes the identification numbers issued by the ICAO and the FAA, which are located on the outside of airplanes and helicopters. Many private planes and light aircraft travel are not equipped with a transponder. This is where the app comes in, as it helps to identify and track aircraft in real time as they move, take off or land. This is a valuable tool, particularly for smaller airports with limited human resources.

The software reports extra metadata such as the time and date in addition to the aircraft tail number. This data helps to improve processes and increase security.  The application also provides significant support within insurance and supply chain management, as well as assisting law enforcement authorities by tracking unauthorized small aircraft.
