Lufthansa Systems Offers Real-Time Radar Data

Users of Lufthansa Systems’ Lido/Flight WINDS can now avoid delays on flights in the USA and Canada due to weather or airspace overcrowding. Lufthansa Systems has been authorised by the FAA to receive, process and forward ASDI (Aircraft Situation Display to Industry) Class 1 radar data. Unlike so-called ASDI Class 2 radar data, which is transmitted with a five-minute delay, the real-time Class 1 data is classified as security-critical by the FAA. Subscribers must therefore pass an ASDI Full Audit in order to access them.
