INVOLI.live platform is the central hub of the G-1090 data transmission. The platform monitors the health status and the data quality of each receivers. The platform provides a web interface to manage the network and perform firmware updates remotely when needed.


INVOLI.live platform is powered by an in-house developed multilateration algorithm, which enhances the quality and reliability of the air traffic data. The system is designed as an easily scalable and affordable way to provide air traffic information in all areas uncovered by existing secondary radars to manage complex airport and heliports operations, BVLOS drone flights, or UTM zones among others U-Space.


INVOLI.live platform provides a web interface that allow the visualisation of air traffic data. From real time visualisation for situational awareness to air traffic density map for risk assessment purpose, INVOLI.live removes the complexity of data processing and data analytics processes and allows you to focus on your core business. 


The air traffic data provided by INVOLI.live platform is also available via API and can be integrated into third-party software and applications. It has already proven to offer highly reliable and safety-critical data to multiple customers to address their risk assessment, air risk mitigation, situational awareness or even process automation needs.


“ Thanks to a dedicated sensors infrastructure on the ground, INVOLI system provides the information (position, direction, speed, altitude etc.) of low-altitude aircraft equipped with ADS-B, FLARM, and transponder, even under 150m”

“As the largest telecom company in Latvia, LMT is already a key player in the local industry. INVOLI’s technologies allow us to offer safety for drone operations and optimize the use of our existing infrastructure.”

Authorizations for specific operations remain  difficult to obtain from aviation authorities. This is especially true for BVLOS flights and other specific operations in non controlled airspace due to the high risk of air collisions.


Drone operators can mitigate the air risk of their operations by using a professional live air traffic detection system able to accurately locate both drones and aircraft.


By submitting this solution to authorities, drone operators have much higher chances to get their flight authorizations and safely conduct long-distance, BVLOS operations.


For a long time, the lack of a proper regulatory framework prevented open drone operations from reaching their full potential. Now, regulators around the world are finally agreeing on a common approach to enable safety for the users of the skies.


Private entities can now become a U-space / UTM airspace manager, as certified by their local aviation authorities. They can thus ensure the orderly coexistence between drones, manned aviation and air traffic control. The certified entities will manage flight operations of large numbers of simultaneous drone operations.


U-space airspace managers will need to present a solid risk assessment to their aviation authorities in order to get certified. Both a precise risk analysis and a reliable live air traffic detection system maximize the chances to obtain this certification


Carried out in different environments and airspaces, the same type of drone operations  entail a different level of mid air collision risk. Therefore, it may be hard to obtain flight authorizations from the aviation authorities as the risk will be different for every situation.


Drone operators must offer proper mitigation measures to reduce the risk of their operations. A professional, mobile air traffic detection system that can be integrated with operators’ control stations will provide such a solution.


By using this solution, drone operators have much more chances to get their authorizations issued by the authorities and to further conduct safe operations in multiple different locations.


Only a few categories of airspace are currently monitored with professional equipment, mostly around international airports. However, a lot more areas are yet to be equipped to face the rising number of anticipated aircraft flights and drone operations.


Airspace managers can deploy scalable and affordable ground based network of air traffic receivers in the most remote areas using existing professional infrastructure. This comprehensive cooperative airspace surveillance solution provides flight information service and allows the detection of electronic conspicuity devices in uncontrolled areas.


Airspace managers will have in hand the necessary safety critical data to reduce the risk of accidents in previously uncontrolled airspaces. This visibility will positively impact several airspace users, for instance regional airports, emergency services, drone operators or infrastructure owners.


High infrastructure, such as wind farms or electric lines, are dangerous for aircraft during night time. To remedy that problem, such infrastructure is equipped with powerful obstacle avoidance lights to be visible by air traffic. However, those constantly on lights create light pollution for both nature and people.


To reduce this light pollution and increase public acceptance of wind farms or other high infrastructure, an air traffic detection system allows to switch on those obstacle lights only when an aircraft passes by and keep those lights switched off the rest of the time. 


To switch off obstacle lights as often as possible during night time is becoming mandatory in more and more countries. An adequate air traffic detection system is an efficient solution to prevent light pollution and improve air traffic safety.


In case of incidents, rescue teams must arrive on-site as fast as possible. Having to act quickly, rescue helicopters, airplanes, and drones risk creating air traffic conflicts within the intervention area or surrounding medical facilities.


To avoid such accidents and to notify other users of ongoing operations, a reliable live air traffic visualization tool should be used by an emergency operation center in order to manage the deconfliction challenge in such hazardous situations.


Such instantaneous, precise, and reliable air traffic data reduces the risks of accidents and enables rescue teams to continue saving lives without putting others at risk.


Does the receiver detect drones?

The G-1090 can detect drones with transponders or ADS-B, but it is not capable of detecting 4G signals. This means that drones equipped with our Leman RID tracker are recognized by traditional 4G antennas and forwarded to INVOLI's servers rather than directly by the receivers.

What is the G-1090 data consumption?

The G-1090 sends at least 1GB of data each day; due to Multilateration, this amount increases as the number of receivers increases.

What is the G-1090 detection range?

The receiver can identify planes within a 20-kilometer radius equipped with a one-watt ADS-B transponder. In the case of General aviation aircrafts equipped with 250 Watts transponders, this surface can be expanded to a radius of 400 kilometers (40km radius for FLARM). When implementing multilateration, Mode S, Mode A/C, and FLARM can be detected on 1600 km2 (5 receivers).

Is there a risk of noise/perturbation near the receivers?

Our receivers are passive, which means they don't transmit any signals and hence don't interfere with other antennas.
