ACARS management


ACARS management 

In this topic, Administrators learn how to configure the time frame between two position messages. 

We estimate that this will take 2 minutes to complete.

Detailed explanation 

Tracking methods

N-Tracking uses both ACARS and ADS-B to track flights. In addition, users with the "reporter" access rights can also enter flight data manually. In this topic however, you focus on ACARS and how to set it up so that the interval between different data requests is managed.  

Interaction 1 Click the ADMIN dropdown button.

Interaction 2 Click the Administration menu item.

Interaction 1 Click the ACARS menu item.

You can change the interval between two position reports. The setting is the maximum time without any source of position after which N-Tracking will automatically request an ACARS position. If an alert is set to detect that a position report was not received during that interval, the aircraft is highlighted in red on the map.

 The default interval setting is 15 minutes. Changing the value affects only those customers with an ACARS integration.

Insert your time in minutes, then click Save.

Here is a good example of an aircraft using ACARS
