Aireon is on the path to revolutionizing air traffic surveillance and aircraft tracking, as the world’s first and only company deploying a 100 percent global space-based system. This system will provide real-time aircraft monitoring spanning never before covered areas of the planet, including remote, oceanic and polar regions. Aireon’s receivers are hosted on the Iridium NEXT satellite constellation, which began launching in January 2017. The Iridium NEXT constellation consists of 66 operational satellites in a low-earth orbit and utilizes a unique cross-linked satellite architecture creating a web of coverage around the world. The Aireon system has the ability to enable a safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly aviation industry resulting in significant CO2 emission reductions. Numerous Air Navigation Service Providers have already signed on to receive Aireon’s space-based ADS-B data, including NAV CANADA, Naviair, Enav, the Irish Aviation Authority, UK NATs and more.
The Security Engineer is an integral part of Aireon’s network and information system security program, and is principally responsible for monitoring and protecting Aireon’s sensitive data and systems from intrusions; helping the organization understand advanced cyber threats; and helping to create strategies to protect Aireon networks. The Security Engineer will report directly to Aireon’s Information Security Manager (ISM). Communication and adeptness at working with a variety of personalities and skillsets across multiple organizations, multiple time zones, managing subcontract and vendor relationships, and willingness to contribute broadly in a fast-paced, start-up environment will be a key part of this role.
