News feeds about new Digital Technologies in Aviation
pgmrdlm quotes a report from CBS News: For the first time, a new network of satellites will soon be able to track all commercial airplanes in real time, anywhere on the planet. Currently, planes are largely tracked by radar on the ground, which doesn’t work over much of the world’s oceans.
Almost five years after the aircraft vanished on March 8, 2014, investigators have had little luck in finding the wreckage of the plane that vanished with 227 passengers on-board. No transmissions were received from the aircraft after the first 38 minutes of the flight.
New Delhi – Airbus has delivered India’s first fully customised, ACH145 helicopter to Mr Adar Poonawalla, CEO and Executive Director of Serum Institute of India, the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer by doses. This marks the entry of the highly successful twin engine helicopter into India’s private and business aviation market.
The Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system functions with satellite rather than radar technology to more accurately observe and track air traffic. In a bid to fix the privacy loopholes inherent in the proposed system, NASA is looking to adopt distributed ledger technology (DLT), or Blockchain.
I get permission from company security to fly into work using my paramotor (I don’t have one, but would like to get one). We have six offices around the city. The city has two airports: one major international to the northwest of downtown and one smaller regional in the middle of downtown.
Simulated Flight Tests Are Being Held To Validate The Design Of The Critical Elements Of The OPV. Indra, one of the leading global technology and consulting companies, and its partner Gaerum have just reached a key milestone in the development of the optionally manned Targus aircraft: the start of....

SUBANG JAYA: An Indonesian fisherman today said he and three others had witnessed the final minutes of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 which disappeared en route to China five years ago.
The FAA expects to release technical guidance later this year that will enable avionics manufacturers to build systems based on new collision-avoidance logic that may eventually replace the traffic alert and collision avoidance (TCAS) system that has protected aircraft from midair crashes for nearly three decades.
Over the past 15 years, nearly a thousand of these small, cheap, modular satellites have been launched into Earth orbit to take pictures, test technology, and perform other simple tasks. The twin MarCOs, A and B, have the distinction of being the first CubeSats sent to interplanetary space.
The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been slow to allow commercial use of drone aircraft, much to the chagrin of companies like Amazon and Google. However, the agency may be on the verge of to make commercial drones more useful in the US.
