Many airplanes are capable of crossing huge distances on a daily basis without many problems, but occasionally things can go horribly wrong. Take, for instance, an Air France plane crash three years ago that claimed the lives of nearly 300 people. Could better technology for detecting wind patterns and plane location have saved the lives of those involved in general aviation accidents like this?
One company says yes—and better yet—it has a solution. According to 9 News, Iridium has announced new radar technology called Aireon that will revolutionize the way the aviation industry is tracked and controlled.
Often times, planes go through airspace that doesn’t have air traffic control capabilities due to its remote location, like the Atlantic Ocean. Iridium says that Aireon will allow planes to be tracked in these areas and will improve safety and separation services, as well as emergency response time, in the event of an aviation accident.
The equipment will also allow planes to track wind patterns, such as the constantly moving jet streams above the oceans, in real time, which will improve flight times and efficiency. This could be the equivalent of taking 2.2 million cars off of the world’s roads.
The Cleveland Personal Injury Lawyers at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy are anxious to see this new technology utilized and are hopeful it will be able to prevent aviation accidents and save lives.
