Seven aircraft have been reported missing since 2000. This begs the question, “How is it possible to lose a plane in this day and age of advanced technology?”
In this webinar thought leaders in the aviation community will share their views on the state of the aviation search and rescue industry including:
• An overview of the various aviation-related search and rescue technologies and processes used today.
• The challenges that exist to “find” the aircraft, to “predict” potential emergency situations, and to “communicate” for assistance while in the air before tragedy occurs.
• A peek into the future convergence of today’s fragmented aviation systems and technologies including an update on various initiatives currently underway to improve aviation safety going forward.
Join us as we share our ideas on how the aviation industry will evolve into a more comprehensive, connected, integrated aviation emergency “ecosystem” that will prevent emergencies, protect assets and, ultimately, save more lives.
