… just like most of You, and who participate in this thread, enhanced by those recent aviation accidents, I have also started to wonder how possible would it be for the crews to get the life-saving advice in those moments, minutes sometimes, and when the situation begins to loose control. In some, or most, situations, it is literally about seconds. However, in some accidents, and there are the readout analysis (FDR, CVR) that confirm that, the crews were spending a lot of precious time unsuccessfully trying to find out what's going on with the aircraft. … ….
That's why, all by themselves, some questions are imposing to me ...… ….
Would it be possible to install, in the cockpit of each airliner, a live-streaming and recording capable 4K 360° VR
camera that would cover just the Flight Deck Panel Posters: the flight instrument panel, the center pedestal (control stand) and the overhead panel? I guess it would. Does it need to be switched on all the time? Of course not. Who would, if needed, turn it on? The crew itself.…….
Would it be possible to install, or does it in a certain way already exist, in the cockpit of each airliner a remote satellite reading of the flight parameters and information derived from the on-board systems? …….
Would it be possible to immediately enable (in this moment cockpit camera turns on) for the crew of the airliner in the crisis situation the live-streaming link with the factory's emergency center in which would always be a couple of duty service team, composed of the probe pilot(s) and engineer(s), ready and capable of understanding (by reading the data and watching the cockpit camera) the aircraft's situation and give the specific advice and guidance to the crew? …….
Would this system be embeddable, or vice versa, into the new one Aireon
's space-based ADS-B.global air traffic surveillance
system using a satellite-based, space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) network that will be able to meet the strict real time ATS surveillance requirements, required for air traffic separation services anywhere in the world?…….
Just a small reminder; ADS-B is an air traffic surveillance technology that relies on aircraft broadcasting their identity, a precise Global Positioning System (GPS) position and other information derived from the on-board systems. The data is broadcast every half a second from the aircraft, and is being used by Air Traffic Controllers (ATCs) to identify and separate aircraft in real-time. Space-based ADS-B extends the same ADS-B technology currently received on ground-based receivers to space……….
I do understand how much it is easier to imagine something than to realize that as the project, and again, each project is the result of some idea. The difference is that there are great ideas, but also and those others, stupid and meaningless. Yet, some of those latter seem to be such just in the beginning ……….
The main concern would probably be, from the technical side, how to push the 4K signal through the satellite channel. After all, who says it has to be 4K 360°
camera? It could be a 2K 360°
How about all those people seating in the aircraft's cabins who use their smartphones and laptops during the flight? Those informations are transmitted to and from the smartphones and laptops via the fuselage-mounted SATCOM antennas, using the SwiftBroadband flexible IP connectivity standard, which connects to the closest satellite signal. Information is passed between the ground and the plane via the satellite. Wi-Fi signal is distributed to the passengers in aircraft via an on board router, so ... I see no reason why the crew wouldn't be allowed to use all that technology. And yet something more advanced. Or they already do?…….
In some cases this "Emergency Advice Callsystem" wouldn't be of a great, if any, help. But in some of them, it certainly would save a hundreds of lives. The main question is how much someone's life worths and in which units its value is measured. I wish if someone would seriously think about introducing this system to airplanes. And make it work ...…….
For those who lost their lives in those tragedies it will be too late……From the .Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409 crash site ………….……….
For those who left behind them, it will be a poor consolation. They will continue to live with their pain and endless void in themselves...………………….
For all those who will continue to fly on the aircraft, it could mean increased safety……………………..…….
Unfortunately, that's the life; for somebody it will always be just too late...…….
I deeply believe that the souls of those, and who were taken away to the death by those aircraft, saw the face of God and before their bodies touched the Earth. In my compassionate prayers are all those who left behind them, trying to continue their lives with the pain and endless void. I hope they will succeed in the endeavor to find the strength in themselves to continue living for those who remain in their lives. In a special way, I am particularly feeling sorry, and recommend them to God's grace, for all those whose gods on the Earth bear the names: Profit, Earnings, Deception, Fraud, Insensitivity, Ruthlessness ... Too many of them to stay in the same sentence, enough to conquer the hearts of many ...…
