  1. Use the Black Box Data in Real-Time to “Proactively Prevent” as well as Find the Crashes (mh370, etc.)

    So now, 3/8/2014, we have the breaking news that a Malaysia Airlines, Flight MH370, Boeing 777-200 aircraft carrying 239 people is missing. Another plane down, like Air France Flight 447 and we are going through the same problems that should have been solved and implemented a decade ago.

    Commercial aviation if it utilizes the black box data in real-time will make flying safer and more economical. The black box should not only be used in the autopsy mode but should be used proactively to decrease the cost of flying and the fatal crashes. Planes should also have a remote copilot in addition to the on-board for safety and economy.

    The real-time utilization of the black box data could prevent the vast majority of air crashes including decompression, hijacking, pirated, rogue piloting and pilot suicide initiated fatal crashes. The cost of 9/11 alone is far more than the cost of putting in a safe system and yet nothing has intentionally been done.
    By the use of expert systems the problems aboard are automatically recognized and with in one second. We do this for our astronauts (that is how they got back from the moon) and there is not technical reason for not providing this to the travelling public. The flight recorder data can be transmitted every second to the ground giving the planes position, velocity and attitude. Getting to the crash site quickly and efficiently can in many cases save lives. This technology has been available for over ten years and hasn’t been pushed by the NTSB, FAA or Airline Association since they felt that the few crashes per year failed their economic analysis. So they have flagrantly let it drop. Yet when we review all of the economies that this technology brings to aviation the reverse is true. Airlines pay only a small fraction of the cost of a crash.
