Wireless systems improve aircraft weighting

Wireless systems improve aircraft weighting
All aircraft gain weight over time and as such, it is vital to accurately weigh an aircraft. This is particularly the case in larger aeroplanes, with paint applied, painting and not stripping, configuration changes and cabin equipment modifications. On smaller crafts, such as lighter planes and helicopters, additional equipment such as cameras and communications apparatus will also add to the weight, as may certain repairs.

Aircraft tracking system could aid disaster relief efforts

Aircraft tracking system could aid disaster relief efforts
A tracking system called HYPERION based on eye-safe lasers could enable aircraft, UAVs and even orbiting satellites to transmit vital data to ground stations more securely, quickly and efficiently. The development of HYPERION has been pioneered by a joint team through Innovate UK's HITEA programme: the University of Oxford with funding from the EPSRC, and Airbus Group Innovations with Innovate UK support.
