911 Services communications are also simultaneously transmitted
to the mobile and/or computer devices of 100 ?+? government
personnel, such as the FAA, Homeland Security, FEMA, FBI, CIA,
911 and related agencies.
911 Services dynamic web interface stores more than 18 points of
critical information in an encrypted format about the flight
details, air crew and current crisis situation. This critical
profile information is embedded in each real-time message sent
and received. All Inflight 911 Services activity is time-stamped
with a downloadable message history, ensuring vital
911 Services is the perfect ?Plan B? for airline staff when
ground or controller tower personnel cannot be reached. This
innovative service would have been helpful in recent incidents
of unreachable air traffic controllers at Tahoe International
Airport, at Boeing Field/King County International Airport,
Knoxville Airport, and Reagan International Airport in March and
April of 2011?.
Services will benefit everyone from airline staff to passengers and
government officials by bringing numerous key resources together within
minutes of an in-air emergency,? states Tiffany Van Alst, spokeswoman
for InFlight Labs, LLC.
?It is imperative
for the airlines to have alternate source of ?air-to-ground?
communication for aircraft in both commercial and business aviation
markets. Accessing the existing in-flight Wi-Fi internet service allows
InFlight Labs? solutions to ?go live? within days or weeks, versus
possible years through a hardware solution deployment?.
