The Internet of Things (IoT), as defined by the International Telecommunications Union, is “a global infrastructure for the information society, enabling advanced services by interconnecting (physical and virtual) things based on existing and evolving interoperable information and communication technologies”. IoT may generate new customer-serving and revenue-generating opportunities at airports, optimize airport operations, and create efficiencies that could impact various stakeholders.
The great divide between Newtonian dynamics and Einstein’s Relativity is a chimera. Einstein had great respect for Newton and made sure that his theory would converge to Newton’s three laws as conditions approach classical proportions. Flight dynamics, which is based on Newton’s laws, is no exception. During an one-hour perambulation, I will acquaint you with Special and General Relativity as it applies to classical dynamics.
More than ever, the aviation world is facing a huge challenge with the global pilot shortage more on our blog here. An efficient training is consequently needed in order for pilots to perform in an ever crowdier sky and keep the sky safe. Now, what better way to learn than to observe one’s own performances and analyze them to improve constantly? Flight debrief can become a key element of learning provided that it is objective and gives back the reality of the flight. Enhancing pilots’ performances means less risks for take-off, landing and during the flight.
Communication networks play a vital role in an airport’s daily operations and continuing digitalisation. Airports rely heavily on their communications networks to operate efficiently and safely to ensure optimum passenger experience. Today’s business climate, however, calls for a smarter, greener and more cost-efficient way of deploying a network at the airport. Passive optical LAN can help airports address these priorities while ensuring service reliability and quality of services between airport stakeholders.
