2006 ! Diagrams: Boeing patents anti-terrorism auto-land system for hijacked airliners

Zitat:Boeing last week received a US patent for a system that, once activated, removes all control from pilots to automatically return a commercial airliner to a predetermined landing location.

The “uninterruptible” autopilot would be activated – either by pilots, by onboard sensors, or even remotely via radio or satellite links by government agencies like the Central Intelligence Agency, if terrorists attempt to gain control of a flight deck.

Boeing says: "We are constantly studying ways we can enhance the safety, security and effiecency of the world's airline fleet."

“There is a need in the industry for a technique that conclusively prevents unauthorised persons for gaining access to the controls of the vehicle and therefore threatening the safety of the passengers onboard the vehicle, and/or other people in the path of travel of the vehicle, thereby decreasing the amount of destruction individuals onboard the vehicle would be capable of causing,” the patent authors write. “In particular, there is a need for a technique that ensures the continuation of the desired path of travel of a vehicle by removing any type of human decision process that may be influenced by the circumstances of the situation, including threats or further violence onboard the vehicle.”

According to the patent, existing preventative measures are less than fullproof – pilots can decide to open the lockable, bullet-proof cockpit doors and federal air marshals can be overpowered and de-armed. Boeing’s alternative has an onboard processor that once activated, disallows pilot inputs and prevents anyone on board from interrupting an emergency landing plan that can be predefined or radioed to the aircraft by airline or government controllers and carried out by the aircraft’s guidance and control system. To make it fully independent, the system has its own power supply, independent of the aircraft’s circuit breakers. The aircraft remains in automatic mode until after landing, when mechanics or government security operatives are called in to disengage the system.

Boeing envisions several methods of activating the system. Options include manual switches for pilots to hit, or possibly force sensors on the cockpit door that would trip the anti-terror mode if a minimum force threshold were crossed, for instance if someone were trying to break down the door. Another option is a remote link whereby airline or government workers in ground facilities would monitor and aircraft and command the automatic control mode “once it is determined that the security of the air vehicle is in jeopardy.” Radio links could also be used to inform ground facilities and nearby aircraft that an aircraft has been placed in the automatic flight mode.

It’s unclear if the Boeing work is related to last week’s issuance of a $1.9 million US Federal Aviation Administration contract to Raytheon for an Advanced Route Evaluation System (ARES). According to Raytheon, ARES will perform risk analysis on aviation routes to help planners determine the best routes for aircraft to use during emergencies.”

Aside from the safety and security aspects of having such a system, Boeing sees it as a preventative measure: “Once the automatic control system provided by the present invention is initiated, no one on board the air vehicle is capable controlling the flight to the air vehicle, such that it would be useless for anyone to threaten violence in order to gain control the air vehicle.”

Aber es gibt natürlich weder das Patent noch Boeing noch diesen McDonnell.
Weil ja Hologramme in die WTC gestürzt sind ...
Die Auseinandersetzung mit Leuten, die schlicht nicht zur Kenntnis nehmen, darauf antworten, wirklich diskutieren, wenn man auf z.B. Biege- oder Brucheigenschaften von Stahl hinweist, sogar Alltagswissen diesbezüglich "vergessen", und die die Fernsteuerung und Autopilotentechnik, die mittlerweile ebenfalls Alltagskram wird, ignorieren, bleibt schwierig. Ich sag ja nix mehr. Nur, dass Ralf da tolle Sachen zutage gefördert hat.
Hatten wir nicht jüngst das Thema, dass jeder da abgeholt werden sollte wo er steht?

Hatten wir nicht eine Übereinkunft?

Autopilot could land hijacked planes
Zitat:By Catherine Zandonella, San Francisco

Aeroplane hijackings could be halted in progress with existing technologies, say aviation researchers, but the attempt would be risky.

“Most modern aircraft have some form of autopilot that could be re-programmed to ignore commands from a hijacker and instead take direction from the ground,” says Jeff Gosling of the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

If a hijacking were detected in progress, being able to control a plane from the ground would be crucial, says Gosling. “The only other thing you could do is shoot the target down.”

Autopilot, the system that maintains altitude, speed, and direction during flight, is fully capable of landing a plane without help from the pilot, says aviation engineering researcher Dale Oderman at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana. “We are already capable of flying unmanned military spy planes, so it is not far off to think that a remote system could land a commercial passenger jet.”

Hijacking the fail-safe

However, Jeffrey Speyer, an aerospace engineer at the University of California, Los Angeles has qualms about the idea of remote control, saying that system could be a terrorist target itself.

He is devising a control system that would allow planes to fly close together in bird-like flocks. He says it could be adapted to override a hijacker’s instructions, but “the system might be tampered with by the very people who you don’t want taking over the plane.”

The US Federal Aviation Administration experimented with remote landing of a commercial jet during the 1980’s, says spokesperson Holly Baker at the FAA’s William J. Hughes Technical Centre in Atlantic City, New Jersey. However it has not been an active topic of research in recent years.
Cockpit monitor

Detecting a hijacking is another area in which new technologies could play a role. Currently, if the pilot cannot use the radio to call for help, he or she can flip a switch to emit a distress signal that can be picked up by radar, says Oderman. The FAA could not confirm whether any distress signals were heard prior to Tuesday’s attacks.

Numerous new technologies could call for help even if the pilot and crew were incapacitated. On board computers could detect when the plane has veered off course and then radio for help. Or, video cameras and voice recognition systems in the cockpit could alert ground-based crews, says Lewis Mingori, chairman of the mechanical and aerospace engineering department at the University of California, Los Angeles.

In future, researchers could deploy thousands of miniature networked sensors, or MEMS (microelectromechanical systems), to detect odd behaviour in the cockpit, says UC Berkeley computer scientist David Culler.
Security solution

To date, most of the FAA’s research has been centred on preventing hijackings through increased airport security, says FAA’s Baker. But advanced systems, like InVision Technologies’ computerised tomography scan for explosives, are only now being adopted due to high costs.

In the case of Tuesday’s attacks, it is difficult to predict how government agencies will respond in terms of air security, says Gary Ackerman, a terrorism expert at the Monterey Institute for International Studies.

“Until we know how they got around existing security measures, it will be difficult foresee how to strengthen them,” he says.

Die Geschichte der "Radarlücken" ist prinzipiell und konkret Stuß.
Radarstrahlen machen nicht nach  x km irgendwie schlapp, sondern stoßen evtl an Hindernisse - an denen sie ja zurückgeworfen werden. Konkret: Man sehe sich die Zahl der Flughäfen in den USA an und ihre Verteilung. Dann berücksichtige man noch die Möglichkeit, Radardaten zusammenzuschalten, denn natürlich sind die ARTCCS und die Flughäfen miteinander vernetzt.
Dazu kommen dann noch  Transponderdaten und Funk, beim Ausfall von jedem gehen die Lichter an im dichtesten Luftraum der Welt.
Das Video ist Schrott - schon allein deswegen.
Weder standen da überall Eiger Nordwände herum noch gibt es Tarnkappen für Verkehrsflugzeuge. Und selbst wenn es diese gäbe und sie plötzlich übergezogen würden, wäre ja gerade das Grund für einen Alarm.

Zitat:US company Raytheon flies and lands a Federal Express 727 passenger jet six times on a military base in New Mexico, entirely by remote control and without a pilot on board. This is done to test equipment intended to make hijackings difficult, by allowing ground controllers to take over the flying of a hijacked plane. The Associated Press will later report, “[T]he Raytheon test used technology that provides the extremely precise navigational instructions that would be required for remote control from a secure location.” The Associated Press will observe, “Unmanned, ground controlled reconnaissance aircraft have been used by the military for missions over Iraq and Kosovo,” and will quote Thomas Cassidy, president of the California-based General Atomics Aeronautical Systems and manufacturer of the military aircraft, as saying, “It’s a reliable system."

GPS ALERT Civil-Military Interoperability For GPS Assisted Aircraft Landings Demonstrated
Zitat:A government-industry team accomplished the first precision approach by a civil aircraft using a military Global Positioning System (GPS) landing system Aug. 25 at Holloman AFB, N.M., Raytheon Company announced today.

A FedEx Express 727-200 Aircraft equipped with a Rockwell-Collins GNLU-930 Multi-Mode Receiver landed using a Raytheon-developed military ground station. Raytheon designed and developed the differential GPS ground station under an Air Force contract for the Joint Precision Approach and Landings System (JPALS) program.

The JPALS system is being developed to meet the Defense Department's need for an anti-jam, secure, all weather Category II/III aircraft landing system that will be fully interoperable with planned civil systems utilizing the same technology.

Raytheon and the U.S. Air Force have been conducting extensive flight testing for JPALS at Holloman over the last three months.

The FedEx Express 727-200 aircraft at Holloman successfully conducted a total of sixteen Category I approaches. After completing a number of pilot flown approaches for reference the aircraft conducted six full autolands using the JPALS ground station. "The consistency of the approaches allowed us to proceed to actual autolandings with very little delay," said Steve Kuhar, Senior Technical Advisor Flight Department for FedEx Express.

The aircraft was guided by differential GPS corrections, integrity information, and precision approach path points transmitted from the Raytheon developed JPALS ground station. Although the approaches were restricted to Category I, accuracies sufficient to meet Cat II/III requirements were observed.

Raytheon is the world leader in designing and building satellite-based navigation and landing solutions for civil and military applications. In addition to developing JPALS for the Department of Defense, Raytheon is also developing both the Local Area Augmentation System (LAAS) and the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) for the Federal Aviation Administration. The JPALS and LAAS will provide an interoperable landing capability for military and civil applications.

"Raytheon is committed to developing and deploying satellite based navigation and landing systems for the military and the flying public," said Bob Eckel, Raytheon vice president for Air Traffic Management. "We understand the importance of this technology and are proud to be a part of the success achieved this summer during JPALS testing at Holloman."
