Air Lab to support airline GADSS needs

Air Lab have developed Smart ADT, an industry-first GADSS (Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System) compliant avionics interface which works with the aircraft’s communication system to trigger real-time tracking of an aircraft during and abnormal event.
Smart ADT (Autonomous Distress Tracking System) leverages a “Satellite-to-Aircraft” ground link and/or Search and Rescue (COSPAS-SARSAT) for real-time tracking of a distressed aircraft anywhere in the world.
“The Smart ADT detection and triggering technology is the core of Air Lab Smart GADSS System, which was designed to helps avionics manufacturers comply with both the new ICAO GADSS requirements and Search and Rescue (COSPAS-SARSAT) standards.
The patented Smart ADT avionics computer will continuously monitor key aircraft avionics for technical problems or anomalies. When a problem or anomaly is detected, Smart ADT™ activates one or more of the aircraft’s ADS-B, ELT, ELT-DT, or on-board satellite communication system (e.g. Aireon, Iridium or Inmarsat) to initiate and continuously track (in pre-determined 1 minute or less time increments) the aircraft “Satellite-to-Aircraft” ground link through all phases of flight anywhere in the world.”
Additionally, if aircraft communication (in any form) is lost during flight, Smart ADT™ can be remotely activated (or reset) by ATC to establish real-time tracking of the aircraft, said company spokesman Joseph Bekanich.
Air Lab has developed a complete suite of “Smart Avionics” products such as Smart ADT™, Smart ADS-B™, Smart ELT™, Smart GADSS™ and others to address aircraft situational awareness in distress and security situations.
“Air Lab, LLC Smart Avionics will fill the void for global aircraft tracking, addressing avionics anomalies, power interruptions, and device tampering concerns,” added Bekanich.

Air Lab Develops ‘Smart’ Distressed Aircraft Tracking System

Air Lab LLC said it has developed the first autonomous distressed aircraft tracking system that communicates using a satellite-to-aircraft link, activated by air traffic control ground command under certain circumstances. The global aeronautical distress safety system (GADSS), Smart GADDS, could also meet ICAO requirements.

Smart GADSS weighs less than 2 pounds and is designed for plug-and-play installation. Air traffic control ground command can activate the system during loss of radio or transponder communication, after a pilot’s 7700-emergency message, or after a pilot broadcasts a “May Day Distress Call.” Smart GADSS continuously tracks the aircraft through the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) and the global search and rescue constellation, COSPAS-SAT. Air Lab said tracking takes place in predetermined time increments of one minute or less, within moments of activation. The system also has an underwater locator beacon (ULB) system.

The company also has developed other “Smart” products, like Smart ELT (emergency locator transmitter), which can trigger the existing ELT during an inflight event automatically or by ground command. Air Lab has also created Smart ADS-B.

Air Lab touts autonomous tracking first

Air Lab has developed the first autonomous distressed aircraft tracking system that communicates via a satellite-to-aircraft link that is activated by ATC.
The tamper-proof Smart GADSS system continuously tracks the aircraft through all phases of flight via global navigation satellite systems and the search and rescue satellite constellation.

What Is GADSS? Watch The Video

It follows a 2015 decision by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to recommend airlines fulfil a requirement for a 15-minute aircraft tracking standard.
The recommended standard is performance-based and not prescriptive, meaning that airlines would be able to meet it using the available and planned technologies and procedures they deem suitable and would provide for a future Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS).
The concept of operations for the GADSS was developed by ICAO over 2014, subsequent to the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 and then by a special multidisciplinary meeting on global flight tracking which ICAO which was convened soon after.
Air Lab said its Smart GADSS system is a game changer for tracking aircraft that may be in a distressed situation or for an aircraft that is no longer in communication with ATC and are presumed missing.
The unique feature of Smart GADSS is the fact that it can be activated when there is a loss of either radio or transponder communication with an aircraft, or when a pilot squawks a 7700-emergency message, or broadcasts a mayday distress call. It can also be reset while an aircraft is in flight; thus making it the first GADSS to offer this functionality.
Further, had this technology been installed on Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, Air Lab said the aircraft would have been tracked through all phases of the flight. Smart GADSS was developed so that another incident like MH370 never happens again, according to company spokesman Joseph Bekanich.
The Smart GADSS tracks the distressed aircraft using GPS-based technology as well as the global search and rescue satellite constellation (COSPAS-SAT) allowing continuous tracking of an aircraft’s location at one minute intervals. Smart GADSS can also send a detailed burst message to selected aviation and government authorities, providing them with information regarding geographic position, altitude, and airspeed, among other things, within moments of a triggering event.
In addition, Smart GADSS has developed a complement of smart products such as Smart ELT (which can trigger the existing ELT during an Air Lab crisis either by pre-programmed parameters or by ground-based command, i.e. ATC) and Smart ADS-B.
The smart technology is also configurable to be activated by other avionics such as a FDR, ADS-B, TAWS, or the aircraft transponder, monitoring avionics to detect an anomaly or power interruption and triggering either the Smart GADSS and/or Smart ELT.
“The self-powered Smart GADSS weighing less than 2 lbs, and is designed to plug and play into the existing aircraft’s electrical/avionics systems architecture without any modification to the existing avionics interface or wire configuration; thus minimising the cost of fleet deployment,” said Bekanich.
“Smart GADSS is a powerful asset that will offer real-time assistance to track missing or distressed aircraft on a world-wide basis. Air Lab’ Smart Avionics will fill the void for global aircraft tracking, addressing avionics anomalies, power interruptions, and device tampering concerns.”

The Smart GADSS,™ tracks the distressed aircraft utilizing GPS-based technology as well as the global search and rescue satellite constellation (COSPAS-SAT).  The autonomous Smart GADSS™ enables both GPS and ground-based stations to continually track the aircraft’s location in pre-determined (1 minute or less) time increments within moments of a triggering event.  

Air Lab Smart GADSS™ has developeda compliment of “Smart”products such as Smart ELT™ (which can trigger the existing ELT during an Air Lab crisis either by pre-programmed parameters or by ground-based command, i.e. ATC) and Smart ADS-B.  The Smart technology is also configurable to be activated by other avionics such as a FDR, ADS-B, TAWS, or the aircraft Transponder.

In addition, Smart GADSS™ incorporates a ULB (Underwater Locator Beacon) system which activates concurrently with a Smart GADSS™ triggering event so that the aircraft can be tracked should it land in the water.

Smart GADSS™ and/or Smart ELT™ are powerful assets that will offer real-time assistance to track missing or distressed aircraft on a world-wide basis,” says company spokesman Joseph Bekanich.  “Air Lab, LLC Smart Avionics will fill the void for global aircraft tracking, addressing avionics anomalies, power interruptions, and device tampering concerns,” states Bekanich.
