Research Experience

Currently I am working on my Graduate Student Research Project with NASA Ames Research Center. The concept is to use ADS-B aircraft position messages to automatically flight follow non-IFR aircraft and issue an alert, if any aircraft’s flight conditions indicate the aircraft may have crashed. The appropriate flight service supervisor would examine the circumstances. After examination, if circumstances indicate a probable crash or forced landing, the supervisor would initiate SAR procedures. The ability for flight service to exactly direct search and rescue services to a crash site will save millions of dollars each year not to mention the economic value of the lives saved.
