Russia will implement a tracking system for the location of aircraft

The system for monitoring the location of aircraft can be implemented in the territory of Russia.

The initiative to create such a system was made by the country's largest air carriers, and the main goal for innovation is to track aircraft in real time, which in turn will allow for prompt response to any abnormal situations related to the disappearance or change of course.

ICAO, together with the International Air Transport Association, recommended the introduction of such systems after the incident with the disappearance of the Malaysian flight MH370, whose location can not be established to date.

Russian experts are convinced that instantaneous information on the location of aircraft will make it possible to avoid various incidents, and the introduction of the system itself will not be an expensive process, while the benefits from use will certainly be evaluated in the near future.

It remains to be seen whether the system will be open to the entire public or whether specially trained individuals will be watching the aircraft.
