In 2016 alone, there were 439 air passenger fatalities in the US. We believe that with the current state of satellite imaging technology, aviation can be much safer than it is now.
Beacon, or “Backup Emergency Area Chart for Off-Route Navigation”, provides pilots the best chance of surviving an emergency landing. It analyzes highly elastic landscape parameters including:
Surface Area | Wind Conditions | Crop Patterns
Crop Fertility | Crop Type | Obstacles
A continuously updated map ranks ideal landing sites using infrared reflection to analyze surface conditions with machine learning algorithms. Beacon will be offered as a standalone navigation app or as an integrated feature for existing electronic flight displays.
