Boeing wants to prevent aircraft-hijacking with remote control system

Posted on Sunday, March 11 2007 @ 04:30:29 CET by


Boeing is planning to roll out a system that may eliminate the threat or terrorist hijackings:
at aircraft giant Boeing are testing the tamper-proof autopilot system which uses state-of-the-art computer and satellite technology. It will be activated by the pilot flicking a simple switch or by pressure sensors fitted to the cockpit door that will respond to any excessive force as terrorists try to break into the flight deck. Once triggered, no one on board will be able to deactivate the system. Currently, all autopilots are manually switched on and off at the discretion of pilots. A threatened airliner could be flown to a secure military base or a commercial airport, where it would touch down using existing landing aids known as 'autoland function'.'"
