The crash of Air France Flight 447 (AF447) off the coast of Brazil in June 2009 and the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370) in the southern Indian Ocean in March 2014 highlight several challenges authorities may face in locating aircraft in distress and recovering flight recorders. In response to these aviation accidents, government accident investigators, international organisations, and industry have offered proposals that aim to enhance oceanic flight tracking and flight data recovery on a global scale. Given the implications for the U.S. commercial fleet, it is essential that the Congress understand the strengths and weaknesses of these proposals. This book describes the challenges in tracking aircraft and recovering flight data highlighted by recent commercial aviation accidents over oceanic regions; government and industry proposals to enhance aircraft tracking, and how aviation stakeholders view their strengths and weaknesses; and government and industry proposals to enhance the recovery of flight data, and how aviation stakeholders view the proposals strengths and weaknesses.

"The AF447 and MH370 disasters have raised questions about why authorities have been unable to locate passenger aircraft. In response to these aviation accidents, government accident investigators, international organizations, and industry have offered proposals that aim to enhance oceanic flight tracking and flight data recovery on a global scale. Given the implications for the U.S. commercial fleet, it is essential that the Congress understand the strengths and weaknesses of these proposals. GAO was asked to review efforts to enhance aircraft tracking and flight data recovery. This report describes (1) the challenges in tracking aircraft and recovering flight data highlighted by recent commercial aviation accidents over oceanic regions; (2) government and industry proposals to enhance aircraft tracking, and how aviation stakeholders view their strengths and weaknesses; and (3) government and industry proposals to enhance the recovery of flight data, and how aviation stakeholders view the proposals' strengths and weaknesses. GAO reviewed reports by government accident investigators and others, and technology presentations by avionics manufacturers, including current cost data, which was not available in all cases. GAO also interviewed 21 aviation stakeholders, including FAA, the National Transportation Safety Board, and industry, selected based on their expertise in aviation technology and flight operations. FAA and NTSB provided technical comments on a draft of this report, which were incorporated as appropriate."--Highlights page.

Decades of continuous efforts to address known hazards in the national airspace system (NAS) and to respond to issues illuminated by analysis of incidents and accidents have made commercial airlines the safest mode of transportation. The task of maintaining a high level of safety for commercial airlines is complicated by the dynamic nature of the NAS. The number of flights by commercial transports is increasing; air traffic control systems and procedures are being modernized to increase the capacity and efficiency of the NAS; increasingly autonomous systems are being developed for aircraft and ground systems, and small aircraftâ€"most notably unmanned aircraft systemsâ€"are becoming much more prevalent. As the NAS evolves to accommodate these changes, aviation safety programs will also need to evolve to ensure that changes to the NAS do not inadvertently introduce new risks. Real-time system-wide safety assurance (RSSA) is one of six focus areas for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) aeronautics program. NASA envisions that an RSSA system would provide a continuum of information, analysis, and assessment that supports awareness and action to mitigate risks to safety. Maintaining the safety of the NAS as it evolves will require a wide range of safety systems and practices, some of which are already in place and many of which need to be developed. This report identifies challenges to establishing an RSSA system and the high-priority research that should be implemented by NASA and other interested parties in government, industry, and academia to expedite development of such a system.

Air traffic controllers need advanced information and automated systems to provide a safe environment for everyone traveling by plane. One of the primary challenges in developing training for automated systems is to determine how much a trainee will need to know about the underlying technologies to use automation safely and efficiently. To ensure safety and success, task analysis techniques should be used as the basis of the design for training in automated systems in the aviation and aerospace industries. Automated Systems in the Aviation and Aerospace Industries is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on the application of underlying technologies used to enforce automation safety and efficiency. While highlighting topics such as expert systems, text mining, and human-machine interface, this publication explores the concept of constructing navigation algorithms, based on the use of video information and the methods of the estimation of the availability and accuracy parameters of satellite navigation. This book is ideal for aviation professionals, researchers, and managers seeking current research on information technology used to reduce the risk involved in aviation.
