Viraf S. Kapadia, CEO and Chairman of Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. Talks about the company’s real-time aircraft monitoring system.We have six patents around the world. Basically Star Navigation is a real-time monitoring system for aircraft health. As well as tracking of aircraft, which is proactive not reactive like the black box. We tell you before things go bad, there is deterioration in aircraft functions, engine and others. So they can do proper maintenance, they can service their craft better. If there is an issue with a particular flight it can be looked after at the next stop. If it’s an immediate issue we can even point it out by sending any parameter. Which is breached to the ground and they can do something from the ground. However, maybe there is an issue that cannot be handled like MH370 or Air France 447 at least. We would have known the location if our system was on board. We want to make contribution to airline safety at the same time, savings for Airlines. Also looking at capturing as much as possible of the retrofit market. And bring the older aircraft which are about 30,000 aircraft in the world or more even to the same level. As the Dreamliner Boeing 787. Working with one of the top five aviation manufacturers in the world.
