FLARM and iwiation GmbH have started a close cooperation to drive further innovative development around aviation safety!
We are excited to share the results of the latest development at Aero 2023 at Friedrichshafen. During the podiums discussion “Collision-avoidance” further details will be shared.
FLARM is the collision avoidance system and electronic conspicuity technology used by General Aviation and UAVs. Aircraft with a FLARM system issue visual and aural warnings when on a collision course with another aircraft. FLARM uses GPS and digital radio broadcasts to communicate with other aircraft. Many FLARM devices also incorporate an ADS‑B and transponder receiver. This enables aircraft that are not yet equipped with FLARM to be detected as well. FLARM is recommended by many aviation authorities and organizations. Over 60,000 manned aircraft, or more than 50% of General Aviation in Europe, already have a FLARM-system installed.
iwiation GmbH supports international authorities in accident investigation by providing flight-path-reconstruction based on video- & witness-information, 3D real-time-visualization and human factor analysis. The root cause analysis is used for the creation of lessons learned training. The most recent development is an artificial intelligence surveillance-system to improve aviation safety for small aerodromes that logs any flight activity with the capability to trigger customized warnings.
