Dont know if this is acceptable here, but since it is all about aircraft and also about the MH370, I thought it may be a good place to put it. Please
move somewhere else if necessary.
Due to the Malaysian airlines MH370 event
we now know that countries will do anything
BUT reveal their radar data. Even if their own people are lost and probably missing presumed dead.
It has been very difficult for Malaysia to extract the radar data from countries such as China, USA, Australia, India, etc. They need this data to
track the flight path of MH370 from the time it went missing until the time it either crashed or landed and countries are afraid to reveal the
strengths and weaknesses of their radar systems which would be obvious from the radar data.
Ok, how about this as the seed for an idea for a global plane watch database. Please add you thoughts and ideas although this needs to be a global
initiative not a regional one.
Each country or airline should contributes an amount of money for each plane they have in their fleet into a central 'pot' which is used to receive
radar civilian plane identity locations within x miles/Km from a radar but in a particular format which can be read by everyone. This money goes to
pay for hardware & personnel to run the central location 24/7. The database would be open to subscribing countries and run by a mutually agreed
plane hex code
plane call sign
That way, if you have a radar which can measure more than this you can submit more detailed data entries if you want to, but there should be a minimum
data requirement. (US, Australia,China,India) If the x (above) is the lowest common denominator for radars (like primary radar range) then everyone
wll be happy. It may not be a wonderful system but at least it would have data available from all parties in the event of a missing plane. The data
would have to come in in real-time so there was no delay and could come in from satellites too.
Then if this data was not detailed enough, the investigators could ask one of the countries with better systems to contribute their data like they
asked for the MH370 event.
Would that work? Would it be acceptable to both do the job of identifying the position etc of each aircraft and being acceptable to every country?
