Can the world be imagined without the aviation industries? The answer is very simple, and it is NO. With the advancement of lifestyles of human beings, the usage of aircrafts has now become very common. It helps in saving time a lot and in this era, time is the most important treasure which everyone wants to grab.
NASA has come up with an app that helps in saving a great amount of fuel, reducing carbon emission and saving time for the passengers.
Information on the app
According to the information of Endgadget, this advanced technological app is stored in a tablet. The best and most important thing of this app is that there is no requirement for any kind of change in the roles and settings of the aviation. Neither the roles of ground crew nor the roles of pilots need to be changed. The technology is very simple and can be implemented in a very simple manner.
Working process of the app
The app is named as TAP which is the short form of Traffic Aware Planner. The app looks for the current position of the flight and helps in finding the best, safe and shortest route to the destination, saving time and money to a large extent. Added to this, this app makes different strategies on the awareness of air traffic which is also known as TASAR ( Traffic Aware Strategic Aircrew Requests). The best thing of this is the app is that it directly gets connected with the information hub of aircraft avionics. TAP judges the wind flow very efficiently, thus leading to judge the best route for the flights and increasing the efficiency of the engine.
Present usage of TAP
Currently, this app is being used by some airline companies like Virgin America, Alaska flights and many more. The contract is made for around three years. Added to these things, TAP connects very easily to the ADS-B, scanning the nearby areas of the air traffic, thus reducing the chance for crashes.
Last but not the least!
This small app is based on advanced technology and is loaded with many features. One of the best things is that it provides the current weather condition of the surrounding very accurately. The only requirement for TAP is an internet connection.
