AirSatOne Announces Cell Phone Detector for Air Carriers.
The Wolfhound-PRO™ AVN is designed to detect and locate cell phone signals on board aircraft allowing air carriers to eliminate interference issues with navigation and communication equipment especially during sterile cockpit operations.
“Airline employees are tasked with making sure electronic devices are turned off in flight due to safety concerns. Transmitting device such as cell phones is an increased concern because they can interrupt the normal operation of key cockpit instruments. Any given flight can have multiple cell phone devices transmitting radio signals because they were left on intentionally or inadvertently. This becomes a serious problem during an approach to landing in inclement weather with zero viability where the pilots of the aircraft need to rely on the instruments that are susceptible to interference. To offer a solution to the problem AirSatOne teamed up with BVS because of their long of history of success with cell phone detection devices. As a result we have developed the Wolfhound-PRO™
Scott Schober, BVS President and CEO, commented, "We are excited to partner with AirSatOne in offering a tailored test solution to the avionics industry with the release of the Wolfhound Pro AVN. AirSatOne can now offer an effective solution that will manage the risk of transmitting cell phones aboard aircraft. The Wolfhound Pro AVN will detect and locate cell phone transmissions that could be a source of potential interference to avionic navigation and communication instruments."
