InFlight Labs Awarded Third Patent for "GADSS" ELT, SATCOM, and ADS-B Distress Tracking Systems
Inflight Labs, the industry-leading Aerospace Development Center, announced today that its third US Patent had been granted for it's; "Distress Aircraft Notification and Tracking System"; which addresses the most critical element of the GADSS mandate: "Minute-by-Minute Autonomous Distress Tracking of Aircraft."

"It is not a coincidence that our solutions closely represent what Aviation's World-Leading Organizations and many other lawmakers use as a 'checklist' for GADSS Guidelines (Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System) …we had educated many organizational leaders; starting in 2011, with our developments. And again, following the Malaysian Air 370 incident. Our input and product developments were closely evaluated and subsequently embraced as the 'GADSS checklist' for today's GADSS standards."
"Years before Malaysian Air 370 disappearance, InFlight Labs was developing an industry-wide 'autonomous distress tracking solution' for aircraft, but the industry was not ready for change…after the disappearance of Malaysian Air 370 it was a different story."
Robust Patent Position
InFlight Labs' GADSS-specific patents are:
Distress Aircraft Notification and Tracking System: (Patent 10,002,519; benefits from the 2010 patent filing) - An Autonomous Distress Tracking (ADT) System and avionics interface which detects aircraft anomalies or technical problems during flight and triggers an aircraft's onboard ELT (and emergency radio beacons) for real-time tracking of the aircraft by Search and Rescue satellites through all phases of flight in specified time intervals. Authorities can remotely activate this system over "ground-to-air"
SATCOM Distress Aircraft Tracking System: (Patent 10,163,328; benefits from the 2010 patent filing) - An ADT System and avionics interface which detects aircraft anomalies or technical problems during flight triggers an aircraft's onboard SATCOM or Space-based ADS-B transceiver/
Survival Emergency Location Transmitter Tracking System: (Patent 10,102,756; benefits from the 2010 patent filing) A Portable ADT System for locating aircraft, aircraft personnel, maritime vessel or maritime personnel which can be automatically or remotely activated during or after an aircraft or ship distress event.
Today, InFlight Labs closely monitors ICAO GADSS's mandate progress through the ICAO GADSS Advisory Group which includes such members as; Boeing, Airbus, NASA, Iridium, Inmarsat and many other airlines industry leaders.
