Comments on Onboard Threat Detection System For Big Brother Airlines
This system seems a bit too intrusive, and probably would not make me feel more secure while flying. (Read
the complete story)
|"The SAFEE project has a number of other features in development:
'The non-hijackable aircraft's features include computer systems designed to spot suspicious passenger behaviour and a collision avoidance system that can correct the aircraft's trajectory to prevent it being steered into a building or mountain. The researchers are even investigating the possibility of developing an on-board computer that through the use of sophisticated biometric systems could identify a hijacker attempting to take control of the aircraft and guide the aircraft to the nearest airport.
In addition, the SAFEE programme includes a chip based system which will match passengers to luggage, a biometric camera at check-in to verify passenger identity, an electronic nose to sniff out explosives before boarding and a secure cockpit biometric system which will recognise crew members by their fingerprints and check if they are opening the cockpit under duress.'
