About the product:
CATS provides governance stakeholders with the infrastructure to securely coordinate and marshal airborne flights, in case of hijacking, incapacitated aircrew and major deviation from planned route.
Transport ministries, ANSPs and Airlines can now securely coordinate the fate of airborne aircraft in extreme situations, where action is required to save lives.
CATS activates the aircraft's autopilot and disables in-cockpit human override until permission is given. Once activated, a flight plan is coordinated and uploaded for execution.
If severe conditions are rectified, autopilot can be unlocked and allow capable aircrew to continue flying the aircraft as they see fit.
Unique from other solutions, there are no onboard human dependencies, where governance solutions can be applied.
