NEW SPIDERTRACKS ACTIVE FLIGHT TRACKING, AND MORE
For over two years, Lockheed Martin has been
investing heavily to develop new applications to bring to its Flight
Services, seeking to create what it hopes will be a significantly more
useful platform for pilots, but pilots are no longer the only direct
users the company targets.
According to Jim Derr, head of flight
services, the company plans to develop its available services over time
from basic to all encompassing. "It's a reaction to technology," Derr
says, "now that smartphones, iPads and tablets are the reality, our
systems have to continue to progress." Some of those advances will
become apparent to pilots, soon; others may be far less obvious. Some
pilots may not even be aware of the benefits they're receiving from
Lockheed's systems. And, if that's the case, Derr says it won't
necessarily be a bad thing. Actually, it might be good.
