No obstacles for airports using satellites
13 March 2017
Thanks to ESA, airports can now use satellites to identify and manage obstacles that could pose a risk to flight safety.
Of the 48,000 airports around the globe, only about a quarter can allow aircraft to land in poor weather and only 500 airports have a specialist on site to pinpoint obstacles that might exceed height restrictions within flight paths.
With ESA's help, Ascend XYZ in Denmark has developed a service for airports to record potential obstacles.
