TATV NEWSROUND: March 4 - Technology leaps in air traffic management

Posted 4 March 2021 · Add Comment

This week's Newsround - the programme that keeps you up to date with the aerospace and defence highlights and insights from Africa, the Middle East and India – brings news of technology leaps in air traffic management in Africa and the Middle East; sees signs of recovery with training revival in India and the Gulf.

We look back at last week’s successful IDEX show – the first fully “live” aerospace and defence event in almost a year and we hear from Faisal Al Bannai the CEO of Edge the UAE defence conglomerate about the company’s rise in fortunes since it formed just over a year ago.

Cleanliness is a theme in a special report from Jill Stockbridge who has looked at sprucing up airliners and business jets to instil confidence in passengers – but is it enough? Paul Chen’s of VX Consulting, who has been checking out cabin cleanliness has his doubts.

And when we are up in the air, what do we want? It turns out it the same as we want at home – decent connectivity.  Technology editor Steve Nichols finds out from Honeywell just why K-A band could be the answer.

And for the future? Electric aircraft are a must. We watch Rolls-Royce make the start of a record-breaking plan to prove it.
