LSBC challenges the Entrepreneurs: Manage the Aviation Traffic!
Aviation Traffic is a matter of concern and aviation accidents are truly tragic. Consequently, the operation of Emergency Location Transmitters set on the airplanes has been improving with the lessons learned from aviation accidents. Indeed, the Earth Observation (EO) Scientists widely wish to use the EO data to manage the rich diversity of natural resources of our mother planet Earth. At the Luxembourg Slovenian Business Club (LSBC), the Author brightly believes that humanity can find smarter solutions to manage the aviation traffic. Accordingly, operating in Luxembourg, the LSBC engages in exploring the possibilities with opportunities in the healthy heart of Europe. As a matter of fact, the EO entrepreneurs are challenged to embark on a career and empower humanity with sustainability. Thus, the LSBC will strongly support entrepreneurs to transcend in one of the massive markets in Luxembourg.
Accordingly, as shown in Fig. 1., we have a super sharp satellite radar picture of the Suvarnabhumi Airport, Thailand. Also, in the radar image, we can distinctively distinguish the elements of an Airport. Remarkably, the Aviation Traffic forecasts for the year 2020 changed due to the impact of the international crisis. Indeed, the Author boldly believes that the Aviation Traffic recorded for the year 2019 was definitely higher. According to the Author and his independent research work in Space Traffic Management, there has to be an increase in general traffic in the atmosphere once orbital travels integrate with modern aviation. Accordingly, the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Images will be of great importance to track inbound and outbound activities of airports and spaceports. Thus, the Author aims to focus on ‘Environmental Protection (Sustainable Moon, 2019)’ while introducing the concept of a ‘Sustainable Earth’.
SAR Polarimetry – Miniature Signature
In our last research work ‘LSBC welcomes the Sentinel-6 Satellite: Observe our Mother Planet Earth!’, we concluded that humanity strongly stands to make comprehensively confident commitments with advancing technology. Consequently, the Author understands that the Aviation Traffic related accidents and incidents might be infrequent events but the risk factor varies over a wide-ranging spectrum from very low to very high (Lukowski et al., 2004). In fact, humanity learned the importance of detecting crashed aircraft and executing Search and Rescue Operations with satellite data (Lukowski, T. I., Charbonneau, F. J., et al., 2004). Indeed, the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data can be utilized to enhance the navigational capabilities (Lukowski, T. I., and Charbonneau, F. J., 2002). Thus, the EO data augments the analysis of both the atmospheric and environmental ecosystems while protecting natural resources.
Concept and Application
Globally, remarkable researchers and sagacious scientists in connected countries are distinctively developing tangent techniques to analyse and use the EO data for rich research and development of scientific applications and space technology (Evans, D., et al., 1988). In fact, a specific set of scientific parameters can be focused for addressing the challenge of managing the aviation traffic. Indeed, smooth surfaces like the strips of hard ground along which an aircraft take offs and lands always appear dark in the radar images. Accordingly, the identification of elements like the type of aircrafts, the tall towers at the spaceports, and other features on the ground is getting easier to interpret in super high-resolution radar images. Consequently, the Author fundamentally focuses on ‘Sustainability for Society’ to drive socio-economic growth of humanity. Hence, the LSBC is ready to strongly support visionaries.
Humanity’s most stupendous strength is to get a profoundly persistent vision of our mother planet Earth. Consequently, the advancing space technology allows humankind to produce viable visions of our dear neighbor Moon and other celestial bodies and interstellar matter in our great Galaxy and ultimate Universe. As a matter of fact, humanity’s habit to inhabit our Earth confidently allows humankind to search for any signs of the existence of the second mother planet Earth. As a result, humankind is responsible to use the Earth Observation data to address societal challenges and augment global environmental sustainability.
