Iris program will make air traffic more efficient
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency (ESA) introduces the Iris program, a satellite-based communication system that will revolutionize air traffic management.
According to the ESA, Iris will provide a secure text-based data link between pilots and air traffic control networks using satellite technology.
By helping pilots fly the fastest routes, Iris will make air travel more efficient by increasing productivity and saving fuel, which will also significantly reduce air pollution.
