Flying over water still is one of the greatest challenges for pilots in a single engine aircraft. In the event of an engine failure or other technical problems in most cases the only way out is ditching. The ShipTracker was developed to considerably speed up the rescue of the crew in such a situation.
During the flight the ShipTracker shows the current nearest ships. The track, distance and position of each ship is displayed and the tracker continuously calculates whether the corresponding ship can be reached in gliding flight or not. Even in the event of a complete power failure on board the aircraft, the ShipTracker can continue to function autonomously for a further 30 minutes.
