“With one touch, captured video recorded with the InFlight 911 Recorder can simultaneously redistributed to numerous FAA, DHS and related government agencies for ´shared situational awareness´ to bring numerous key resources together within minutes of an in-air emergency,” said Bekanich.
Inflight 911 Services´s other proprietary emergency communication products include: InFlight 911 Messenger; a secure 2-way messaging system that enables 2,000 character messages to be typed or selected from a pre-defined library.
