MIT -- Money In Technology

Just a little blurb from CNET about what the boys in Massachusetts are up to.

MIT algorithm could help prevent midair collisions

”MIT researchers are working on an algorithm that could help reduce the likelihood of airplane collisions in the sky, part of work to overhaul the FAA air traffic system.

The FAA's NextGen overhaul mandates that by 2020 all commercial aircraft broadcast GPS coordinates, which would be more accurate than ground-based radar.”

In case the angle hasn’t hit you yet, think drones.
