Thumbs up The Ohio State University developing new 21st century ATC system.

The Ohio State University is working to improve something many of us take for granted: Air traffic control. The university is collecting data for what promises to be the "next generation" of aviation.

Last week, 10 Investigates revealed why members of Congress say the nation's air traffic control system is at a “breaking point.” 10TV discovered a severe shortage of controllers around the country and alarming and dangerous discipline reports.

OSU's aviation department is working on a long-term solution. Air traffic control systems now work on outdated ground-based technology.

An average smartphone has more ways to communicate than the current plane guidance system. That's why OSU is helping to pioneer a new system. It would use GPS, texting and data sharing between aircraft to get planes to their destinations quicker and safer.

It would use GPS
This couldn't come out any sooner. I would love to see GPS disappear in favor of a more reliable, jam proof and no need for a good signal strength.

I would hate to see GPS go away. It's not going to happen anytime soon thankfully. It's more likely to see the system evolve / augmented moving forward.
