Turkish scientist develops software program to keep away from turbulence on planes

A Turkish scientist has developed software program that warns the pilot earlier than the aircraft enters turbulence and directs it to the most secure new route.

Scientist Çiğdem İlgün, who can be a lecturer at Bahçeşehir College’s Division of Physics, acknowledged that she has been engaged on the mission for 5 years.

İlgün expressed that due to the software program named “CAFA CHIP,” turbulence, the fearful dream of airplane journey, will probably be a factor of the previous.

“At the moment, present techniques attempt to detect turbulence with radar and pilot expertise, however it’s not sufficient. Open-air turbulence is a state of affairs that may develop instantaneously and radar detection could be very tough. CAFA CHIP detects and warns about turbulence by photon lights by calculating all climate occasions earlier than getting into the turbulence. It determines various routes to direct the plane to the suitable route routinely,” she defined.

She mentioned that airline firms confirmed nice curiosity within the mission and plenty of firms have began buying to check this technique.

Stating that she made the primary profitable software program on the earth on this area and patented it, İlgün mentioned that Canada Waterloo College and a gaggle of traders have been and supplied all monetary assist.

Noting that the software program was initially used solely on passenger planes, she mentioned that she’s going to work to make sure that fighter jets, cargo planes, UCAVs and small planes may even have the ability to use this technique quickly.

İlgün acknowledged that the primary launch of the system will probably be held in Istanbul on April 30 and that it is going to be marketed everywhere in the world.

“We intention for Türkiye to be a key nation and a middle of attraction for the event of this expertise,” she added.
