Service/ system concept
STAP ULD-Watcher system uses positioning data from satellite and from local systems. It’s combining transponder data from the aircraft with other local available environment data from the airport. The core system which will be mounted in the ULD uses different sensors (temperature, moisture, shock, magnetic fields, radar etc.) for monitoring the ULD internally. A patented switching on/off technology which is available at STAP fulfils the technical aspects of the systems. Selecting the best of available communication structures and optimized energy consumption with energy harvesting technologies will round up the system and enables a universal use in all airports, worldwide.
