LEESBURG, VIRGINIA – One of the reasons Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 hasn’t been found is because the plane couldn’t be tracked continuously over the ocean. One company now plans to deploy space based tracking payloads so that 100% of the earth is track able and no plane will ever be “lost” again. 66 satellites orbiting the planet, the Iridium NEXT constellation, could change the way we fly.  Deployment begins in December as they replace old satellites already in place. The NEXT satellites will carry a payload to receive an airplane’s transponder signal every few seconds.
