Researchers at Purdue University have developed a technology that utilizes aircraft transponder data to determine when an aircraft operation has occurred. This technology is capable of acquiring more data than conventional methods. Combined with a specialized estimation algorithm, the result is valuable, accurate operational metrics and a much greater range of operational statistics for management personnel. This technology includes a computer, radio transponder, and Wi-Fi communications link to transmit information to estimation software.

Advantages:
-1090 MHz signals are received passively
-Improved operations measurement accuracy

Potential Applications:
-Airports
-Radio transponders
-Air traffic control tools
