Like GSM in order for the satellite internet to work all transmissions from various ground stations must arrive in sync. Therefore the ground transceiver must know the exact range to the satellite.
The problem as you correctly point out is that we would not have an exact position for the satellite.
You could potentially model this quite accurately and transmit the ephemeris data out of band.
Also you can have fixed ground stations verifying the exact position of each satellite the same way GPS does but have the clocks on the ground.
It will be clunky and probably never make it into consumer GPS but if what you want is a solution for the military in case we go to war with France then probably it will do the job
DAB has way less bandwidth than FM and many many stations are mono! So it's more like comparing CD to MP3.
DAB is *potentially* better quality than FM but that is not what they did.
I reckon most radio listening happens in cars these days. Well over 50% of which can not receive DAB
If it ends up that by contracting I have the same take home pay as I would have as an employee with none of the benefits then the answer is simple: Ill just get a permanent role.
by extension the number of people contracting will go down and therefore the day rates will go up. Also of course for perm salaries will go down.
We will reach some new equilibrium with some % fewer contractors working at higher day rates and more competition for perm roles at a lower salary.
It is capable of flying safely but it would not get a transport category certification because the relationship between yoke angle and rate of climb would not be linear.
Yes, the primary reason was to prevent need to retrain pilots, but it would have been a requirement anyway for certification
If you also have accurate accelerometers you could dead reckon.
You would still need the occasional* reference, perhaps from land based systems
*how occasional depends on the accuracy of your clock and accelerometers.
I believe inertial navigation is still one input to commercial aircraft navigation systems
There is some benefit.
You have a fighting chance of catching people flying a drone without a license, because their operations would always be illegal not just near airports.
Also making it illegal to sell one to an unlicensed individual will help.
It would reduce the number of idiots but not to 0.
>The problem for HMRC is then that they want to stop contractors using those rules - BUT NOT >REMOVE THOSE RULES for the big boys.
Exactly, and they would not have to put much of a dent in those rules to get the additional income they are after. I reckon if they increased Dividend tax by 1% they would make much more and be unambiguous.
I don't see how you get to 20%
outside IR35 contractors pay 19% corporation tax and 7.5% dividend tax = 26.5%
Inside IR35 20% income tax 12% NI = 32% (Because the salary is a deductible expense for the company)
so far only 5.5% worse off.
Now there is the matter of 13.5% Employer contributions but if the responsibility movs to the employer and they determine that the contractor is inside then they can pay the Employer NI themselves just like they do for all there other employees.
Don't panic, Rates will just go up, same as they do now for inside working.

What an idiot
I was wondering about the "feature" of the original system that switched between AoA sensors after each flight.
I can think of no technical reason to do this. It introduces instability and difficult to diagnose faults.
The only thing I can think of is that it would let me draw a line from both AoA sensors to MCAS on my block diagram.
