What’s your Vector, Victor?

Maybe a hardware issue?

Maybe a hardware issue?

The National Air Space Data Interchange Network (NADIN) crashed yesterday, delaying air travel across the US. I wonder if NADIN performs spatial processing.

NADIN is used to distribute flight plans filed by pilots before their planes depart, allowing air traffic controllers along the routes to know when planes are departing, where they are headed, the type of aircraft being flown, as well as other detailed information used to track and guide flights across U.S. airspace. The information appears on flight controllers’ screens so flights can be identified. – ComputerWorld

Or Maybe a Software Issue…
This press release from Stratus in 2005 says the system is Windows based.
