    These planes have a value,So do the humans on board.Too many are lost and the systems in use now to notify witness and locate these planes are not doing the job. There are millions of inventors among us.They are not all Harvard or M.I.T. graduates but they have effective solutions.The problem remains because the inventors can not get the inventions past the Harvard and M.I.T graduate gatekeepers.Does anyone consider the cost on the search for the missing passenger jet of about a year ago? A large plane does not arrive at it’s designated location . Instead of accurate information of the location of the plane we have a mystery .This is an indicator to me that there is a lack of brain power up there in high positions. They don’t want competition from anyone who has a brain the functions to specifications.
