Hacking an Airplane

Eye-opening articles on a the ability of a hacker to gain control of an auto-piloted aircraft. Automated Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) protocols have no security and the hacker uses them to find targets, exploit the aircraft’s onboard computer, and break in.

Here are some of the functions Teso showed to the HITBSecConf Amsterdam audience:

  • Please go here: A way of interacting with the plane where the user can dynamically tap locations on the map and change the plane’s course.
  • Define area: Set detailed filters related to the airplane, for example activate something when a plane is in the area of X kilometers or when it starts flying on a predefined altitude.
  • Visit ground: Crash the airplane.
  • Kiss off: Remove itself from the system.
  • Be punckish: A theatric way of alerting the pilots that something is seriously wrong – lights start flashing and alarms start buzzing.

Scary.

Okay, one more fine scale model:

Just gorgeous. Here’s a link to the full details.

Scale Models

I’m personally a big fan of fine scale modeling of anything related to transportation… trains, planes, cars, boats, etc. This 18-foot long model of the Titanic will blow your mind. It was actually commissioned by the original ship building company, Harland & Wolff.

Be sure to check out their trains and other models. That might be one of my dream jobs…

This is just incredible…

NTSB Li-Ion Review

NTSB has scheduled their review of the 787 lithium-ion batteries for April 23-24:

The hearing will focus on issues relating to the design, testing and certification of the battery system.

Boeing seems to think they are close to FAA approval of their proposed solution. Its seems like this workshop is entirely untethered from Boeing’s efforts to address the battery problem.

Dubai World Central

Some scuttle, old and new, about Dubai’s second airport, Al Maktoum International Airport (part of an aerotropilis development called Dubai World Central).

Profit for Tesla

This is great news!

Tesla said it sold more than 4,750 Model S sedans in the first quarter, up from the prior forecast of 4,500.

“There have been many car startups over the past several decades, but profitability is what makes a company real. Tesla is here to stay and keep fighting for the electric car revolution,” CEO Elon Musk said in a statement Sunday.

But this is kind of disappointing:

Instead, the few customers that ordered the 40 kWh version will receive a car with the next level up (60 kWh), but it will be “software limited” to the lower level. Those customers or future owners of the car can pay to upgrade to the longer-range battery option.

For some reason this just doesn’t sit well with me. Seems like a waste…

Doha International Delayed Again

Well this is embarassing… the non-opening of Hamad International Airport in Doha has been going on for over 5 years now.

Dreamliner Test Flights

Boeing has been doing some test flights for the 787.
