Larry Koncelik, a NY attorney, has patented a remotely controlled, pilot override device he believes will greatly expedite governmentís ability to address public concerns about prevention of another terrorist attack like one New York City experienced on September 11, 2001.
According to Lawrence Koncelik, inventor, public safety is currently being compromised because search for a solution has become little more than an academic exercise. "Far too much time is being devoted to creation of three dimensional, soft wall corridors when a far simpler solution is available," he says.
For uninformed, federally funded Soft Walls Project has been a central focus of discussion since early 2002. In its simplest form, a "soft wall" is a term used to describe a buffer separating flight corridors and no fly zones. Autopilot systems would be programmed to prevent a pilot from flying into restricted airspace.
Koncelik likens current preoccupation with The Soft Walls Project to that which prevailed when nation was pursuing Star Wars Missile Defense initiative. "We didnít need to spend hundreds of millions of dollars pursuing Star Wars. No intercontinental ballistic missile can be launched without our knowing within a matter of a minutes that it is airborne and we could have very easily stationed aircraft, specifically U2s and SR71s, equipped with missiles to shoot them down before they reach their targets," he says.
