Plane crashes due to Bluetooth Snooping
When I read this article, posted earlier: ‘Fly-by-wireless’ plane takes to the air, I couldn’t stop imagining what would happen if someone would try to play with his laptop’s bluetooth sniffer/snooper/flooder/etc while this plane was in the air, or even during take-off.
What disturbs me even more is this line: But Santos and colleagues are working on this. She says Bluetooth is already fairly resistant to disruption as it is designed to guarantee a certain minimum data stream will always get through. “It has mechanisms for dealing with interference,” she says., ha? what? if I am jamming/blocking/etc there is no way for you to get ANY data through, that is what jamming means, further, can you navigate a plane with MINIMUM wires? no you need them all, you have redundancy, but you can’t cope with MINIMUM wires, they are either there, or not.
I hope this sort this fiasco before anyone decides to prove that bluetooth jamming on an airplane is just as lethal as placing a bomb on the plane.
