1. Is an iPad app for aviators that displays AIS (Ship position) data world wide.
2. Will transmit to all ships in range a continuous computer generated voice distress message that updates critical flight information every 3 minutes
3. Activates an alarm on the bridge of all deep water vessels, and sends a distress text data message to all ships within VHF range using DSC. Range is proportional to altitude. (This data function is pending FCC approval).
4. Reduces pilot task saturation during a water landing
5. Reduces time of rescue
6. Increases pilot situational awareness
7. Expands ditching procedures to include ditching at night, in low visibility or low ceiling conditions
8. Allows aircraft automation to fly an instrument approach to a ditching if aircraft is so equipped.
9. If aircraft has weather radar will provide a method for ship location confirmation in real time.

Ergo Blue should be a part of any overwater flight since it plans for the worst case scenario and complies with SMS protocols.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
