WASHINGTON, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- BAE Systems has revealed details about its Centralised Aviation Data Service system used to reduce the risk of collisions in uncontrolled U.K. airspace.

The CADS system is mandated by the U.K. Ministry of Defense for all flights under 2,000 feet. It allows pilots to plan night and low-altitude flights. During a three-month trial period, the system identified a total of 31,000 potential flight path crashes.
