Dividing a transatlantic flight into two sections, we have two different types of flight activity:
High Data Rate is data which we would like in high resolution. This occurs during Sunrise, Sunset, Flight Start, and Flight End.
Low Data Rate occurs the rest of the time.
During a typical 72 hour flight, you have 1 Flight Start, 1 Flight End, 2 Sunsets, and 3 Sunrises.
|Flight Start||2 Hours|
|Flight End||3 Hours|
During a typical flight, 19 hours of High Data Rate, 53 hours of Low Data Rate.
