Aircraft reliability to receive a boost as the two companies work together to support on-board data analysis linked to an advanced troubleshooting platform through real-time bi-directional data transmission.
MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, CANADA – July 17, 2019 – FLYHT, the specialists in technology for capturing, processing, and transmitting real-time aircraft data, along with ATP Software Solutions, the leading provider of troubleshooting, reliability and defect trend analysis solutions, are pleased to announce a jointly-offered solution to improve aircraft reliability.
The two companies have joined forces to create an application that will help identify and communicate potential and existing aircraft equipment health issues more effectively – allowing for better diagnosis and subsequent repair. Referred to as an Aircraft Health Monitoring System (AHMS), it is designed to detect, alert, and automatically capture key data for diagnostics of all aspects of the aircraft, in real-time. This breakthrough helps airlines discover issues before they affect the serviceability of the aircraft, allowing more time to make necessary corrections or repairs to avoid a future flight delay or cancellation.
“This new partnership with FLYHT delivers the two things the aviation industry values most when it comes to maintenance – efficiency and accuracy”, commented Chris Lewis, Chief Operations Officer of ATP. “CaseBank’s advanced troubleshooting ecosystem coupled with the dynamic on-board data capture capabilities of FLYHT allows airlines to detect and fix emerging faults sooner than previously possible, often prior to failure”.
The unique benefits offered by this innovative AHMS application can be classified into three main groups. First, real-time monitoring always allows for the operational status of the entire fleet of aircraft to be known, with instant updates relayed as conditions change. Graphical displays also provide location and health status for each aircraft. Next, the diagnostic capabilities of the troubleshooting and analysis ecosystem allows the on-board system to automatically capture important data relevant to each fault and gives Maintenance Control the ability to explore current and historical data, send action messages, and launch troubleshooting guidance to resolve technical issues as soon as possible. Finally, the solution proactively identifies impending issues detected in the patterns of data produced by the aircraft, which have not yet affected the serviceability of the aircraft – allowing them to be identified early and maintenance recommendations to be provided, to pre-empt functional failures.
“It’s an exciting combination of capabilities,” said Tom Schmutz, CEO of FLYHT. “FLYHT offers real-time reporting of aircraft faults and the ability to query aircraft systems for diagnostic information. ATP Software Solution’s SpotLight adds the intelligent database to guide the query and diagnose the fault. A real-time problem can be identified and quantified before the aircraft even lands.”
