SITAOnAir has partnered with Astronics Ballard
Technology to provide an integrated product solution using their
new webCS Wireless Aircraft Communications Server along with
SITAOnAir's e-enabled application software.
This closely-integrated software and hardware
solution is designed to greatly reduce deployment complexity and
will bring even greater value to SITAOnAir's airline customers by
delivering enhanced capabilities and operational efficiencies.
The 'smart core' brings together the vast
connected aircraft data collected by SITAOnAir's e-Aircraft
DataCapture solutions for cockpit, cabin, and aircraft operations.
It then distributes this SITAOnAir-processed data onboard using
Astronics Ballard Technology's flexible webCS, a smart
AID/server/router that securely bridges avionics data with wired
and wireless networks in a single compact box.
Dominique El Bez, SITAOnAir Vice President,
Product and Strategy, said "Our new partnership marks an
evolution in SITAOnAir's e-enablement strategy and is a true
hallmark of the connected aircraft age. The arrival of our smart
core for an intuitive, integrated connected aircraft reinforces
SITAOnAir's pioneering open platforms vision, by encompassing
complete, flexible and scalable aircraft data management solutions
both onboard and on the ground."
SITAOnAir already plays a central airline
e-enablement and data management role, in an age where the volume
of data generated by aircraft has sky-rocketed from five
parameters in 1958, to more than 200,000 today.
SITAOnAir last year launched its
pioneering e-Aircraft DataCapture solution – a result of the company's
collaboration with Air France to deliver 'virtual black box'
flight recording solutions for automatic data collection.
Today's offering of an integrated product will
further enhance airline customers' data management approach. The
combination of SITAOnAir's established portfolio of passenger,
crew and flight operations solutions with Astronics Ballard
Technology's innovative hardware and strong technical expertise in
the area of aircraft avionics interfacing, will form a central
pillar of airlines' connectivity and e-enablement strategies,
delivered to airlines as a managed service.
