TriaGnoSys, an expert in satellite communications, recently gave a live demonstration of its inflight 3G solution, along with its onboard communications manager.

The demonstration was given to leading European airlines, airports, manufacturers and service providers at the Airbus Cabin Test Centre in Hamburg, as part of the final stage of the ground-breaking E-Cab project.

TriaGnoSys 3G services provide a range of passenger and crew communications applications, and the communications manager controls all satellite-based passenger, cabin crew and IFE data communications to and from the aircraft during flights.

E-Cab (E-enabled Cabin and Associated Logistic for Improved Passenger Services and Operational Efficiency) sought to maximise efficiencies in air transport logistics and improve the passenger experience. It focused on the development of improved services in four different services areas: moving people through airports, passenger services, freight handling and catering services. Most importantly, E-Cab developed the technology to interconnect all four areas to increase efficiency and thereby reduce costs.

Dr Reiner Rueckwald, E-Cab Project Manager at Airbus, coordinating the project, said, The rapid growth of air transport has meant that airlines and airports are frequently confronted by technology and processes that often do not work well together. E-Cab has developed the technology to connect a range of key services, each of which will make air transport better for passengers and more efficient for airlines and airports in their own right.

The successful completion of this project paves the way for the European aviation industry to provide a step change in the passenger service it provides and the efficiencies it can achieve.

Key to the success of the cabin element of the project, which performed the demonstration in Hamburg, includes the fact that the solutions developed are all accessible through the IFE system, using any mobile or WiFi device. Real-time credit card authorisation is possible, as is live updating of IFE content using satellite communications.

Dr Rueckwald said, We have successfully proved that there are significant savings to be made, and better passenger services available, through the use of an integrated information management system.

The project partners will now start to commercialize the project developments. To that end, TriaGnoSys has included its 3G solution and WiFi payment portal in its airline product portfolio.
