Serving as the launch partner for SITAONAIR’s e-Aircraft DataHub, Rolls-Royce has adopted the new neutral aircraft data management service.
Capable of compiling key aviation data related to the operation of a modern aircraft, the new platform features tools beneficial for both airlines and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Pierre-Yves Benain, portfolio Head e-Aircraft, SITAONAIR, says: “Our e-Aircraft DataHub service helps navigate the complex ocean of connected aircraft data, and identifies truly actionable insights for OEMs and their airline customers alike.
“By acting as a secure, neutral data-broker between an OEM and an airline, SITAONAIR keeps the control and ownership of aircraft data firmly in the airline’s hands, while also providing OEMs with greater insight to drive mutually-beneficial enhancements of their products. No other solution on the market puts airlines in control of their data sharing with third parties in this way.”
The cloud-based data-brokering service enables airlines to share selected aircraft data from fleets with a variety of aircraft models and formats with their respective OEM.
Collecting the airline’s authorised raw data, SITAONAIR e-Aircraft DataHub is then able to classify, decode, store and send the information data pack to the carrier’s OEM.
Nick Ward, Rolls-Royce head of Product Management, Servitisation and User Experience, says: “Having extensively trialled SITAONAIR’s e-Aircraft DataHub in development, we can attest to its effectiveness. This is a powerful data solution, enabling us to work with valued airline customers to navigate and extract greater value from aircraft data, in a trusted way, to help improve aircraft availability and minimize operational costs.”
