Advanced Drone Operations Toolkit: Accelerating the Drone Revolution

December 31, 2018

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterized by an unprecedented speed, scale and scope of technological change, with governments around the world struggling to adapt their approaches to policy and regulation in the face of these transformations. From artificial intelligence driving decision-making of autonomous controls to new materials and propulsion systems that will make flying cars a reality, ministries across the globe require the tools for creative governance that maintains the safety of the skies while enabling the increasing movement of people and goods.

Advancing Cyber Resilience in Aviation: An Industry Analysis

whitePaper | January 22, 2020

Civil aviation is an incredibly safe mode of transport. Year-on-year statistics referenced by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Annual Safety Report demonstrate this. Considering the forecast of double-digit growth over the next 20 years and the new infrastructure needed to manage capacity and services – and as indirectly evidenced by high levels of consumer confidence documented in widely available growth analysis – continued efforts today will clearly be paramount tomorrow to maintain the safety promise.

Connecting the Skies

whitePaper | November 8, 2019

The use cases for Inflight Connectivity are manifold. Market research suggests that 90% of passengers would like to connect, but less than 10% do so, as fees are high, and performance is poor. In the cabin, online credit card verification would eliminate fraud, and qualified medical assistance from the ground would avoid unnecessary diversions. Flight crews could optimize their flight path based on real time weather updates. Aircraft systems could report the need for maintenance and trigger ground crews accordingly, so that ground times can be minimized, and resources be used most efficiently. The ever-increasing demand for Inflight Connectivity is driven by several factors: the continued growth of airline passenger traffic, which is expected to double by 2035; 5-10 times higher passenger take rates of cabin Wi-Fi services than today; the amount of data generated by modern aircraft systems, which has already surpassed 1 Terabyte per flight just for the engines; other aerial vehicles that require connectivity for mission accomplishment, for example, police and rescue helicopters; and finally manned and unmanned drones (eVTOLs), which are expected to proliferate in the next decade.

Shipping Aircraft Tire Assemblies by Air

whitePaper | December 15, 2019

Serviceable tire assemblies are considered dangerous since they are typically inflated to high pressure. Essentially, when tire assemblies are shipped by air, the pressure inside the tire increases once the plane reaches altitude. This rise in pressure could cause an over-inflated tire to explode in the cargo hold and compromise the structural integrity of the aircraft. Aircraft tires that are not mounted on the rim are not considered dangerous as they are not under pressure and do not pose a safety hazard.
