SmartSky is launching the Skytelligence™ technology framework as an integrated body of tools and resources for use by aerospace apps developers, suppliers, and operators. This framework allows for the creation and operation of network-enabled applications that are efficient, effective, and safe. Utilizing this embedded expertise enables innovations in managing aircraft and airspace operations over the SmartSky 4G LTE network. Accessing Skytelligence enables timely connections to relevant data aggregated from multiple sources, as well as provides access to patented systems and methods.
Key benefits to using Skytelligence:
- Service Oriented Architecture uses APIs to facilitate the development of apps and services
- Consolidates multiple data sources and advanced algorithms for collaboration and interoperability
- Permits access to patented methods and systems for flight path trajectory, airspace modeling and more
- Open framework allows for innovations to be applied to any aviation connectivity network
Skytelligence helps transform data into actionable knowledge to enhance situational awareness for the crew, resulting in improved efficiencies, increased mission effectiveness, and enhanced safety. EFB applications can use this technology framework to enable five-dimensional (latitude, longitude, altitude, current time, and future time on the aircraft’s route) trajectory-based operations applications and services to optimize fuel burns, save flight time, and account in real-time for air traffic, airspace, and weather dynamics.
