GE aviation will collaborate with the companies SmartSky Networks and Mosaic ATM, dedicated to communications technologies, services and tools and to the design and development of systems to increase the capacity and efficiency of aviation, respectively, in order to build advanced air mobility (AAM) to bring thousands more aircraft into the airspace in the coming years.
These three companies will join forces to use flight management systems (FMS) based on cloud computing to improve airspace management and maintain critical flight safety controls by optimizing air traffic management (ATM).
According to GE, the cloud-based FMS will allow traffic controllers improve airspace management planning and real-time flight trajectory by expanding and optimizing available data input and processing capabilities.
This will also result minimize delays and improve environmental efficiency, helping to comply with companies’ sustainability initiatives.
“Advanced Air Mobility FMS presents unique space, power and processing requirements and GE Aviation, Mosaic ATM and SmartSky Networks, working together, have identified ways to address these challenges. By combining cloud-based and airborne FMS systems, along with a reliable low-latency network, we can address processing needs and meet critical safety standards for flight controlsaid Gary Goz, director of products, Navigation Systems, GE Aviation.
