JDA, Western Avionics and Aerobytes Form Flight Data Monitor Program Partnership

11-Mar-2011 | News-Press Release

Bethesda, Maryland – JDA Aviation Technology Solutions (JDA), Western Avionics and Aerobytes today announced a partnership to provide a turn-key Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) and Flight Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA) solution for air carriers and helicopter operators.

The team’s solution includes FDM/FOQA program implementation, training and support, hardware and software provided by Western Avionics’ Aircraft Real time Information System (ARTIS) and Aerobytes’ FDM/FOQA Software, respectively.  

The ARTIS hardware monitors, logs and transmits aircraft data through a Web-based flight following system. Flight data is collected and made available through secure hosted servers. ARTIS is compact and lightweight and interfaces with the Aerobytes’ software to provide the total FDM/FOQA solution.

The Aerobytes’ FOQA Software is the most advanced and fully specified FOQA software available. No other product provides as many standard integrated features, and no other product provides equivalent levels of automation. As a result, users spend much  less time spent managing data.

Dr. Tom Longridge, the former FAA FDM/FOQA program director and foremost expert with more than 20 years FOQA experience, will lead the implementation and training component provided by JDA.

To learn more about the JDA/Western Avionics/Aerobytes FDM/FOQA solution contact Bill Norwood, JDA Vice President Products and Technology at 301-941-1460 (ext 170) or 540-825-6663, or via email to wnorwood@jdasolutions.aero.
