Tech Mahindra signed an agreement with Bombardier Commercial Aircraft to develop the Aircraft Ground Support System (AGSS) for Bombardier’s Aircraft Health Management System (AHMS) for the C Series family of aircraft.
The AGSS will facilitate real-time and post-flight recorded data management, fault notification and diagnostic reporting.
By leveraging the large amount of data recorded and transmitted from C Series aircraft, the AHMS will allow operators to make sound decisions on aircraft performance and maintenance, said Bombardier in a statement.
“Our digital tools will support efficient analysis of the data, so that it can be quickly captured and shared with operators,” said Tech Mahindra’s North America head Lakshmanan Chidambaram.
“Together with Tech Mahindra, we are developing a system that will optimize aircraft availability and lower maintenance costs,” said Bombardier Commercial Aircraft’s vice president, C Series Programme Rob Dewar.
“Tech Mahindra’s digital solutions are another key component in our AHMS as we approach entry into service and implement start-up strategies that will support our C Series aircraft operators,” said Bombardier Commercial Aircraft vice president and general manager, customer services, Todd Young.
Tech Mahindra’s digital solutions for the AHMS will leverage cutting-edge cloud computing, sensor, Internet of Things (IOT) and Big Data technologies to perform deep analytics of the aircraft’s health status.
