Inflight connectivity provider SmartSky Networks has partnered with Mosaic ATM to further enhance its Skytelligence open marketplace and framework infrastructure to connect aviation applications and services developers. The expanded Skytelligence allows for the development of new data and services products to improve the efficiency of aviation operations.
SmartSky's open interface and integration environment now includes more ways to optimise and improve the flight experience for every aviation-related company, from airlines and aircraft owners to data managers and developers.
“To catalyse aviation's digital transformation, our Skytelligence open marketplace enables companies to access and share aviation, flight, weather data and operations data,” comments chairman and CEO Haynes Griffin. “Mosaic is a critical partner in the creation of this application development infrastructure.”
Mosaic ATM CEO Chris Brinton adds: “SmartSky's patented system for five-dimensional trajectory optimisation with continuous re-planning is an industry breakthrough, and accessing this capability via a software as a service model is a game-changer. This feature allows developers to take advantage of the combination of several data sources and services, including weather and traffic constraints, to quickly and cost-effectively build enhanced services.”
Mosaic has provided SmartSky with expertise to expand upon and refine the Skytelligence concept, including unique insights for data processing, transformation and fusion techniques to increase Skytelligence's data offering. SmartSky and Mosaic will continue to collaborate to develop applications and services related to airport data, convective weather data, navigation aids and more.
Using Skytelligence is designed to reduce development investment and accelerate outcomes while optimising operations.
