Satcom Direct has integrated the Polaris Aero FlightRisk risk analysis system into its PreFlight module of the SD Pro digital flight operations platform.
Customers of SD and Polaris Aero have immediate access to the full scope of the multiple data source risk assessment and mitigation advisories generated by FlightRisk directly from the SD scheduling PreFlight module. As scheduled flight data is input into SD PreFlight it automatically transfers to the Polaris FlightRisk tool. It claims the information exchange returns immediate, validated mission critical information, which is displayed in the SD PreFlight module.
With the risk analysis the flight operations team can make informed decisions about any necessary flight plan modifications. Users can switch to the Polaris FlightRisk interface with a single click for in-depth analysis about any hazards identified and further recommendations for risk mitigation. To support the integration and ensure users maximise the full scope of the FlightRisk tool, education and training is available to all SD customers via workshops, training videos and online manuals.
“With this alliance we are harnessing the power of data management to deliver crucial, trustworthy information directly to the flight department and crew. The ability to access this repository of information through a single platform improves efficiencies, while providing real-time risk analysis to underpin critical decision making. This enhances safety and situational awareness, which is vital in today's dynamic aviation landscape,” says Jim Jensen, founder and CEO, Satcom Direct.
Chris Connor, CEO of Polaris Aero adds: “The ability to immediately analyse risk based on specific missions, as entered into the SD PreFlight module, is invaluable across the flight department. The multiple data points relating to pilot, environment, airfield and aircraft ensure a comprehensive hazard assessment. This objective analysis allows our mutual customers to review detailed recommendations about necessary flight planning modifications from a single dashboard. Our alliance with SD reduces pilot workload, which results in safer skies for all.”
