Baldwin Safety & Compliance now integrates event data from GE's Flight Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA) system. By harnessing the power of the GE application programming interface (API), a multitude of flight event data points will seamlessly flow into the Baldwin safety system. This data will integrate the human and machine data within the Baldwin platform to analyse, track and monitor safety events.
FOQA, also referred to as Flight Data Monitoring (FDM), is a process that routinely captures and analyses flight recorder data, ultimately enhancing flight operation's safety programmes. Many aviation operators rely on GE's patented analytics software that combines weather information, navigation and terrain data to identify safety events and measurements involving thousands of flights daily.
Founder Donald Baldwin says: “This new GE FOQA integration is another safety element to improve efficiency and takes us a step closer to realising our vision of a unified system for comprehensive safety and operations management."
Director of safety Dr Jason Starke adds: “Simplifying the safety data gathering process is important, and the additional GE FOQA data equips users with the necessary tools to delve into event investigation and tracking. The Baldwin suite of tools will seamlessly handle the imported data for reporting and analysis that can be used to review or expand key safety performance indicators and assurance charts.”
