In the frame of the Skywise data avionics platform, an end-to-end prototype was developed, certified and deployed in airlines, with the objective to demonstrate the value of aircraft data. This on-board connectivity system is composed of existing flight test means to acquire massive data on board and of standard industrial components to transmit data directly to Airbus data lakes after each landing via standard 4G infrastructure.
These data were then analysed by a Smart Data Analytics plateau to develop algorithms, in order to improve maturity of the aircraft or give recommendations to better operate the aircraft. Thanks to a strong commitment and a trans-functional and trans-national team work, it has been possible to design, manufacture and certify the Skywise-demonstrator in a very short time frame (five months). The system has been installed on in-service aircraft by the team and is operating in real airline operations. Since its entry into service in December 2016, the demonstrator has sent over 10 Terabytes (TB) of in-service data from five airlines worldwide. More than 100 algorithms have been developed and validated by Airlines, thus demonstrating the value of aircraft data analysis.
