UTC Aerospace adopts use of mobile app for operations

UTC Aerospace Systems has provided pilots with the ability to adjust aircraft operations in real time with its OpsInsight app, which provides aircraft data and analytics, the company said.

The company said the mobile app enables pilots to access intelligent analytics wherever they are, adjusting aircraft operations based on real-time data. By providing immediate access to live data, OpsInsight can lead to cost and time savings for airlines by increasing the opportunity for improved fuel consumption, on-time departures and arrivals, and the elimination of paper-based processes.

OpsInsight is part of a suite of applications that UTC Aerospace Systems developed for its Aircraft Interface Device (AID) and Tablet Interface Module (TIM).

OpsInsight, the latest application in the company´s suite, will soon undergo in-flight trials with other airlines to complete functionality testing of the app as an end-to-end solution by connecting UTC Aerospace Systems´ aircraft data management (ADM) system and OpsInsight with airline back-office information technology and management systems.

UTC Aerospace Systems, a division of United Technologies Corp (NYSE: UTX) designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries.
