Dépèche transmise le 6 novembre 2009 par Business Wire

CALGARY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AeroMechanical Services Ltd. (“AMA”) announced today it has signed an agreement with the Aviation Recorders division of L-3 Communications to sell AMA’s real-time data communications and Internet data delivery solutions for aircraft. Together with L-3’s Flight Recorder and Electronic Flight Bag products, these AMA product and service solutions offer customers the ability to receive, record, store, monitor, transmit and analyze critical aircraft flight data, in real time when necessary, to improve both cost-effective aircraft performance and operational safety. These AMA solutions are marketed under the brand FLYHT, in conjunction with L-3’s industry leading line of Flight Data Recorders (FDRs), commonly referred to as aircraft “black boxes”.

The agreement provides for a reselling and teaming arrangement under which L-3 will offer aircraft manufacturers and civil aviation end users a bundled total system solution to provide for the economical accessing of analytical data that a FDR records via real-time data streaming, from anywhere and at any time around the world. Additionally, AMA will be the exclusive provider to L-3 of Iridium-based real time data communications and Internet data delivery solutions, including AMA’s revolutionary FLYHTstreamTM data streaming solution, and its fuel and emissions management solutions. The team will offer customers multiple commercial options to facilitate purchasing decisions. The agreement also provides for L-3 to offer AMA products and services to operators of maritime vessels in conjunction with L-3’s Marine Voyage Recorder products.

Together with an on-board L-3 FDR, AMA has demonstrated real-time FDR data and aircraft position streaming on in-service aircraft using its patented Automated Flight Information Reporting System (afirsTM). Using ground-based data analysis tools, operators can review captured data to plan maintenance and verify that each aircraft is conserving fuel and flying safely. In an emergency, ground personnel can review data for aircraft and subsystem functionality, and provide guidance and recommendations to the flight crew.
