SITAONAIR and Astronics Ballard Technology have teamed up to provide an integrated aircraft “smart core.”

The product solution combines Astronics’ webCS Wireless Aircraft Communications Server along with SITAONAIR’s e-enabled application software.

The ‘smart core’ brings together the vast connected aircraft data collected by SITAONAIR’s e-Aircraft DataCapture solutions for cockpit, cabin, and aircraft operations. It then distributes this SITAONAIR-processed data onboard using Astronics Ballard Technology’s flexible webCS, a smart AID/server/router that securely bridges avionics data with wired and wireless networks in a single, compact box.
