[Avionics Today 09-27-2016] Rockwell Collins and Stellar Labs have signed an agreement to develop a new flight operations platform for business aviation that aims to enable aircraft operators and flight departments to have access to an end-to-end aircraft management solution through mobile devices, tablets and web browsers.
Under the agreement, the companies will co-develop a next-generation flight operations management platform, based on Rockwell Collins’ ARINCDirect Flight Operations System (FOS), to create a system in the cloud. For operators wanting to add revenue management, optimization, collaboration and marketplace charter, the system will integrate with Stellar Labs’ commercial solutions.
“It addresses the growing demand for flight departments, aircraft management operators, FBOs, maintenance and crews to work together — even across company lines. Our new approach with Stellar Labs makes this possible by creating a cloud-based global solution,” said Dave Poltorak, vice president of business and government aviation for Rockwell Collins.
