The future of aviation operations lies in the ability to leverage all available data sources in real-time to maximize efficiency and safety, enhancing the industry’s bottom line while improving the passenger experience.

Modern aircraft are simultaneously huge producers and consumers of data on everything from weather conditions, to flight parameters such as speed and position location, to aircraft health and performance. The Airbus A380 has roughly 6,000 onboard sensors and generates 4 gigabytes of data per flight, for example, while the Boeing 787 generates 500 gigabytes of data per flight. Meanwhile, powerful analytical tools are being developed to harness this information for better decision making in all aspects of the aviation business, including navigation, logistics and maintenance.
