The challenge

Environmental factors in the atmosphere, like dust, ice, sulphur, and volcanic, accelerate wear of aircraft components; unscheduled maintenance costs the industry billions of dollars each year.

Aircraft operators, manufacturers and maintenance repair organisations now increasingly share maintenance liability through ‘power-by-the-hour’ services for the lifetime of the aircraft.

The solution

Satavia’s digital intelligence platform generates environmental factor exposure analytics for individual aircraft and airports, and integrates machine learning to offer automated risk-based decision-making capability. Satavia’s data-as-a-service enables aircraft operators to modify aircraft flight plans and scheduling to extend engine lifetime, which saves $millions per engine in lifetime maintenance, and reduces cost of aircraft ownership. Aircraft engine manufacturers can proactively adjust maintenance plans to minimise unscheduled maintenance.
The mission is to make aircraft maintenance planning more predictable. Satavia’s digital environmental intelligence reduces maintenance liability for aircraft operators and OEM by minimising unscheduled aircraft maintenance caused by the environment.
