The GEnx engine is up to 15 percent more efficient than the CF6-80C2, and the GE9X engine has been designed to be up to 10% more efficient than the GE90-115B.</span></span></span></span></span></span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align:start; margin-bottom:11px"><span style="font-size:11pt"><span style="line-height:15.693333625793457px"><span style="font-family:Calibri, sans-serif"><span style="color:#000000"><span style="font-style:normal"><span style="font-weight:400"><span style="white-space:normal"><span style="text-decoration:none">But the push for 20 percent greater fuel efficiency in one generation?

The data leading up to the impact provides investigators with the necessary insights to evaluate the causes in the subsequent investigation. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">For passenger and military aircraft CVRs and FDRs, the SRVIVR25 family is L3Harris’ newest introduction. SRVIVR25 provides the most data available, delivering over 50 hours of audio and datalink recording and over 140 hours of flight data. This solution exceeds the current and forthcoming global mandates and is line-fit on Airbus platforms and selectable on Boeing platforms. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Given the capabilities of the SRVIVR25 series, some airlines are choosing to upgrade their current fleet because it is an economical direct replacement for ARINC 747 and 757-based recorders with minimal downtime. Additionally, the series offers an integrated CVR Recorder Independent Power (RIPS), meeting mandates while reducing space and weight.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Frequent data retrieval is essential for operators to perform the analysis required to support their safety management systems. L3Harris offers a recorder data interface (RDI) with an intuitive user interface tablet-based designed to download large amounts of data quickly while maintaining data security and privacy for the voice and data files. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Expert analysis harnesses the data intelligently to drive measurable results. L3Harris offers verification and intelligibility reporting with Express Readout; and flight data management (FDM) and flight operations quality assurance (FOQA) with Flight Data Connect for all industry recorders. The capability exists to download the files using an RDI, a QAR, or other compatible device and directly upload them to the analytics platform.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Express Readout verifies functionality and generates the global civil aviation authority’s documentation, including assistance with the EASA’s datalink verification. Reports are produced in a few days without removing the recorder from the aircraft, saving the maintenance departments significant time and costs. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">L3Harris’ Flight Data Connect (FDC) provides FDM and FOQA analysis by providing automatic and reviewed levels of data processing. FDC automatically processes the data and populates the customised dashboard after uploading the raw data into the L3Harris secure, cloud-based server. Data, including accurate recreation of flights in graphical and 3D format, is often available to view and analyse in just a few minutes. A report of any triggered event, such as low speed after take-off, low-power approaches, late gear retraction, or any of the thousand’s standard or customised FDM events, can be automatically emailed to the appropriate safety or operations manager. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">An L3Harris data scientist review process includes safety, maintenance, and fuel-related trends or events with specific, actionable insights aligned to the customer’s standard operating procedures. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Insights from these tools can be invaluable. For example, a recent flight crew received indications of the left thrust reverser unlocked in flight. When they uploaded the data to FDC, the flight operations analyst was able to see the parameters showing an electrical indication problem rather than a mechanical problem, which saved maintenance time and unnecessary expense.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The L3Harris FDC enables more effective decision-making and specific maintenance needs. Customers can also work with their assigned L3Harris analyst to identify trends and propose corrective actions to solve particular safety events. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The L3Harris 360 approach to recorders and data analytics delivers timely and valuable insights for operators to save time, reduce maintenance costs, and increase safety and pilot training immediately.</span></span></p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2022-05-19T12:00:00Z">Thu, 19/05/2022 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">L3Harris said it takes a holistic approach to capture the most data possible. </span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> <div><a href="/africa" hreflang="en">Africa</a></div> <div><a href="/south-asia" hreflang="en">South Asia</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/technology" hreflang="en">Technology</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-6" id="vote--6" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-6" action="/taxonomy/term/6/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--12--description" id="edit-vote--12" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--12--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit--6" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-dd9olj-6otpoumhxmn3tifq7hcfjn36ihikggyx-n1k" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-Dd9OLj_6OtpOUmhXmn3TifQ7hcFJn36IHIkGGyx-N1k" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-6" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_6" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Top story</div> <div>On</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/technology" hreflang="en">Technology</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2022-05/SRVIVR25%20and%20RDI%20-1280x720%20%281%29.png" width="1280" height="720" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Thu, 19 May 2022 09:45:47 +0000 eNethersole 65016 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero Airport Show: Frequentis to operate Central America and Caribbean http://www.timesaerospace.aero/news/events/airport-show-frequentis-to-operate-central-america-and-caribbean <div property="schema:text"><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">Frequentis was first commissioned to renew the regions VSAT (very small aperture terminal) network infrastructure in 2014, to enhance reliability of the aeronautical telecommunications service, as well as allow cost savings and bandwidth optimisation.

Those recordings show that 400 Hz ground power units rarely draw full current. And if they do, it’s only for very short periods of time. Due to its variable frequency drive technology that allow step-less regulation of the discharge temperature, the intelligent ITW GSE PCA, the brain of the IPM system, can easily cope with those periods.”</p> <p>At all times, the PCA ensures that the total power consumption does not exceed the power capacity limit.</p> <p>“When connected GPUs draw more power i.e. during aircraft engine start, the PCA smoothly reduce the its own consumption. And because the GPUs only require more power for a very short time i.e. from a few seconds to a few minutes, passengers presumably not even register any rise of the cabin temperature,” said Feuga.</p> <p>“The IPM system is a big advantage for airports that have reached their power capacity limits. Besides room for connection of more equipment to existing stands without investments in expensive infrastructure, the simpler installation reduces maintenance costs. ITW is ready with advice and calculations, if you wonder how you can benefit from implementing the IPM system.”</p> <p>Click <a href="https://itwgse.com/intelligent-power-management/">here</a> for more information.</p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2022-05-17T12:00:00Z">Tue, 17/05/2022 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>Short summary</div> <div><p>ITW GSE’s IPM allows airports to connect more equipment to an existing gate while removing complexity and eases maintenance.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p style="text-align:justify">As airports are already at their power capacity limit, ITW GSE’s Intelligent Power Management (IPM) allows airports to connect more equipment to an existing gate while removing complexity and eases maintenance.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/technology" hreflang="en">Technology</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-9" id="vote--9" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-9" action="/taxonomy/term/6/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--18--description" id="edit-vote--18" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--18--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit--9" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-lrcbw6pxgkh3-rlyysrieejmlu7skph5j62seykkib4" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-LRCbW6PXgKH3-rLyYsriEEjMLu7SkpH5j62SeYKkIb4" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-9" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_9" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Top story</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/airports" hreflang="en">Airports</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2022-04/IPM%20Illustration.jpeg%20.jpeg" width="1074" height="742" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Tue, 26 Apr 2022 12:21:11 +0000 eNethersole 64882 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero
