We’re providing customers with end-to-end digital solutions, both on and off the aircraft, that can enable more predictable, efficient flight operations – for passengers, airport employees and vendors, as well as airline operators, crews and those managing the commercial airspace.

By using mapping technologies and advanced data, analytics and artificial intelligence to optimize flight paths and operations, we’re helping customers find shorter routes – which, in turn, contributes to the decarbonization of the skies.

The reach of our capabilities across aviation allows us to take a holistic approach that spans the entire ecosystem. Whether we’re leveraging proven technologies within our own business or within our parent company, we can collaborate across digital platforms to synthesize information in ways no one else can.

Collaborative platforms

It takes the entire industry to get on a better path forward. Onboard enablement systems, like FOMAX and InteliSight™, are providing airlines better access to more information than ever before. By connecting this data with digital solutions for tech logbooks, charts, weather and more, whether developed in house or by third-parties, airlines can optimize operational efficiency, which leads to more efficient operations, improved fuel consumption and reduced carbon emissions.

Flight path optimization

When pilots re-route to compensate for weather changes, it often adds significant time and distance to the flight plan. And climate change is only making adverse weather conditions harder to predict. Now, Collins is leveraging environmental data, such as prevailing winds and convective weather, as well as air traffic and other airspace information, from a variety of connected sources to optimize an aircraft’s flight path. This will provide more up-to-the-minute route suggestions so pilots can coordinate with dispatchers and air traffic control to minimize flight plan deviation, excess fuel burn and missed connections.
