Streamlined check-in for any size airport, deployable onsite or via the cloud
Cloud Operations: The Silver Lining for Airports
As the world emerges from the pandemic and passengers increasingly resume regular travel, airports are renewing their focus on critical innovation, especially when it comes to improving the passenger experience. In this e-book, we'll dive into four benefits of migrating airports to a cloud-based infrastructure.
Seamless travel experiences begin with seamless passenger check-in and boarding processes. And Collins Aerospace has the advanced technology needed to help airports – and airlines – of any size improve the passenger experience, while streamlining costs and enabling operational efficiencies.
ARINC cMUSE (Multi-User System Environment) is our next-generation common-use passenger processing system (CUPPS) solution that allows multiple airlines to share check-in desks and boarding gate positions at an airport rather than having their own dedicated infrastructure.
With the latest ARINC cMUSE solution, we've partnered with Amazon Web
Services (AWS), a global leader in cloud provision services, to offer full or
partial cloud-based deployment options, providing the additional flexibility,
scalability and efficiency aviation now needs.

how we can help!
Features & benefits
Airlines and other stakeholders can share infrastructure and costs
Deploy on site, in the cloud, or a hybrid of both to align with your
Interoperable with all current common-use terminal equipment (CUTE) and
Quickly deploy additional workstations in minutes for operational
Simplified software and application updates to stay up to date
Data mining and analytics provide critical insights into operational and
Dashboard reporting for greater operational decision-making and easier
Sandbox environment for application testing
Cloud-based operations help reduce environmental impact
Managed services and 24/7 support for peace of mind and smooth
A more sustainable solution
Cloud-based systems like cMUSE remove the need for energy-intensive on-site servers, core rooms, cooling systems, and increased local technical support. This reduces energy consumption and associated emissions to help minimize your environmental footprint – something we know airlines and airports are eager to do.
For airlines and airports of any size
cMUSE has been developed to make life easier. Whether deployed locally or in
the cloud, both options provide full application compatibility. Both support the
same end user applications. And both support the same traditional PC-based edge
devices, including peripheral firmware. Airports of all sizes will benefit from being able to launch check-in services in just minutes, onsite or off, using only a PC, laptop or thin-client device with existing peripherals and a standard Internet connection.
