Inflight connectivity specialist SmartSky Networks is teaming up with Mosaic ATM to expand the Skytelligence open marketplace and framework to developers of aviation applications and services.
“To catalyze aviation’s digital transformation, our Skytelligence open marketplace enables companies to access and share aviation, flight, weather data, operations data and more,” said Haynes Griffin, chairman and CEO at SmartSky. “Mosaic is a critical partner in the creation of this application development infrastructure.”
“SmartSky’s patented system for five-dimensional trajectory optimisation with continuous re-planning is an industry breakthrough, and accessing this capability via a software as a service model is a game-changer,” said Chris Brinton, CEO of Mosaic ATM. “This feature allows developers to take advantage of the combination of several data sources and services, including weather and traffic constraints, to quickly and cost-effectively build enhanced services.”
Mosaic has provided SmartSky with the expertise to expand upon the Skytelligence concept, including insights for data processing, transformation and fusion techniques to increase Skytelligence’s data offering. SmartSky and Mosaic will continue to collaborate to develop applications and services related to airport data, convective weather data, navigation aids and more.
