On Board System

Directly From the Aircraft

Our proprietary program function uploads to the Aircraft Management System. It uses data from the aircraft itself to assess the needed information which transmits to our data cloud.

The program function is developed in an application generation software and uploaded to the non-mandatory part of the aircraft management system (ACMS) forming part of the Digital Flight Data Acquisition Unit (DFDAU). 


Our program function is a read-only, and the application does not interfere with any flight-critical system (found in the mandatory section).  

All program computations are being performed on board, only assessment results are transmitted, which has no bearing upon the action of pilots.  


Transmission of results are sent to a ground station via ACARS (VHF), but can be set-up for other aircraft to ground transmission/ communication systems.

About Us

Formed from the idea of using the aircraft itself to improve and better report slippery runway conditon, a long time problem for aviation. Kongsberg Aeronautical has collaborated with a major US airline to develop the needed functionality of an on board program function to achieve such.

Our Solution

An end-to-end information  solution that provides runway conditions  information that is accurate, frequent, and timely.

As a decision support system enabling airlines to ensure safety and enhance their operations through improved contingency planning.
