SkyTrac Expands Flight Data Monitoring Section to SkyWeb

Kelowna, B.C.-based SkyTrac Systems (Booth 923) introduced a new flight data monitoring (FDM) section to SkyWeb to streamline flight monitoring with the use of new graphical charts, reports and replays, not only to simplify data monitoring but also to provide more flight parameters.

SkyWeb’s new FDM allows users to upload flight data downloaded directly from SkyTrac’s ISAT-200A units, which log data internally at a much higher rate than normally transmitted over the air. This allows high-fidelity flight data to be graphed and analyzed, including standard GPS position data, pitch/roll/yaw and data from connected devices (via Arinc 429/717, analog and discrete inputs). SkyWeb users will also be able to view 3-D flight playbacks in Google Earth.

“The emerging FDM market is growing quite rapidly. Our aim is to ensure that our customers are able to keep up while simplifying the process as best we can,” commented SkyTrac president Malachi Nordine. “This new FDM section provides great visuals and charts for quick and easy data interpretation as well as additional tools for enhanced monitoring capabilities.”

DAC International, an avionics sales and distribution company owned by Greenwich AeroGroup (Booth No. 821), has joined SkyTrac as a regional distributor to expand SkyTrac’s reach throughout Latin America, Oceania and Asia. DAC will distribute SkyTrac’s ISAT-200A transceiver, along with specialized fleet management support services, flight tracking and flight operational quality assurance (FOQA) and FDM services.

“Partnering with DAC and channeling its team’s extensive knowledge of global aviation will allow us to extend our global reach rapidly,” said SkyTrac CEO Stephen Sorocky. “We’re excited to join with DAC’s experienced team in some of the world’s most dynamic aviation markets.”

Added Francisco Hernandez, general manager of DAC International, “We believe the DAC-SkyTrac team is the perfect combination of regional experience and cutting-edge technology.”
