U.S. technology company L3Harris is demonstrating its SRVIVR25 voice and flight data recorders, along with a Recorder Data Interface (RDI) demo, at the Dubai Airshow. The products facilitate data extraction and enhance time savings for operators' safety programs.
L3Harris seeks to leverage connected aircraft data with a focus on analytics to transform airline operations by enhancing safety and reducing costs. The SRVIVR25’s Express Readout and Flight Data Connect web portal deliver the highest levels of voice and data ever captured for analysis, according to the company.
“This SRVIVR25 series exceeds requirements mandated for voice recorders in 2022 and is available for line-fit and retrofit selection,” L3Harris said. “It provides more than 140 hours of flight data information available for download using the new RDI tablet and/or software package. The RDI enables technicians to connect to the recorders and extract a large amount of data in a short amount of time without removing the device from the aircraft, saving critical time and cost.”
Flight crew and maintenance personnel can upload data into L3Harris's patented, secure web-based analytics portal, with Express Readout services providing readout and intelligibility reports, verifying functionality, and generating the necessary documentation for global civil aviation authorities in less than three days. The service also provides a semi-automatic process for datalink reporting recently mandated by EASA.
“The Flight Data Connect service provides rapid data processing, accurate recreation of flights in graphical and 3D formats, and allows review of urgent safety and maintenance issues within minutes,” L3Harris said. “This quick analysis enables operators to take immediate, mission-critical decisions. The flight data gives ground-based technicians the ability to identify details in equipment operations, potentially saving operators thousands of dollars in repairs as well as minimizing aircraft ground risks.”
