SmartSky Networks has partnered with Mosaic ATM to enhance Skytelligence’s open marketplace and framework infrastructure to connect aviation applications and services developers, the air-to-ground (ATG) data network developer and provider announced yesterday. An improved Skytelligence enables the development of new data and services products to improve the efficiency of business and commercial aviation operations, SmartSky said.
“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 SmartSky chairman and CEO Haynes Griffin. “Mosaic is a critical partner in the creation of this application development infrastructure.”
Mosaic has already provided to SmartSky the expertise to expand upon and refine the Skytelligence concept—including insights for data processing, transformation, and fusion techniques to increase Skytelligence’s data offering. Under this partnership, the two companies will continue collaborating in the development of applications and services related to airport data, convective weather data, and navigation aids.
“SmartSky’s patented system for five-dimensional trajectory optimization with continuous re-planning is an industry breakthrough and accessing this capability via a software-as-a-service model is a game-changer,” said Mosaic CEO Chris Brinton. “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.”
