El Segundo, California - May 26, 2021 - Pratt & Whitney (P&W), a global leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, and Teledyne Controls, a leader in aircraft data management, have joined forces to deliver enhanced engine health management services to their customers. Teledyne’s Data Delivery Solution (DDS) supports the digital transformation of Pratt & Whitney Enginewise® customers, enabling more in-depth, near real-time analytics, and greater insights into their engine’s health and performance.
“We are very excited about this new partnership,” said Mehrdad Radmehr, President of Teledyne Controls. “The full series flight data that is recorded by onboard Quick Access Recorders (QAR), such as Teledyne’s GroundLink® Comm+, provides a wealth of information to support aircraft systems’ health monitoring, trending, and predictive analytics,” he explained. “Using Teledyne’s Data Delivery Solution, P&W engine operators can securely and automatically feed redacted subsets of this data into the Enginewise analytics platform, while still retaining full control over the sharing of their data in a safe and secure manner.”
“We are excited to be working with Teledyne Controls. This collaboration will expand Pratt & Whitney’s capabilities for collecting full-flight data to a larger population of aircraft. By using a service that many airlines already subscribe to, we will leverage an existing ecosystem to bring additional benefit to our customers,” said Joe Sylvestro, vice president of Global Aftermarket Operations at Pratt & Whitney. “These advanced engine parameter data points will paint a cohesive digital picture of aircrafts’ health, further enabling Pratt & Whitney to draw insights and provide predictive maintenance.”
Teledyne’s Data Distribution Solution enables aircraft operators to share selected flight data with specific groups of data consumers, such as stakeholders within an airline beyond the safety team (e.g., flight operations, maintenance, engineering) and third-party users like engine manufacturers, APU vendors and other OEM third parties. Teledyne’s Data Distribution Solution is a fully managed cloud service that requires minimal effort from the airline to benefit from OEM efficiencies and optimization.
Teledyne’s GroundLink® Comm+ is a versatile wireless communication system that facilitates and accelerates data exchange between airborne systems and ground-based equipment. In addition to its automated flight data download core function, the system supports multiple applications across an airline's operations, such as wireless distribution of software parts and databases, real‑time data streaming, cabin/crew connectivity, ACARS over IP and more.
