- Aerospace & Defense
The Infosys Aerospace and Defense practice partners with aircraft manufacturers to maximize airworthiness while complying with regulations. We focus on sustainability across the aircraft lifecycle as well as guidelines of regulatory agencies such as Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). We combine automated monitoring systems, predictive modeling, and artificial intelligence-powered tools for compliance monitoring, quality control, and risk management.
Our digital ecosystem ensures airworthiness of aircraft, and accelerates modifications in response to changes in regulations. Significantly, it facilitates safety upgrades in the event of aircraft grounding or a ban on an aircraft model by civil aviation authorities. Further, our learning modules and training manuals inculcate safety practices among pilots, technical staff, product designers, and maintenance crew.
We align Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) with regulatory frameworks to rationalize the cost of risk management. Our expertise spans aviation occupational health and safety regulations, environmental certifications, communication protocols, and Electromagnetic Interference / Compatibility (EMI/EMC) standards for testing aeronautical products.
Our digital framework aggregates safety metrics and performance parameters including fuel consumption, aerodynamic efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions, and flying patterns. It helps manufacturers prioritize sustainability programs and monitor progress. Further, we track access to documents, serviceability (calibration data) of tools, and work allocation to safeguard data and ensure compliance with guidelines for work orders.
Our experts discuss the system architecture of a robust vehicle health monitoring mechanism, and provide a use case to showcase how it addresses functional requirements.
A robust data management system enables accumulation of real-time and historical data from in-flight recorders, sensors and cockpit voice recorders for review and analysis based on aircraft type, model, territory, etc.
Analytical tools evaluate diverse performance indicators and enable causal analyses to address issues promptly.
Digital inspection, audit and risk management systems define workflows for closure of non-compliance reports, and offer insights into the root cause of malfunction.
