Turbomeca (Safran) announced the achievement of a major milestone in the BOOST (bank of online services and technologies) project: the delivery of the first version of the IBM application.
BOOST is Turbomeca’s future range of advanced engine and maintenance management services. With this highly secure web-based application, customers will be able to electronically share data with Turbomeca, smooth and facilitate operations and airworthiness tasks as well as limit human factors through its specific online features.
The next major step in the BOOST project is the test phase. Turbomeca already signed collaboration agreements with six operators in 2013 and is expecting new other customers including Ecocopter (Chili) and Helisul Taxi Aereo (Brazil), to the group of testers. The first round of tests have already started within Turbomeca and the application will be later tested by the first customers this summer.
Turbomeca has also signed a memorandum of understanding with three IT software companies that specialize in aircraft maintenance and management solutions: Ramco (India), AMS (Canada) and LTB400 (Germany).
