Teledyne Controls and GE Aviation Sign Agreement to Enable More Effective Engine Maintenance Operation | Business Wire [cached]

Willie Cecil, director of Business Development, Wireless and Data Automation Solutions at Teledyne Controls says that predictive maintenance for aircraft is being taken to a completely different level for operators: "Until now, health monitoring has been limited because it has been performed using only a few hundred bytes of data sent from the aircraft via ACARS, which is fairly expensive and has limited bandwidth.

Iridium Next is also poised to provide ACARS with broadband networking as a global service over the poles, but it will not be fast; only 1.2 or 1.4 megabits per second compared to cabin broadband connectivity, which can support 40 megabits per second or more, according to Teledyne Controls' Business Development Director Willie Cecil. "The benefit of the Iridium system is it is much cheaper and lighter [compared with HF or classic aero]," he adds.

Some 85 percent of traffic traversing ACARS is not needed in real time, says Cecil, a reality that has led to frequently congested networks with the rise in the amount of data being transmitted from more advanced aircraft. "ACARS doesn't prioritize the non-time-critical feeds from time-critical, so air traffic data communications can get jammed up," Cecil adds.
The key innovation is going to be the ability to securely and seamlessly segregate these data paths to avoid network congestion, which already prompted the European Commission to delay by five years its mandate for operators to equip their aircraft with Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) until February 2020. "We need to segregate data by two things: one is by its importance, and the other is by its volume. As a general rule, important data typically is not high volume; it's low volume," Cecil says.
He predicts that aircraft will continue to send critical data in real time via ACARS, while high-volume data will be sent over low-cost links (air or ground) "as a background feed, and will be prioritized differently so it doesn't interfere with the high-priority data."
Cecil considers the industry "at that innovation point" where the cost of sending data is affordable enough to open up new innovation.

Outside of flight tracking and black box monitoring, Willie Cecil, director of business development at Teledyne Controls, sees "deeper health monitoring and alerting for aircraft systems and engines and even remote in-flight aircraft troubleshooting," taking center stage.

"Maintaining those cables is difficult and expensive," says Willie Cecil, director of business development at Teledyne Controls, who is looking to leverage AeroMACS once it becomes available.

Going forward, AeroMACS may very well be the best solution for aviation authorities, airlines and airports as they look to upgrade an airport surface communications system that is currently being stretched to its limit, but both Phillips and Cecil believe the application of AeroMACS can and should be stretched beyond the air traffic applications that are currently driving development.
"One of the logical next steps is that the AeroMACS network that is put in the ground can also be used for the aircraft with an avionics box that goes in the aircraft," says Cecil.
"For us, the opportunity we see with AeroMACS is to add the broadband capability it offers to our ground link product line and give these products an upgrade path from what they're using today, which is either Wi-Fi or cellular, or both," said Cecil, who noted that Teledyne is standing ready for when AeroMACS becomes available should airlines see the value in upgrading to access the network.
