Calgary, Alberta – May 30, 2018 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”) is pleased to announce the receipt of the Canadian Patent for their real-time data streaming technology, FLYHTStreamTM.
The Canadian Patent for the Company’s commercially available emergency data streaming technology was granted by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office and will add to FLYHT’s existing patents for this technology in China and the United States.
“FLYHT is the industry leader in real-time data streaming and recently demonstrated the functionality for cockpit audio and flight data streaming as part of the Boeing EcoDemonstrator Program,” remarked FLYHT’s CTO Derek Graham. “This patent protects our intellectual property which we believe will ultimately be adopted throughout all of commercial air transport.”
FLYHTStream is used during an emergency or abnormal situation onboard an aircraft. It sends flight data recorder information to the airline immediately, through a real-time communications network, so airlines and investigators know the status and exact location of the aircraft. Data streaming is initiated either automatically during an unsafe condition, by the pilots through an event button in the cockpit or by the operations team on the ground through the UpTimeTM server. Key airline personnel are notified immediately, and essential data is streamed from the aircraft.
This technology meets industry requirements. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has passed a performance-based requirement for new aircraft type designs to make the flight recorder data available in a timely manner by 2021. The intent of ICAO’s Timely Access to Flight Recorder Information is to resolve problems recently encountered when aircraft and their black boxes cannot immediately be accessed. See more on the requirement in the June 5, 2017 edition of the FLYHT CEO Letter.
This patent number 2,796,119 is titled Automated Aircraft Flight Data Delivery and Management System with Demand Mode and was issued on May 1, 2018.
