OSS to Lead Hardware Design and Manufacture of FLYHT Aerospace Solutions’ New Aircraft Interface Device and Health Monitoring System — World’s First Wireless Quick Access Recorder with 5G Mobile Wireless for Real-time Remote Access
ESCONDIDO, Calif. & CALGARY, Canada – January 23, 2024 – One Stop Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OSS) and FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (OTCQX: FLYLF) (TSX-V: FLY) today announced the commencement of a multi-year design and manufacturing collaboration for FLYHT’s automated flight information reporting systems (AFIRS™) Edge family, including its new AFIRS Edge+. The expanded relationship ensures that FLYHT has access to OSS’s scaled capabilities as it launches the aviation industry’s first-to-market 5G-enabled avionics solutions.
The AFIRS Edge is an aircraft interface device (AID), connecting aircraft data with EFB applications and providing airlines with Wireless Quick Access (WQAR) capabilities, all while serving as a gateway on the aircraft for critical real-time information and onboard data storage.
The Edge also serves as a data port for FLYHT’s actionable intelligence services, such as fuel management, aircraft health monitoring, real-time engine data reporting and airport gate performance monitoring.
Further, when coupled with a real-time IP satellite connection, the Edge enables weather data customers to work with airlines to implement FLYHT’s Aircraft Based Observations (ABO) weather systems and solutions. ABO can include water vapor humidity data for enabling enhanced weather forecasting capabilities.
“We chose OSS as our manufacturing partner for our AFIRS Edge systems because of their proven capabilities in ruggedizing commercial aerospace devices and expertise in rugged edge solutions for AI, sensor processing and sensor fusion,” stated FLYHT President and Interim CEO, Kent Jacobs. “We also want to leverage OSS’s expertise in the design, development, integration, testing and manufacturing of new products like our AFIRS Edge+ which can enable faster time-to-market.”
For OSS, the design and manufacturing engagement with FLYHT is valued at a minimum of US$6 million over the initial five-year term. OSS expects to begin production and shipments of AFIRS Edge+ in the second quarter of 2024.
“This major win builds upon OSS being a long-time provider of embedded compute and storage technology for FLYHT’s flight safety equipment and networking prototypes,” noted OSS VP of Sales, Robert Kalebaugh. “Our selection by an industry leader like FLYHT represents a strong validation of our design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities, as well as the comprehensive customer service that we have delivered to FLYHT over the years.”
OSS CEO Mike Knowles commented: “This multi-year engagement expands our position in commercial aerospace, and further strengthens our technology development and manufacturing platform. Furthering our relationship with FLYHT as a long-standing valued partner underscores our commitment to aviation safety and delivering mission-critical performance without compromise for this important industry.”
