FIDS- an effective Operational Flight Information Display System (FIDS) is one which gives each Flight department a custom feed of live metrics. They can see what’s in the air, what’s early, what’s delayed, what’s on the ground and/or what must be done for each aircraft in those stages – all in real time. FIDS can also be customised for internal access to show crew and other operational status.

Read about how a well designed FIDS could provide a holistic solution for your day to day operations.

SkyNet Aviation is pleased to announce it has now completed a solutions agreement with the South Eastern Section of the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS). SkyNet Aviation will provide a world-leading Day Of Operations platform that includes the latest generation of high-speed ADS-B tracking for the aeromedical service’s 20-aircraft fleet.

Currently, SkyNet Aviation has an agreement in place with RFDS – Qld Section. This new agreement now means that nationally, the Royal Flying Doctor Service has dedicated access to real-time aircraft tracking for the entire eastern third of Australia – from the Torres Strait right down to Tasmania.

With this solution, RFDS – South Eastern Section will deliver improved coordination, efficiency, and flight management – all towards getting more from each air-ambulance. Furthermore, this supports their mission: To provide excellence in aeromedical and primary health care across Australia.

Until now, RFDS – South Eastern Section has been using traditional Satellite tracking services used by most mid-size air fleets. However, the greater operational intelligence from SkyNet Aviation through the full REACH Day Of Operations platform will provide a significant boost to network intelligence, improving aircraft availability and service reliability.

As a leader in Operations Control Center (OCC) design and solutions there has never been a better time in Aviation to rebuild services with highly intelligent systems.

Many companies are shaking off the shackles from the Covid contraction and are now looking to rebuild technology and review their current digital systems and what they need or can get.

The Pandemic has shown us the need for flexibility and interoperable platforms and building by design, not by evolution. A network platform that offers scalable performance and resilience for a changing fleet network!

So what does that mean from an OCC perspective!
– Working on a layered approach of where your inbound network data comes from, is it reliable?
– Does your OCC Operations suite provide for the modular plug-in capability of familiar or new compliance B2B systems that the business can change over time?

Every OCC is different but having an adaptable Operating System makes a lot of pain go away when its time to upgrade.

If you would like to know more about Ecosystem architecture, talk with SkyNet Aviation who build OCC solutions.

What do you do when you’re responsible for a remote airstrip or airport that only sees a few flights a week, but could have something inbound and unannounced at any time?

It’s not as if you can have staff monitoring air traffic all day just in case. But, if an aircraft comes in and the runway is obstructed (think maintenance equipment, parked aircraft and even stray wildlife), a collision can occur.

Aviation solutions specialist, SkyNet Aviation, has developed the first, 100% autonomous warning solution that is particularly useful for remote airports.

SkyNet REACH® LASAW, standing for Landing Approach Surveillance And Warning, LASAW is a the only fully-automated system that watches the skies 24/7 for any ADS-B-equipped aircraft that are in a custom-defined landing configuration for your runway/s. And, if something incoming is detected, LASAW has the software smarts to trigger any combination of alert reactions you choose, from automatically switching on the landing lights, to ground alerts, to sending a pre-recorded two-way radio message to ground staff, to bird scarers and more.

SkyNet Aviation and King Island Council, located in Australia’s the Bass Strait, between Tasmania and Victoria, agree to place a LASAW / ADS-B receiver at King Island Airport (KNS) to support airport surveillance and safety within the region. Discussions between the council, which operates the airport, and SkyNet Aviation have been completed. King Island now joins a growing list of Airport Operators, gaining the benefits of a dedicated airspace surveillance and monitoring system. The Bass Strait is a vital Energy region with Oil and Gas production platforms in the area.

Confirmation was received following detailed briefings and technology demonstrations. SkyNet outlined how the LASAW solution will enable the council to improve safety and gain real-time comprehensive surveillance and traffic information, helping to service the airport facility more effectively and safely.

Using LASAW technology, airport operations staff will now have automated 24/7 monitoring of relevant aircraft behaviour for all aircraft within the relevant range. If a helicopter or plane has an inflight emergency or arriving off-schedule, LASAW will detect it and instantly make the Airport Operations team aware of a potential arrival.

As the name suggests, King Island Airport is on King Island – a windy and sparsely populated island roughly halfway across the Bass Strait. As the only airport for at least a 50 NM radius, it is a crucial hub to support the local community and the energy resource helicopter flights to the 20-plus energy platforms of the Bass Strait.

This new solution will become the second airport-based LASAW installation for Tasmania, following the example set by Devonport Airport in late 2020.

Because SkyNet Aviation’s commercial ADS-B can go where you need it, it fills the gaps left by public ADS-B. It gives you far greater reliability and reach as the receivers are continually monitored and professionally managed.
