Satcom Direct, the business aviation connectivity, software and hardware provider, is showcasing enhancements to its digital flight operations platform SD Pro®, during EBACE 2018 on booth W115. Two new modules further supporting on-board connectivity management and giving even greater control of cyber security threat management are being demonstrated. 

SD’s new Advanced Connectivity module enables users to generate a predictive connectivity map for the flight. The illustrative graphic highlights network coverage, and any associated issues along the route enabling users to adjust travel-plans accordingly.  The feature aims to prevent loss of connectivity as it highlights dead zones and regional areas where data may be at threat from intrusion. This adds to the existing connectivity module features which already indicate the real-time connection status, as well as detailed device usage information. 

With cyber-threats to aircraft at all altitudes on the increase, SD has also enhanced the SD Pro Threat Monitoring module. In addition to the existing services, the latest upgrade gives flight departments more visibility into the types of threats identified as well as the ability to view and sort threats by category. Analyzing the type of threat in real time allows customers to apply sorting and filtering features to distinguish between the variety of threats e.g malware, active intrusion, phishing, etc. With this data, flight departments can make better informed connectivity decisions about user behaviors and security policies, and stay ahead of any potential vulnerabilities.

When combined with SD hardware,  SD Pro also gives users more insight and control over their onboard connectivity and how it is functioning. “As connectivity becomes increasingly important for flight departments, crew, and passengers we continue to find ways to add more value to their connectivity options and provide tailored solutions to their individual needs,” says Michael Skou Christensen, SD VP International. “We are an innovative company, and aviators ourselves, so understand the importance of continually developing our products to adapt to the changing market. Our constant improvement of our SD Pro technology exemplifies our commitment to improving the customer connectivity experience.” 

The SD Pro solution aggregates connectivity data to share with customers to add even more value to the service. “With this data the operator or owners can modify operations, improve standards and operate at maximum efficiency, it really does save money and improve performance,” concludes Christensen. 

SD will be demonstrating the latest modules along with its range of hardware and other modules. In addition Cyber Security demos outling the impact of not threat monitoring will also take place twice a day at 11.00 and 16.00 and Thursday morning at 11.00. Individual demos are available on request throughout the show - SD Booth W115.
