Boeing and Teledyne Controls today announced that the companies will combine their ground-based operational data products to create the new Fleetwide Data Manager program. The goal is to provide a unified solution for airlines to transfer data to and from airplanes more efficiently, across fleet-wide operations.

The new Fleetwide Data Manager from Boeing and Teledyne will set an industry standard for the transfer of navigation databases, software updates and quick access recorder (QAR) data between an airline’s maintenance facilities and its airplane fleet. The solution is being developed after Boeing and Teledyne recognized the need for an integrated product to work across Boeing and non-Boeing airplanes in an airline’s fleet.

“We continually listen to the needs of our customers, and they told us that they are pleased with the functionality of the current Boeing data transfer solution, but many customers use the Teledyne data transfer solution for their legacy, and non-Boeing airplanes,” said Kevin Crowley, vice president, Boeing Digital Aviation. “In teaming with Teledyne, we will resolve this issue by providing best-in-class features from both companies that seamlessly connects mixed-fleet operations.”

Fleetwide Data Manager combines capabilities from Boeing’s Loadable Software Airplane Parts Librarian (LSAPL) with Teledyne’s Loadstar® Server Enterprise (LSE) to improve how airlines transmit essential digital data and reduce airplane down time while distributing information on the ground.   

“Transitioning to Fleetwide Data Manager will eliminate our customers’ need to purchase both LSAP Librarian and LSE for full fleet coverage, which reduces software purchase, maintenance and training costs,” said Masood Hassan, president, Teledyne Controls. “This combined approach to the data transfer process will simplify what was a complex issue for airlines and offers a familiar user experience with new features and benefits.”

The new Fleetwide Data Manager is expected to be available from Boeing and Teledyne for the airline market in late 2017.
