GE announced today a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between its Aviation and Automation and Control business units to develop an integrated control hub to unlock the potential of the Industrial Internet in tough environments.

A derivative of the technology used in the Boeing 787 and Lockheed Martin F-35, aerospace controllers offer very high reliability despite operating in the most challenging conditions.

"This project takes our aerospace technology and maximizes its value by using it across other GE business units," said Alan Caslavka, president of Avionics for GE Aviation. "Our technology will enable other parts of GE to minimize maintenance, reduce wiring and ultimately deliver greater volumes of data to feed into Predix and develop the Digital Twin. As part of the GE Store, this clearly demonstrates the synergy within GE in offering value across the business units."

GE Aviation will now use this capability to deliver value to customers in other business units, such as Oil & Gas or Transportation, that have a need for Edge control in close proximity to the sensors and hardware.

Rebecca Boll, executive product manager for GE Power's Automation and Control business notes: "Our customers are looking for solutions to enable digital optimization, and aerospace can help to unlock this even in the toughest, remote environments such as rail or wind turbines."

GE Aviation is an operating unit of GE (NYSE: GE) and a world-leading provider of jet engines, components, avionics, digital and integrated systems and navigation services for commercial and military aircraft. GE Aviation has a global service network to support these offerings. For more information, visit us at www.geaviation.com
