SD Highlights Platform Versatility By Centralizing Flight Operations Through Third-Party Integration

Las Vegas, Nevada/ 22 October 2019 – Business aviation solutions provider Satcom Direct (SD) is highlighting the benefits of its open architecture technology as it introduces an impressive set of new strategic alliances with third-party systems at NBAA-BACE 2019 – Booth C10217. The seamless integration of digital pre-flight trip-planning, into the intelligent data management platform, SD Pro® conveniently centralizes flight operations.

Flight departments subscribed to SD Scheduler will have the ability to integrate services from ForeFlight, Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. and World Fuel Services, into the SD Pro flight management system. Access to the services through one single platform delivers valuable functionality for flight departments, maintenance teams and flight deck crew. In addition it ensures all members of the flight team have simultaneous visibility of the flight across all digital platforms.

Integration with SD’s FlightDeck Freedom® (FDF) datalink service also enables trip status updates related to aircraft movements, ETA changes, diversions, hazardous weather, and security events. The synchronized operations through all phases of flight delivers increased efficiencies, improved budgeting and reduced operational costs.

The system integrations are complemented by the recently launched SD PostFlight module which is integrated with SD Pro. The data management system directly delivers engine times and cycles information to third party maintenance management tracking systems, including CAMP and Flightdocs, to support seamless two-way data transfer. In addition customers can opt to have data pushed to OEMS to support warranty programs, with Rolls-Royce already signed up to receive performance data.

With the new systems integration of best-in-class services and the launch of SD PostFlight, common customers now have access to a centralized operational ecosystem through the SD Pro digital dashboard. “We have purposefully built our technology so that we can deliver functionality that our customers want and need. With SD Xperience we introduced the ability to select the systems that exactly match their needs, and now with the latest integrations from the third-party systems we have centralized flight management giving customers easy access to cricital information in one single dashboard,” said Chris Moore, SD President Business Aviation. “We have always maintained an agnostic approach to give customers connectivity solutions that meet and exceed expectations. The addition of integrated services through our open architecture structure has created an ecosystem that gives our customers even more control and visibility of their flight operations.”
