2 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 2 of 11 BETTER INTEGRATION Nothing revolutionary here, but better integrated, taking advantage of the web and other resources Nothing revolutionary here, but better integrated, taking advantage of the web and other resources

3 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 3 of 11 WHAT WE DO TODAY Phone calls, faxes, s… and tons of paper… Phone calls, faxes, s… and tons of paper…

4 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 4 of 11PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to devise a procedure which uses company intranet and web resources to optimize the flight inspection mission, going full circle up to data storage/retrieval before, during and after the mission The purpose of this study is to devise a procedure which uses company intranet and web resources to optimize the flight inspection mission, going full circle up to data storage/retrieval before, during and after the mission

5 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 5 of 11 WHO IS INVOLVED? FISP / CUSTOMER FISP / CUSTOMER GROUND ENGINEERS GROUND ENGINEERS ATC ATC CAA CAA MILITARY MILITARY AIRPORT AUTHORITY AIRPORT AUTHORITY HANDLING HANDLING AIRLINES AIRLINES OTHERS OTHERS

6 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 6 of 11 HOW IT (SHOULD) WORKS? Through distribution of information and data sharing, and availability of such data granted according to a transparency level which is required for every actor to complete the task assigned Through distribution of information and data sharing, and availability of such data granted according to a transparency level which is required for every actor to complete the task assigned An integrated, available on-line database managed by the FISP is required An integrated, available on-line database managed by the FISP is required

7 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 7 of 11 EXAMPLE (Flow chart)

8 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 8 of 11 EXAMPLE (ATC point of view) Each box contains information related to the mission level enjoyed by the actor Boxes are open or closed according to the access level enjoyed by the actor The concept is that you have access to what you need to know The concept is that you have access to what you need to know The matrix shown here is just a conceptual example The matrix shown here is just a conceptual example

9 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 9 of 11 BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF… … you are in a hurry? (post-accident check, failure of equipment at major airport, etc): a mission ticket should be sent anyway because this enable the necessary transparency for the involved actors, but there is no time for the iterative loop due to the urgency. The reason for this rush should be evident from the formulation of the mission ticket and in these specific cases cooperation is expected from the ATC, CAA and Airport Authorities. … you are in a hurry?

10 IFIS 2008, OKC f. maracich 10 of 11CONCLUSIONS The main advantage is that everything is managed from a central unit (FISP) which grant access according to what the participants need to know. All the data (including commissioning and routine checks) are available for any given NAVAID to the interested actors. ATC can easily access a database of flight profiles used during the mission by the flight inspection aircraft (with a little effort these profiles could be superimposed to radar screens – eventually actual profiles soon to be flown can be data-linked to the ground), CAA can monitor at any time the status of the NAVAIDs and Ground Engineers can retrieve all the data concerning the NAVAIDs under their responsibility in a matter of seconds. After the mission the flight inspection files can be uploaded as well as the final status report. The procedure is fully traceable and fulfils the requirement to be and approved quality procedure.

The customer (NAVAID owner) is always aware of the situation. The customer (NAVAID owner) is always aware of the situation. This should provide a more efficient service and better data handling, save few trees (less paper docs) and few tons of fuel a year with a better usage of the flight inspection fleet.
