SATCOM DIRECT ANNOUNCES ITS LATEST INNOVATION, SD PRO

SD Pro brings together patented Satcom Direct (SD) products and services with best-in-class integration partners to deliver real-time data about the aircraft via a single interface. SD Pro lets you view and manage flight logs, performance data, scheduling, trip planning, maintenance information, operating history, and more. Demos of the new technology are available at Satcom Direct’s EBACE exhibit S115.

SD Pro aggregates information from multiple sources the flight department is already using, into a web-based display, so that every member of the team can access it from their desktop, tablet or mobile device. Designed to be a single point of access, the SD Pro interface displays the information via modules on its customizable dashboard that can be tailored to meet the varying needs of flight departments and individual team members. Operators can choose which modules to add to the SD Pro dashboard based on their operational requirements. 

“We conceived the idea for SD Pro when we saw how members of aircraft management companies and flight departments had to access numerous information sources, multiple screens, and disparate access points to do their jobs. SD Pro changes that by bringing together many of these functions into a modular dashboard. We’ve already partnered with a number of providers to integrate the systems flight departments use most – and more partnerships are in the works,” said David Greenhill, President of SD.

SD Pro not only brings together information from multiple third-party providers, it offers powerful data capture capabilities from its value added services, FlightDeck Freedom® (FDF) premium datalink service, and the Satcom Direct Router (SDRTM). This allows the extraction of operational data from the aircraft such as telemetry and position data, fuel indications, operational parameters and more. Revolutionary SD Pro technology processes the data and securely stores it in the state-of-the-art SD Data Center. SD Pro is designed to grow, with additional modules in development to deliver the functionality flight departments require.

“SD Pro synchronizes the flight department with the aircraft, in real-time. The SD Pro platform is even more powerful when combined with the SDR and FDF. Their advanced data capture capabilities create a reliable historical record for the life of the aircraft, and save money by accurately capturing cycles and times down to the second,” said Jim Jensen, Founder and CEO of SD. “The future of flight operations management is here.”
