Contours for European IT-cloud service for smart aircraft maintenance defined

Since the kick off meeting in June 2018, five architectural scenarios have been examined that could be used for the ReMAP-IT-platform. With this platform, European airlines will be able to monitor the health of their aircraft and plan their maintenance with state-of-the-art techniques corresponding to the available data that modern airplanes generate. The choice for one scenario has been made now.

Kick off to smarter airplane maintenance

Today, 13 partners from 7 European countries gathered in Delft to mark the beginning of a new approach towards the maintenance of airplanes. This multi-industry team covering the entire value chain for aircraft health management will collaborate the coming four years in ReMAP. Main goal is to use the terabytes of data a modern airplane generates in a far more efficient way. Technical Project Coordinator Bruno Santos: “Nowadays parts are still replaced at pre-scheduled intervals, even when they haven’t reached their lifetime yet. With the available data we want to provide a reliable estimation of the remaining lifetime of all airplane parts and fully exploit them.” ReMAP will have an estimated benefit to the European aviation of more than 700 million Euro per year. The European Commission finances this project with 6.8 million Euros from Horizon2020 programme – the major EU Research and Innovation financial instrument.
