First achievements in European aviation fleet management discussed

The European consortium that works towards a roadmap for smarter fleet health management in aviation (ReMAP) discussed the results of its first half year research on 27th and 28th of November 2018. All 13 parties involved gathered at Instituto Pedro Nunes, Coimbra, Portugal.

The ReMAP-consortium has worked in close relationship with stakeholders in the aviation maintenance chain to determine the requirements and needs of such a fleet health management system. Keystone of this system will be an open source IT-platform. Discussions in this second ReMAP-meeting concerned the restrictions, regulations, and corporate policies that airlines have on data sharing and its consequences for this ReMAP-IT-system.

Data access, ReMAP platform requirements, sensor technologies and structural health management were other themes debated during the meeting by the consortium partners.

The project started June 2018 and will last for four years. Every six months the project will gather to discuss the main achievements and identify challenges to be taken. The next meeting will take place in June 2019, in the University of Patras, Greece.
