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.

Message from the H2020 ReMAP

- Coordinator Bruno F. Santos

The ReMAP-team would like to express its deepest involvement with the ‘aviationfamily’ in this challenging times caused by the coronacrisis. The necessary restrictions that have been taken by governments to control this virusoutbreak will let the aviationsector suffer considerably. We wish you all the best luck and health, to you and your family.

As an European project with 13 European partners, ReMAP-teammembers already used to work mainly through webmeetings. So cooperation continues and we are keeping our research efforts as good as possible. ReMAP-teammembers work remotely and remain reachable through the common channels. Of course this situation results in some limitations, also for ReMAP, for instance lab tests are postponed and some people are just working part-time in the coming weeks. But safety is our first concern.
