Smarter Aerospace

Smart aerospace supply chain solutions to optimise your asset lifecycle.

Visionist Consulting

Avoid penalties and optimise your operations with full-visibility aerospace asset audit technology

The aerospace industry comprises some of the most expensive assets in any industry with one of the highest operating costs. Although many aerospace bases invest in some kind of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and aerospace supply chain software, there is potential for greater integration. Real-time asset tracking and maintenance technology provides unsurpassed visibility and control, allowing your base to eliminate manual errors with fully automated asset management processes.

Our state-of-the-art smart aerospace solutions are:

Smarter Technologies’ real-time aerospace supply chain solutions provide full-visibility inventory and asset management—at any time, from anywhere. With a complete overview of your base’s assets, you’ll be able to:

  • Overtly track, monitor and recover aerospace assets throughout the supply chain
  • Save time and money with greater efficiency and security
  • Track key personnel
  • Streamline your supply chain
  • Prevent asset theft and damage
  • Utilise sensor technology to manage fuel levels and generators
  • Enable predictive asset maintenance schedules
  • Enhance your site’s asset performance and general productivity

How it works?

Smarter Technologies’ privately-owned Orion Data Network passes encrypted data over the licence-free 433 frequency. Its long-range, low power data enables real-time tracking anywhere within any Orion zone.

Orion tags and sensors attached to your assets offer real-time location-based services. These small, battery-powered tags used a combination of low-power radio, GPS and non-GPS technologies. Tags are available in various shapes and sizes – from AA to D – with varying sizes of SLA battery that will last for up to three years.

Unlike any other GPS tracking systems available, the Orion Data Network opens up a whole new world within the asset visibility solutions industry. The system uses RSSI (signal strength based positioning system), which offers near GPS positioning solutions without the requirements for ongoing GPS tags – the result is that RSSI tags are much smaller and more efficient, whilst still reporting in real time.

Data is presented on your bespoke dashboard, which shows the exact location all tags tagged assets at any given time. You can control access levels for different personnel so that why only see the assets relevant to them. With real-time asset location at your fingertips, you can optimise your base’s operations, increase productivity, save costs and avoid penalties.

Get full asset visibility for optimum performance.

The Orion Data Network offers a truly unique way to track and manage all assets on an aerospace site and beyond.

Aerospace Asset Tracking

Imagine having full visibility of all your assets in real time, at all times? With Smarter Technologies’ Orion Data Network, smart asset management becomes a reality. Because our tags have a battery life of up to three years, there’s less danger of batteries running down and being forgotten or neglected. Our SIM-free technology also makes the solution more cost-effective than GPS and other tagging systems.

Predictive Maintenance Schedules

Servicing aeroplane engines is a cost-intensive undertaking. In most cases, the purchasing of equipment and the requisite numbers of spares is based on estimated usage, which means that there can be significant variation between planned and actual usage over time. With Smarter Technologies’ asset management solutions, you’ll gain a complete and accurate understanding of exactly what inventory you already have, as well as the parts frequently required. This data can be used to develop predictive maintenance schedules and inventory management, allowing you to shop and service smart!

Aerospace Supply Chain Optimisation

One of the key drivers in any supply chain is the turnaround time of components. If the turnaround time for your base’s engine maintenance is slow due to invisible bottlenecks in your supply chain, clients will either need to purchase additional spares or entire aeroplanes, or risk causing downtime in their operational schedules. With real-time asset management solutions, you’ll be able to access and identify the location of the particular parts you need in the palm of your hand, increasing existing asset utilisation and saving money.

Avoid Penalties

With greater asset availability and visibility in a logistics-based system, you can cut down on fines by ensuring that schedules are adhered to. Meet and prove SLAs with smart time-stamps indicating when an asset has entered or left.
