Strut Data Collection System
Our inaugural product, the Strut Data Collection System (SDCS), is a leading-edge onboard aircraft weight and balance measurement system that collects landing gear strut pressures from each gear position. Through our Aero Source Data offerings, this data is communicated to a secure off-site data center managed by Satcom Direct where proprietary Avix algorithms provide pre-departure validation of primary load buildup methods, load manifest accuracy, touchdown load analysis, and proprietary data analytics across all flight segments.
These real-time monitoring and validation programs safeguard against human error, provide a tool to increase fuel efficiency, improve reliability, OTP and turn times while also enabling operators to reclaim weight and balance curtailments. We hold the Supplemental Type Certificate for the SDCS on the Boeing 737NG family of aircraft, with additional STCs under development.
