Crossmos eTLB now live at SWISS

CROSSMOS® eTLB now live on the entire fleet of SWISS International Air Lines

Beginning of this week SWISS International Air Lines finalized the go live of CROSSMOS electronic tech log on its entire fleet. The last A/C was an A321 – belonging to the group of short-range airplanes which have been rolled out after the long-range A/C and the Bombardier CSeries (CS100).
Every single aircraft of SWISS’s diverse fleet of 94 aircraft is now equipped with a technical logbook which means that on every A/C there are two tablets with the CROSSMOS® software as well as a little router to ensure connectivity.
The main obstacles SWISS had to overcome on its way to paperless aircraft operation had to do with connectivity and the acceptance of the new technology by some of the crew members.
“I am sure that within a short period of time not a single employee wants to go back to the paper process. We can claim to be the first airline that does not use paper throughout the entire process of reporting issues in the flight and cabin logs as well as back-reporting them in the technical log. The whole process from collecting a complaint to archiving a complaint is digitized.”, says Marcus di Laurenzio, project manager of the technical logbook project at SWISS.
The next airline to be equipped with CROSSMOS® is Air Dolomiti, an Italian regional airline with its head office in Dossobuono, Villafranca di Verona.

On the world’s leading Flight Operations event the team of CrossConsense presented CROSSMOS – THE eTLB software.

In order to be well prepared for paperless maintenance, more and more airlines around the world are considering to implement an eTLB into their fleet. And CrossConsense is providing a software solution that works on every AC, no matter which aircraft manufacturer produced it.

Attendees of the conference also had the opportunity to hear about the experiences of SWISS International Air Lines when implementing CROSSMOS in their fleet. The presentation focused on the obstacles SWISS had and managed to overcome when they introduced CROSSMOS (uncharged devices, bad connectivity, narrow bandwidth – general problems which had nothing to do with CROSSMOS itself).

Air Dolomiti goes CROSSMOS

Air Dolomiti signs CROSSMOS® contract

After thoroughly testing CROSSMOS, Air Dolomiti finally decided to implement CrossConsense’s electronic technical logbook in its fleet. Air Dolomiti S.p.A owned by Lufthansa., being an Italian regional airline with its head office in Dossobuono, Villafranca di Verona, Italy, is operating a fleet of 10 Embraer E-195. The new technology will be introduced to speed up all the processes and to minimize errors in TLB data management by crew and maintenance staff. With CROSSMOS both cockpit crew and maintenance staff can report and close or defer technical malfunctions in a simple, clear and smart way.

Marco Tognini, Air Dolomiti’s eTLB Project manager, says:
“I have been involved in eTLB project since 2015 testing several solutions. We decided for CROSSMOS because we immediately appreciate how easy is its use. We are confident that nobody will miss paper once it will be implemented in our fleet. I am sure that it will probably be the eTLB for airlines in near future!”

CrossConsense UserDay and GoLive Party CROSSMOS

Successful CrossConsense UserDay and GoLive Party CROSSMOS®

Last week we at CrossConsense had our 4th UserDay with about 70 guests. During these 2 days, speakers from different companies as Aerospace Software Developments, Armac Systems, easybrowse, ILS, Inmarsat, Swiss AviationSoftware, SWISS, Teledyne as well as speakers from the CrossConsense team presented subjects around aviation. While listening to a lot of entertaining and interesting presentations, the visitors could not only learn something about the “big” subjects in aviation – Big Data, paperless maintenance, predictive maintenance, connectivity – but also had the opportunity to widen their knowledge in regards to the daily business of airlines like e.g. inventory optimization, buying and selling spare parts etc.

One of the highlights was the presentation of CROSSMOS® electronic logbook in which one could learn how easy it is to enter items like bird strikes into an eTL.

The GoLive Party of CROSSMOS® as well as the UserDay took place in an impressive setting at TheAircraft, a venue with a CheckIn, a cabin with aircraft seats and an original aircraft turbine that serves as speaker’s desk.

At the end of these successful days, the audience was taken along into a future with Black Holes serving as a possible solution to satisfy upcoming computational demand.

CROSSMOS ELB now Live on SWISS International Air Lines

CROSSMOS went live on SWISS International Air Lines

On January 28th, 2016 CROSSMOS went live on a BOEING 777 of SWISS International Air Lines on its flight from Seattle to Zurich. The introduction of CROSSMOS (ELB) with the first flight of SWISS International Air Lines B777 is another step forward into the paperless future. The new ELB at SWISS consists of two Microsoft Surface 3 tablets – the cockpit and cabin devices, plus a small Swisscom Router which enables device interconnectivity via a WLAN and connectivity via GSM to a Maintenance Server.

“With the use of an ELB we are promised substantial improvements in quality and efficiency. Through the digitalisation of the data we secure the transfer of error free readings on the current overall real time status of the aircraft including all maintenance and crew activity.“, says Marcus di Laurenzio, project manager of the SWISS Electronic Log Book project.

With this data SWISS improves the awareness of all those involved in the technical condition of the aircraft. In particular, the cockpit and cabin crew will be completely exempt from the paper processes. An improved and faster communication between cabin and cockpit devices will simplify the overview and status of aircraft and ensure a generally better overview.

For the Maintenance team the processes are simplified, in that log entries are digitized and must no longer be input by hand. The online connection allows a fast bi-directional flow of information between Flight Crew and Maintenance.

“Swiss International Air Lines have decided to work together with CrossConsense, as it was decided that only a bottom up development of an ELB could accommodate all the requirements of SWISS. At the time of the start of the project no such solution was available for evaluation in the market.“, says Peter Wojahn, Chief Technical Officer at SWISS International Air Lines.

The combination of SWISS International Air Lines, SWISS AviationSoftware and a couple of other airline customers was ideal for us to develop a standard and easy-to-use system.“, states Udo Stapf, CEO of CrossConsense.
