HMM Aviation and Sagem plan to jointly offer

Dubai, December 8th, 2010

During the MEBA Conference & Exhibition in Dubai, HMM Aviation and Sagem (Safran group) signed a letter of intent to deploy Sagem's C-FOQA application on iPad in the Middle East for the business aviation market, covering both airplanes and helicopters.

HMM Aviation is a Dubai-based company that provides services and systems for commercial aviation, business aviation and airports.

Sagem's C-FOQA on iPad reflects the company's expertise in the analysis of flight data. This latest-generation solution allows business aviation and helicopter operators to display and monitor their flight data on iPad, a new service that is directly related to Sagem's eGDM Services offer.

Sagem's eGDM Services (enhanced global data management) is an innovative service offering allowing airlines and operators to enhance their operating efficiency based on the analysis of flight data. It quickly interprets and delivers all operating data for the aircraft in a given fleet.

Sagem offers market-leading flight data monitoring systems, enabling operators to enhance fleet maintenance management and reduce costs (MOQA: Maintenance Operation Quality Assurance), while also improving flight safety via FOQA (Flight Operation Quality Assurance). These systems are already deployed by more than 500 operators worldwide, including more than 140 airlines.
