Sagem launches new aviation services offering, Cassiopée, at Paris Air Show 2011

Paris, June 17, 2011

Sagem (Safran group) is launching its new service offering for airlines, business aircraft and helicopter operators, Cassiopée, at this year's Paris Air Show. Cassiopée is a modular service offering, comprising five families of innovative services:

  • Flight Safety & Risk Management
  • Maintenance Performance
  • Flight Operations
  • Airline Organization
  • Operating Cost Savings.

Through its new Cassiopée offering, Sagem can deliver a complete slate of services for ground and flight operations, from complete packages to solutions custom-tailored to specific needs. These services are designed to meet the needs of all types of operators, whether major, regional or low-cost airlines, cargo carriers, etc., as well as private aircraft owners and leasing companies, aircraft and equipment manufacturers, repair shops and insurance companies.

Given the evolving management approach at airlines and other operators, especially the need to enhance risk management, reduce operating costs (maintenance, fuel, etc.) and decrease environmental impact (CO2 in particular), the Cassiopée offering is tailored to the specific needs of each type of customer. This is particularly well illustrated by the iPad-based C-FOQA (Corporate Flight Operations Quality Assurance) service for business aircraft and helicopter operators.

Sagem has drawn on more than 20 years of experience in the management and analysis of flight data to develop its Cassiopée product line, especially through its AGS (Analysis Ground Station) solutions and in-depth understanding of the requirements of some 160 airline customers.

Sagem also capitalizes on 60 years of experience in the acquisition of flight data, with its Aircraft Condition Monitoring Systems (AGMS) and FDM Suite solutions. After introducing the online e-AGS platform, Sagem has developed its eGDM Services and expanded its range of expertise by acquiring Alizair (flight data analysis) and Printair (airline regulatory compliance) to construct Cassiopée. Sagem also consolidates this new offering through various partnerships, for example with Snecma to handle engine operating data.

Cassiopée is based on the SGDS (Safran Global Data Services) application, which ensure the global security and availability of data from flight data recorders and other onboard systems.
