Sagem's expands Cassiopée range of flight services with Flight Ops Efficiency

Paris Air Show, June 19, 2013.

Sagem (Safran) is launching a new aeronautical service at the Paris Air Show, Flight Ops Efficiency, designed to reduce operating costs for both airlines and business aircraft operators.

This new service is part of Cassiopée, a "constellation" of aeronautical services offered by Sagem. Flight Ops Efficiency provides a precise analysis of each flight, covering all route stages, from startup and taxiing, to cruise, approach and arrival, and offers recommendations to enhance operating procedures for individual aircraft and fleets.

Sagem's new Flight Ops Efficiency service also provides better control over all aircraft systems, optimizing their use to more efficiently address the evolving business conditions faced by airlines and other operators. This new service will have its own Web portal for technical questions, joining Cassiopée's other online services.

Cassiopée is a modular offering designed to address pilots' and operators' needs. It enhances flight safety and risk management, and optimizes maintenance and flight operations for all airlines.

The excellent results achieved by Cassiopée services draw on Sagem's proven expertise in the development and production of avionics, as well as its experience in flight data acquisition systems, such as aircraft condition monitoring systems (ACMS) and flight data monitoring.

Cassiopée has already been chosen by more than 160 airlines and business aircraft operators.
