Safran Electrical & Power announces its partnership with Diota
Safran Electrical & Power has announced that it has signed a technological and commercial co-operation agreement with Diota. This agreement relates to R&D work on the design, development and operation of innovative solutions using augmented and optimized reality, for Safran Electrical & Power products, equipment and services.
Diota, a leading publisher of augmented reality software solutions for industry, provides solutions that enable manufacturers to closely link digital data to on-the-ground operations and thereby boost the performance and traceability of their operations and processes. Last fall, Safran Corporate Venture announced that it was taking a stake in the company.
This agreement will see Diota working with the world leader in aviation wiring, to develop products and services around the maintenance and installation validation of electrical systems for aviation and aerospace applications.
One application is being presented at the Safran booth at the Paris Air Show: a fault-finding tool which has been designed in co-operation with the start-up Win MS and which allows the operator to see and locate electrical faults via a digital tablet, through aircraft walls (which contain numerous wires). This revolutionary tool will help reduce maintenance times significantly.
"Our strategic partnership with Diota will allow us to move ahead more quickly with our strategy of creating value for aircraft manufacturers and airlines. Both the technological and cultural aspects of this start-up will support Safran Electrical & Power's disruptive approach," said Sébastien Jaulerry, Vice President of the EWIS Eurasia division of Safran Electrical & Power, welcoming the move.
"This agreement will help us to get our assistance and monitoring solutions for aviation operators to market more quickly. It also gives us an opportunity to reinforce our current wiring maintenance offering for airlines around the world," stated Diota CEO Lionnel Joussemet.
