This article originally appeared in the March/April edition of the Aircraft IT Flight Ops eJournal. I’ve occasionally spen about how science fiction has affected the future (or should I say, the present?) and how innovation in software and hardware has been influenced by the popular culture of my youth. I’m fairly sure mobile phone
On the Road The road to the adoption of new, progressive process improvements and technology solutions can be long, especially in the aerospace industry. Again, Einstein said it best, “Life is like riding a bicycle—to keep your balance you must keep moving”. To stay afloat in the midst of large-scale process and organization change,

I do not think it means what you think it means….” Inigo Montoya – The Princess Bride This past conference season has been one of the most progressive and encouraging during my time in aerospace
Albert Einstein Said It Best Albert Einstein has been quoted with saying, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” While the attribution is open to dispute, the simplicity of the principle is certainly applicable to many situations—including how companies manage their technical publications, or
Predictions for Content Lifecycle Management for the year ahead are always tricky. You must be mindful to lo far enough ahead to pick an interesting technology or trend, which may not be familiar to everyone, in order to educate and inspire the reader; yet your picks need to be mature enough to be realistically adopted in the chosen timeframe.
Many S1000D projects that I came across my professional life show poor quality of data with respect to the Illustrated Parts Catalog (IPC). Although coding this information in the Illustrated Parts Data (IPD) structure the right way serves you with many benefits like speeding up the maintenance process or optimizing your spare parts ordering process.
Get full visibility and drive better efficiency and safety with eESM and AMOS. Modern eEnabled aircraft and upgraded legacy fleets rely as much on embedded software as precision hardware for their safe, reliable operation — a fact that until recently had relatively little visibility as an area of technical operation optimization. Maintenance programs originally
Mark Ryan is a Senior Software Engineer working out of our Danish offices. The sticky bomb of the Second World War had several faults with its design, often it failed to adhere to dusty or muddy tanks and if a soldier was not careful after pulling the pin, it could easily stick to his
