Pratt & Whitney Joins SITA’s Data-brokering Platform

Our Bureau - : Apr 28, 2022 - : 12:06 am

Pratt & Whitney and IT provider SITA have signed an agreement for full flight data retrieval and processing in support of predictive maintenance of aircraft engines.

SITA’s cloud-based data-brokering platform e-Aircraft DataHub collects, transforms, and distributes full flight data collected from hundreds of sensors on the aircraft measuring, for example, engine section temperatures and pressures. This data helps Pratt & Whitney provide its EngineWise Insights Plus engine health monitoring services to airlines.

Pratt & Whitney is the first original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in the U.S. to join SITA’s e-Aircraft DataHub for big data analytics.

“Once an engine is produced, it then relies on Pratt & Whitney and our technicians to maintain, repair and overhaul it whenever needed,” said Joe Sylvestro, senior vice president of Aftermarket & Sustainment Operations at Pratt & Whitney. “Working with data delivery solution providers like SITA, our capability of collecting full-flight data is expanded to a larger aircraft population. More customers are able to benefit from our engineers’ and technicians’ expertise and data-driven insights leading to proactive, preventative maintenance.”

SITA’s e-Aircraft DataHub enables secure and easy data exchange between airlines and their operating partners such as Pratt & Whitney. Through advanced data processing, the platform provides structured, cleaned, filtered, coherent, and consistent output data across airlines and aircraft types without the need to add or modify aircraft equipment.

“e-Aircraft DataHub is a multi-fleet and hardware-free solution, allowing Pratt & Whitney to retrieve data from virtually any aircraft and any airline around the world, while these airlines remain in full control of their data,” said Yann Cabaret, CEO, SITA For Aircraft. “Through SITA’s unique data-brokering platform, Pratt & Whitney and airlines can collaborate effectively to gain invaluable, data-driven insights to improve their services across the board.”
