The Arconics Aircraft Software Platform
Mobile commerce is growing exponentially every year. Soon, the vast majority of transactions and time online will be from mobile devices. This presents extraordinary opportunities for airlines. Few other industries have the customer insight, loyalty and trust that airlines have earned. No other industry has comparable uninterrupted time with their customers while delivering service.
The smartest airlines understand that mobile apps will extend engagement with customers far beyond the in-flight experience. Passengers will install airline mobile apps to access entertainment and information services onboard. When thoughtfully designed, passengers will use those mobile apps as a trusted source of travel-related products and services after the flight and on future journeys.
Relevant offers presented at the right time are a valuable service for the passenger, and an opportunity for the airline to capture a portion of all
spend over the entire trip, opening repeat revenue streams and deeper brand engagement.
Mobile technologies can also help airlines reduce costs, improve efficiency, and increase safety and compliance. Crew, flight ops, engineering and ground ops make smarter, safer decisions by having the right information at their fingertips on mobile devices. In the cockpit, EFB brings huge savings by reducing fuel consumption and turnaround times, and improving operational efficiency.
In the cabin and on the ground, connected apps increase operational efficiency by replacing slow and error-prone paper-based processes. Connecting staff across the airlines improves passenger experience by helping to recover service issues before they escalate.
As passenger expectations increase, mobile devices are evolving too fast for traditional aviation technology to keep pace. The airlines that win will
The Arconics Platform is an open software platform that runs on multiple avionic systems, providing end-to-end communications, control, data management, tracking and analytics capabilities
be those that can develop the technical, operational, and commercial flexibility to seize these new opportunities.
The Arconics Aircraft Software Platform is designed for the connected aircraft. The Platform hosts onboard applications for cockpit and cabin. It provides a comprehensive set of APIs to facilitate: Data transfer on/off the aircraft. Data channel management, routing data via
satcom, 4G and physical media. Application deployment across the fleet. ARINC 717 and 429 databus access. Integration adaptors for popular airline systems.
The Platform also allows mobile apps to exchange data securely. This is available for both iOS and Windows tablet devices. The Platform runs on all popular aircraft servers.
The Arconics Aircraft Software Platform helps airlines to develop and deploy mobile apps for passengers and crew in weeks instead of years. It allows the airline to quickly deliver service differentiation, operational efficiencies, better use of data, and new ancillary revenue opportunities.
Arconics believes that an integrated mobile strategy will separate the best from the rest over the coming five years. We are determined to give our customers the unified, open enterprise platform for mobile apps that they will need to succeed

When pilots have the right information at the right time, they make smarter and safer decisions. When flight ops, engineering and ground ops know whats happening to the aircraft in real-time, they can respond quickly and reduce operational costs.
EFB applications have evolved rapidly in recent years. Low-cost tablets have made EFB technology accessible to all airlines, but current EFB solutions typically require multiple standalone applications which must be managed and updated separately. Because standalone apps cann
