UK-based flight planning specialist Signum Aviation has become the latest company to install Osprey Flight Solutions’ risk analysis and management solution.
The Osprey Flight Risk Assessment System provides operators, such as Signum Aviation, with the ability to instantaneously risk assess every single flight through their own flight planning tools. It provides auditable reports on flights and risk areas to meet compliance requirements and comprehensive email alerts to inform operators about global incidents and events that impact the aviation security environment.
Using Osprey’s cost-effective real-time service, Signum Aviation will benefit from the processing of a huge amount of data (200,000 sources in over 60 languages), all filtered and validated to provide the maximum accuracy, speed and consistency in security analysis.
Osprey will officially launch its new service at the 2017 AVSEC World event in Abu Dhabi next week with gold sponsor status. (14th to 16th November.)
Prior to a formal agreement between the two companies, Signum Aviation has been beta-testing Osprey’s solution these past few months. With its US and European customers requesting in-depth information for compiling risk assessments for upcoming missions either to or overflying Africa, the Middle East or Central and South America, Signum describes Osprey’s offering as an important and essential extension to their service.
Jonathan Gill, Managing Director and Founder of Signum Aviation, explains, “Osprey’s offering is impressively robust. It delivers reliable data and addresses the increasing need for our company to provide on-demand security information to our customers.
“The last 12 months have been our best year to date, and we look forward to the growth which will no doubt come as a result of our investment in cutting-edge software,” Jonathan Gill added.
“We are delighted that such an agile new company sees the inherent value in Osprey Flight Solutions,” stated Andrew Nicholson, Osprey’s CEO. “As the only fully inclusive risk management system for the aviation industry, we look forward to playing a significant role securing the safe and successful operations of Signum Aviation.”
