IAI Bedek aviation group to evaluate Aero-Nexus for its line maintenance solution
Israel Aerospace Industry’s Bedek aviation group through its Hangar Innovation Lab (HLB) has selected the Aero-Nexus software, a product of the Israeli company Bio-Nexus , to perform a PoC at its line maintenance services. The project will enable IAI to test the full range of the Aero-Nexus platform. The results of the initial phase will be used to fine tune IAI requirements for a final commercial version.
The Aero-Nexus system focuses on the aeronautics & technicians for management of line Maintenance & Pre-flight preparation, providing a mobile user interface for line maintenance and pre-flight preparation management. The solution will improve the performance of ground crews in addition to the improvement of technical readiness and availability of airplanes and manpower. As a result, it reduces flight delays and the total annual maintenance costs. The Aero-Nexus system leads to better efficiency and flexibility in line maintenance planning, reliability on performing protocols accurately and prevention of human errors and eventually leads to excellence of airline services.
Aero-Nexus accomplishes the above by digitizing the current manual procedures and integrating them in real time for relevant usage and supervision functions
Currently more than half of all line maintenance performed at Ben Gurion International airport are performed by IAI’s BEDEK,
Ms. Zviya Baron, Head of HLB: “Hangar is a newly launched lab which aims at selecting innovative technologies that answer the commercial aviation arena. As such, we provide Israeli start-up companies with a unique business model that creates a win-win for both sides. Aero-Nexus is an excellent example, as we provide the technical expertise and a test bed, while Bio-Nexus provides an interesting software solution which for the first time will be tested in an MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) workshop, such as BEDEK.”
Ztiki Fuchs , CEO Bio-Nexus: “we are proud that IAI as an industry leader chose to use our advanced platform. IAI maintains a very high level of service which and we hope that by using the Aero-Nexus platform it will be able to achieve its growth plan in the coming years”
This venture is part of a larger digitization process we are performing at BEDEK aviation group, says Assaf Tamir, CTIO of BEDEK as a fundamental element of the initiation process of the new Aviation Group at IAI.
