SmartSky - Finally WifI that Wows

Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueTeledyne Controls, the aircraft data management business and subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies, has obtained CAA Supplemental Type Certification (STC) approval for installation of its Aircraft Cabin Environment Sensor (ACES) on the Airbus A320 aircraft series.

Teledyne ACES is an autonomous solution that enables aircraft operators to monitor, measure and analyze air quality in the cabin and flight deck, to help them ensure a safe and comfortable flying experience for passengers and crew. Teledyne ACES was FAA certified for the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 series last year and has been implemented at four carriers in the US, UK, and Australia.  

“A recent flyer survey (1) revealed that 87% of passengers would feel safer if their airline was monitoring cabin air quality,” explained Mehrdad Radmehr, President of Teledyne Aerospace Electronics. “ACES is the only certified solution on the market today that can address this need and give airline executives, and customer experience and maintenance teams the ability to monitor cabin air quality on their aircraft. By implementing long-term cabin air quality monitoring fleet-wide, aircraft operators will show leadership on this topic and demonstrate their commitment to the health and well-being of their passengers and crew.” 

With wireless connectivity to a secure cloud service portal, Teledyne ACES laboratory-grade sensor technology continuously monitors and records the air quality in the cabin and flight deck for potentially harmful contaminants.  The extensive air quality data collected during flight is available in real-time on any mobile device through the ACES mobile app, and via secure web access to the ACES Cloud Service Portal, which provides configurable dashboards, custom alerts, and comprehensive reports that enable the operator to validate the air quality in the airplane, identify emerging issues and document maintenance efforts.

Teledyne ACES was specifically designed for the aviation industry. It combines Teledyne Technologies’ world-leading expertise in air quality and gas monitoring, along with Teledyne Controls’ decades of experience in designing, manufacturing, and certifying aircraft data management and connectivity systems.
