Collins Aerospace announced it has completed the acquisition of FlightAware, a leading digital aviation company providing global flight tracking solutions, predictive technology, analytics and decision-making tools.

FlightAware, led by James Sulak, will be part of the company’s newly formed Connected Aviation Solutions business unit which will be exclusively focused on advancing Collins’ connected ecosystem solutions.

“Across the industry we serve, we are focused on helping our customers turn data into value, enabling them to increase efficiency and reduce cost while improving the sustainability of their operations,” said Stephen Timm, president, Collins Aerospace. “With FlightAware onboard, our new Connected Aviation Solutions business unit combines the best of Collins’ aircraft systems with established data networks and connectivity solutions, together with the recognized leader in data collection and analytics. We are well-positioned to launch a new generation of smarter digital solutions.”

“This delivers the potential to reduce unplanned maintenance, improve dispatch reliability, and to know exactly when the plane will be on the runway or at the terminal to keep flight schedules on time,” said Jennifer Schopfer, president of Collins’ Connected Aviation Solutions.

Collins and its sister business, Raytheon Intelligence & Space, are leaders in using data to improve the air travel experience and provide a wide range of air traffic management, digital flight deck and predictive analysis tools to improve route efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of air travel.

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense

11/24/2020 | Jeff Demmin, Keysight Technologies
Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). As the benefits of Moore’s Law became more difficult and more expensive to achieve, the organization decided to publish a final version in 2016. The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), with the realization that heterogeneous integration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an important enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry.
