GPMS and Truth Data Insights announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together to offer customers a powerful new suite of data acquisition, analytics, and services. By pairing GPMS’s advanced HUMS + Flight Data Management (FDM) solution with Truth Data’s specialized FDM analysis and Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) services, operators can get broad spectrum data, analytics, and support services needed to improve both maintenance and safety programs.
Todd Powers, GPMS VP of Sales, stated that more and more helicopter operators, including air medical transport programs, are incorporating sophisticated monitoring technology into their operations. “GPMS’s Foresight MX delivers a great package of advanced HUMS and detailed FDM information,” he said. “However, to incorporate this flight data into a FOQA program or to fully utilize it within a training program requires expertise some customers don’t have in house.” Powers says that is where Truth Data comes in.
Truth Data provides specialized FDM analysis and FOQA services that are customizable based on aircraft type, mission, or other user-defined parameters. By combining these services with the breakthrough aircraft monitoring of GPMS’s Foresight MX, customers will have access to a greater range of information with much more detail.
“The market is asking what they should integrate onboard to acquire the data they need to improve operations and safety,” said Tom Nied, Director of Operations at Truth Data Insights. “Foresight MX provides customers with a two-in-one solution, acquiring both machine data needed for HUMS and flight data needed to track exceedances and analyze pilot behavior. Truth Data offers FOQA services on top of this stack, to complete the solution for operators wanting to optimize both maintenance and safety.”
For air medical operators, this collaboration is particularly important. Said Powers, “When there is a patient in need, your aircraft has to be ready to respond. Our HUMS provides key insights for maintainers to ensure readiness and machine safety.” Truth Data already counts large, air medical operators among its customer base and Nied explains that it is also important to make sure that human factors are considered. “By combining GPMS’s FDM data with the analysis and FOQA services provided by Truth Data, we can help ensure crew readiness and cover this side of the equation as well,” he said.
Helicopter Emergency Medical Services will be topics of much discussion over the next few days at the 2022 Air Medical Transport Conference in Tampa, FL.
