FPT Software and Airbus have signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) in looking the opportunities to develop aviation technology related to Airbus’s Skywise, a recently launched aviation data platform.
According to the LoI, FPT Software, in short term, will look to create a pool of up to 500 developers and train these software talents of how to utilize Skywise in developing solutions. The training courses about Skywise platform will then be expanded for Airbus’s customers and Skywise users.
FPT Software intends to be a strategic partner of Airbus in consulting, developing applications as well as acting as technical support and helpdesk division regarding services and applications related to Skywise Platform. The cooperation between FPT Software and Airbus will also invest topics such as provision of API for third parties to develop applications on Skywise; migration of applications onto Skywise and maintenance of Skywise applications.
The two companies also agree to investigate how FPT Software can help for developing technology services and solutions for Airbus in the following areas: Innovative Application Development, Predictive maintenance applications, Cloud, Data analysis, Micro services/API design and development from existing components.
Airbus launched Skywise in June 2017. This platform gathers aviation data from various sources such as work orders; spares consumption; components data; aircraft / fleet configuration; on-board sensor data; and flight schedules into one cloud-based platform.
