HCL helps to transform an Aerospace customer’s conventional system testing approach to ensure business continuity in the new normal
Sam Swaro - Associate Vice President | December 16, 2020

While the entire world struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic and its cascading repercussions, it has become increasingly difficult for businesses to sell products that involve customers to 'look, touch and feel’. When it comes to previewing a Cabin Management System (CMS) that goes on an aircraft, it can only be imagined how challenging it can become. Some aerospace industry leaders faced the similar challenge when the pandemic first hit shores. Typically, the process involves inviting customer pilots, crew, and dealers for an immersive experience. With increasing travel restrictions worldwide, the aerospace companies had to figure out a new way to run tests with its customers and dealers. HCL has been supporting design and development of Aerospace Cabin Systems products for leading organizations for over a decade and continues to do so to support their business in the new normal.

How 21st century technologies like iot/ai/ml and biometrics will help reshape the future of aviation
Sam Swaro - Associate Vice President | August 26, 2020
311 Views

The aviation industry experts are expecting a U-shaped recovery of the industry, which translates into a prolonged and stretched, slow paced rebound. However, the initial symptoms of recovery in the commercial aspects might begin to surface only by the end of the calendar year. Mostly, when travelers begin to regain their confidence and opting to go back to airports, and taking planes for their domestic and international travel requirements.

Technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) have dominated conversations in the tech world, for the past decade. In the pre-COVID world, smart airports and manufacturers of smart planes were looking forward to deploying the latest IoT technology to deliver delightful passenger experiences. This would also have been significant in making up losses in the business by bringing in operational efficiencies, lowering AOG (Aircraft on Ground) time, generating ancillary revenues and safety. However, in the post pandemic scenario, it is enormously vital to increase passenger confidence, bring people back to the airports, planes, and have them fly safely from point A to point B. Passenger safety and hygiene are centric most important factors that will impact other the other factors like passenger experience, ancillary revenue, operational efficiencies will revolve around passenger safety and hygiene. Connected User, Connected Products, Connected Infrastructure and Connected Operations are the four elements that would be key to the success of an Airport, an Airliner, and an A&D Equipment Manufacturer post COVID.

The global pandemic has brought the world to a standstill, adversely affecting the economies and industries across the globe. Aviation industry has also taken a massive blow from the virus outbreak. The global fleet has been grounded for months now after witnessing tremendous growth in the last two decades. The recent promising trends of increasing leisure travel, rise in incomes, global trade etc. had contributed to the accelerated growth of the industry, and a soaring future. The last two decades however, were not without roadblocks. Many incidents caused setbacks to the industry but the resilient the aviation industry has been in overcoming the bumps and speed breakers each time. Few economic drivers have been favorably behind the industry’s efforts to bounce after each disruption. For now, the industry will surely hunker down and focus on survival.

The disruption that COVID has caused to aviation and aerospace industry is deep and wide. However, the underlying economic drivers are the source of optimism for the aviation industry. There is no better alternative to air-travel to cover long distances in a safe and efficient manner. Virtual alternatives can supplement human experience, but cannot replace actual human interactions. As the world starts to restore the pre COVID status, business, trade, tourism and globalization will lead to promising times ahead. Meanwhile the industry player will have to focus on various measures to help their customers as well as themselves to respond, adapt and reinvent for the times to come.
