[SatNews] Latitude Technologies, a global supplier of flight data monitoring, flight following, and SATCOM solutions for regional fleet operators, and AKV Inc., a manufacturer of helicopter engine cycle counters, have jointly announced a technical and business development partnership between the companies.
AKV and Latitude will share in development of technical interfaces between AKV's ETM1000 Exceedance and Trend Monitor and Latitude's award-winning IONode ION100 lightweight flight data recorder. This will enable the engine condition data captured by the ETM1000 to be recorded and automatically forwarded by the IONode ION100 to multiple stakeholders of the operator of the aircraft. Operators will benefit from much quicker access to engine condition data, enabling more timely engine trend analysis and engine maintenance planning.
