A leader in the aviation industry for more than 30 years, Schneider Electric is the first provider to convert aviation weather data into GIS shape files. The data includes the industry’s best precipitation forecasts — for the past eight years, audits performed by the independent third party company ForecastWatch.com have shown that Schneider Electric forecasts outperformed all others in the industry — including those of the US National Weather Service. The company is also the first choice of more than 50 commercial carriers along with Oil & Gas and Air Medical helicopter operators for its weather services. TrooTrax is also a leading choice in these markets for it’s web-based tracking services offered though OEMs such as Honeywell Aerospace.
Through the Troo Corporation partnership with Schneider Electric, TrooTrax live aircraft monitoring brings in more layers of information important to dispatchers and others involved with flight operations. This includes up-to-the-minute and forecasted weather for anywhere in the world and interactive layers of data geo-referenced against aeronautical charts, flight paths, airport databases and even FAA ASDI data and the latest nearby flight zone restrictions. “It’s hard to imagine a more comprehensive view of factors affecting flights, before, during and after flight” says Frank Friesacher, CEO of Troo, “bringing Schneider Electric weather data into the TrooTrax unified view of live aircraft data and flight factors along with its automatic alerting, dispatcher-controlled map layers and data analytics, means the aircraft operator now has the ultimate tool for safe and effective mission management”.
