Posted 24 April 2019 · Add Comment

Smart4Aviation’s Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) application, Smart MOBILE, has been certified for use on Inmarsat’s award-winning SB-S digital aircraft operations platform.


Smart MOBILE is a unique solution that allows pilots, cabin crew and other airline employees to access, complete and submit documentation quickly and efficiently on their mobile devices via a single portal, helping to increase productivity, operational awareness and efficiency.

It also enables peer-to-peer communication, ACARS messaging and provides instant access to briefing packages and important flight-related information, such as up-to-date weather reports and potential load, fuel and hazard alerts.

The application can be tailored to match each airline customer’s exact requirements to deliver tangible cost savings. Benefits include a reduction in the frequency and duration of flight delays, together with improvements to on-time performance. In addition, increased automation and real-time information translates to a reduction in workload, resulting in less bottlenecks for both flight and cabin crew.

Smart MOBILE is the latest in a range of value-added operational and safety applications to be certified via Inmarsat’s Aviation Certified Application Provider (CAP) programme for SB-S. Other available applications include flight profile optimisation, weather information, digital navigation charts and aircraft diagnostics and performance monitoring.

Mike Lewis, CEO of Smart4Aviation, said: “We are excited about this partnership, as it allows us to take another major step forward and enhance our products within a connected aircraft environment. Inmarsat is a leading provider of satellite communications solutions to airlines, operators and passengers worldwide, keeping people and systems connected at thousands of feet in the air.

“Together, we will be able to provide real-time situational awareness to flight crew during all flight phases. These benefits will result in more efficient decision making, leading to less disruption resulting in increased cost savings and enhanced flight safety. Together with our new partner, we are ready for the future.”

John Broughton, Senior Vice President of Aircraft Operations and Safety, Inmarsat Aviation, said: “Smart4Aviation is a global industry-leader in proving best-in-class EFB technology to airlines. With the launch of Smart MOBILE on Inmarsat’s SB-S, we look forward to bringing Smart4Aviation’s innovative solutions to our commercial airline customers, driving operational efficiency and enhancing safety with a cost-effective, tailored offering."

The SB-S digital aircraft operations platform is powered by Inmarsat’s advanced global L-band satellite constellation, which has underpinned safety services for 40 years. Inmarsat are scheduled to launch two additional L-band payloads in 2020 and 2021, strengthening its services over this spectrum.
