ULD firm Unilode and tracking technology company OnAsset are upgrading their ULD tracking partnership to include in-flight visibility.
Unilode will utilise OnAsset’s SENTRY 600 FlightSafe gateways on aircraft to allow the monitoring of ULDs while in flight. The rollout has already begun, the partners said.
The gateways can link with equipment using Bluetooth, cellular, Wi-Fi and LoRa connectivity.
Ross Marino, Unilode Aviation Solutions chief executive, said: “We are excited to upgrade Unilode’s ULD reader network to the new SENTRY 600 gateway which will allow us to enhance our global network reach and reliability, and enable us and our customers to reap all benefits of our digital solutions in the years to come.
“Unilode is committed to improving the data capture to promote more efficient operations and increase asset availability by reducing missing, lost, and idle ULDs which drive up inefficiencies and costs, and to enable airlines to realise additional revenue stream opportunities.”
Adam Crossno, OnAsset Intelligence chief executive, added: “Extending real-time visibility to the aircraft itself, during flight and ground operations, is a real game changer because we can provide critical operational visibility at the very edge where it counts most.
“We can now deliver seamless location, status and chain-of-custody visibility across all aspects of the aviation supply chain.”
OnAsset claimed the SENTRY 600 is the only such device fully compliant with aviation regulations for installation on aircraft.
