ABC and CLA team up with SITAONAIR for in-flight cargo monitoring

SITAONAIR is joining forces with AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) and CargoLogicAir (CLA) to launch an internet of things (IoT) platform that will monitor, in real time, the transport of pharmaceutical cargo inflight.
The platform, which is being demonstrated at the Farnborough Airshow, collects data provided by OnAsset Intelligence, its demo partner and cargo-monitoring specialist, during the course of a flight.
This OnAsset Intelligence data is then fed through SITAONAIR’s onboard IoT edge gateway and can then be sent, securely, to its ground data management and dispatch platform, built to monitor the inflight status of carriers’ goods.
Currently, there are no other solutions on the market that provide inflight cargo sensing and freight condition visibility, as perishable and temperature-sensitive goods can only be monitored on the ground, the partners claimed.
Dominique El Bez, SITAONAIR vice president of product & strategy, said: "Our vision is for SITAONAIR to become the enabler of IoT ecosystems onboard aircraft, with an open platform that will be aircraft safety compliant and cost effective.
"Developed in collaboration with the wider aviation industry, our experts and engineers are enthusiastically exploring aircraft IoT functionalities, and with our rate of development, we aim to bring a sweep of aircraft IoT portfolio products to market from 2019.”
