Safran Electrical & Power has signed a technological and commercial co-operation agreement with Diota, a leading publisher of augmented reality software solutions for industry.
Safran Electrical & Power (formerly Labinal Power Systems) has announced that it has signed a technological and commercial co-operation agreement with Diota. The agreement relates to R&D work on the design, development and operation of innovative solutions using augmented and optimized reality, for Safran Electrical & Power products, equipment and services.
Diota, a leading publisher of augmented reality software solutions for industry, provides solutions that enable manufacturers to closely link digital data to on-the-ground operations and thereby boost the performance and traceability of their operations and processes. Last fall, Safran Corporate Venture announced that it was taking a stake in the company.
This agreement will see Diota working with the Safran unit, to develop products and services around the maintenance and installation validation of electrical systems for aviation and aerospace applications.
One application is being presented at the Safran booth at the Paris Air Show (Hall 2A – No.228-252): a fault-finding tool which has been designed in co-operation with the start-up Win MS and which allows the operator to see and locate electrical faults via a digital tablet, through aircraft walls (which contain numerous wires). This revolutionary tool is expected to help reduce maintenance times significantly.
