Guardian Mobility Inc. (GMI) has announced the launch of its G4 Additional Telemetry Units (ATU). Helicopters are required to report ATU data to the USFS. The G4 meets and exceeds the requirement through the use of 14 inputs to report the ATU data.
As part of the development, the company also announced the G4 is Flight Data Monitoring System (FDMS) AC 135-14B-compliant in advance of the April 23, 2018 requirement for Air Ambulance operators.
Operators using the G4 have the ability to report directly to governmental agencies and additionally, when coupled with SilverEye Aviation mapping and data platform, the G4 comprehensively enhances their operation.
“These developments are significantly demonstrating the versatility of the G4 platform that continues to grow,” said Stephane Momy, chief operating officer for Guardian. “This is part of a substantial value for customer needs, the platform meets and exceeds the requirements today and is still expandable in the future. Our progressive growth and product development is showing strong results for the company while providing reliable, outstanding support and service to our clients. Adding these capabilities is continuing to elevate our corporate profile in the helicopter market.”
All GMI devices, as well as third party tracking products, are visible via GMI’s web-based situational awareness and management tool – SilverEye Aviation.
GMI’s products are approved for government-mandated Automatic Flight Following (AFF) and are used by fleet operators worldwide for flight data monitoring (FDM) to support Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) and Maintenance Operations Quality Assurance (MOQA) as part of a Safety Management System (SMS).
