Government Grant Boosts Flight Safety

2nd October 2007

Flight Data Services (FDS) has won a prestigious UK Government grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) that will help them to improve flight safety in years to come. Working with the Institute of Industrial Research (IIR), FDS are developing Artificial Intelligence techniques that will extract flight safety information from the Gigabytes of recorded flight data that they process each month.

Managing Director, Dave Jesse explains:

We know that hidden in the raw data are clues that will allow airlines to fly more safely, but the information is very difficult to extract. With this grant the IIR can bring a specialist mathematician into the team to tackle this difficult problem.

The goal is to make air travel safer by learning from daily operations and without waiting for an accident to make safety improvements.
