Performance Software has partnered with SmartSky to offer real-time, high precision digital mapping databases to the aviation community.
Performance Software’s dynamic airport, helipad, and vertiport databases are now accessible on SmartSky Network’s unique data exchange service, Skytelligence.
“There is a growing demand for critical, real-time data in the aviation industry and most recently UAM and AAM. By utilising our continuously updated map data and the Skytelligence data exchange platform, our customers can quickly develop their navigation-related apps for use in airports and urban areas,” said Performance Software’s Head of Products, Michael Johnson.
Rich Pilock, SmartSky VP of Product noted: “The Performance Software data service is a bell-weather of the growing connected aircraft ecosystem and its ability to deliver improved safety, efficiency, and comfort. We anticipate this offering to be the first of many collaborations as more data providers and aerospace application developers connect through Skytelligence.”
Performance Software’s Airport Mapping Databases (AMDBs) are now available for download on Skytelligence where they can be integrated with other data such as Notices to Airmen (NOTAMS), through a common storefront that provides application developers with instant access to global data required to deliver real-time, critical advisory applications.
A developer recently used the AMDB data and Skytelligence to merge precision airport data with NOTAMs and localised weather data to produce timely alerts and enhance situational awareness for pilots and operators. This innovative service enables the delivery of information critical for safe departure, approach, and on-ground navigation of piloted and autonomous aircraft.
