Flight Data Monitoring and Operations Quality Assurance

SystemX has the capability to record flight data directly from any avionics databus, from any network interface, and/or from any equipment that contains an SNMP, Syslog, API, or web-based configuration GUI. It can be used to provide complete data sources for Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA) and Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) programs, or can be used to augment an existing data collection system.

Data is stored in encrypted, signed databases on SystemX hardware. Data can be offloaded either during flight using a SATCOM system or on the ground using integrated LTE and WiFi radios, or any other connectivity option available on the aircraft.

Individual data samples can be prioritized based on source and contents so that critical data can be streamed from the aircraft in real-time over any available SATCOM/ATG interface, complete flight data can be offloaded on the ground over a higher-bandwidth terrestrial wireless interface, and archived data can be stored onboard the aircraft and accessed at a later date to assist with incident investigations.

SystemX supports the generation of custom rules and algorithms so that events like high rate of descent or below glidescope descent can be identified and flagged to an operations center in real-time (or during post flight processing).

Data collected by SystemX can be accessed on a SystemX Ground Server and can be extracted for use in any other offline tool. In addition, CCX Technologies can provide assistance in customizing data formats for specific applications.


  • Collect data from any Avionics Databus (ARINC-429, ARINC-717, MIL-1553, AFDX, ARINC-664)
  • Collect data from networked devices (Syslog, SNMP, APIs, web-based GUIs)
  • Collect data from a ground-based data stream, i.e. ADS-B data aggregators
  • Provide real-time event indications based on custom rulesets and algorithms
  • All data saved in an encrypted and signed database
  • Supports real-time data streaming
  • Selective data offloaded depending on connectivity interface in use

Key Benefits

  • Improve overall fleet safety by monitoring for undesirable flight events
  • Collected data can be analyzed by 3rd party applications to minimize aircraft downtime, minimize fuel consumption, and minimize flight operations costs
  • It can be used as part of a program to conform to transportation agency regulatory requirements like AC 120-82
