UAS Maintenance Program: A Make or Break for Operations

THE CHALLENGE

ArgenTech’s UAS maintenance program consisted of multiple technicians using disjointed spreadsheets and other outdated methods of tracking maintenance data. UAS maintenance needs were often overlooked due to the decentralized process of data capture. ArgenTech was seeking a comprehensive tool that would enable proper documentation for all stakeholders involved with UAS operations.

THE SOLUTION

AlarisPro’s intelligent data platform provides ArgenTechwith the capability to track and maintain aircraft at the component level. Aside from just maintenance activity tracking, AlarisPro also provides a comprehensive and integrated solution to capture relevant company-wide data that is necessary to ensure the operational capability of every component across every system in ArgenTech’s UAS fleet.

WHY ALARISPRO?

AlarisPro helped ArgenTech identify a critical airworthiness issue affecting a main drive belt, a major component on anaircraft in their fleet. AlarisPro identified the issue by analyzing the de-identified data from other operators who were flying the same aircraft model and experiencing the belt failure which, in some cases, resulted in aircraft and payload loss (typically LiDAR). As a result, AlarisPro had insights about this issue before other industry stakeholders, which allowed them to alert users of this particular model aircraft to potential issues thus preventing additional loss. The insights from AlarisPro’s crowdsourced data were what first drew ArgenTech to AlarisPro.

AlarisPro is the only comprehensive fleet management Saas platform available on the market. The combination of real-time data and component-level tracking simplifies UAS maintenance operations and increases program reliability.

ALARISPRO BENEFITS

Comprehensive Fleet Management Platform

AlarisPro compiles all program data into one easy-to-useportal, which quickly and accurately keeps track of all company aircraft, pilots, and missions.

Program Credibility

Utilizing AlarisPro to diligently track operations and maintenance signals to regulators that a UAS program is compliant, professional, and has a focus on safety and documentation – all key factors when presenting a safety case for expanded operations, D&R documentation for Type Certification or compliance with Part 135 maintenancere cordkeeping requirements.

Operational Assurance

The implementation of manned aviation practices to unmanned aircraft further displays a commitment to safetyand reliability and ensures safe flight. Additionally, many contracts require verification that a contractor is maintaining this level of detail in documenting their operations.

Maintenance Documentation

Through AlarisPro, organizations can document and track components and preventative maintenance on their aircraft. Since flight logs are integrated with maintenance, organizations can see what’s coming due when and document those changes within the software.

Crew Tracking

Easily track pilot requirements including currency, certification and training to ensure crew readiness. Additional reports show pilot hours per month, instructor pilot time and simulator time.

Favorable Insurance Rates

Insurance costs are favorably impacted due to the ability to prove well-maintained and documented systems are being operated by qualified crews.
