Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring

Helicopter FDM with Exceedance Alerting

Flight data recording and exceedance monitoring to support your FOQA program

Helicopter FDM (HFDM) by GPMS Foresight

Capture Exceedances to Ensure Safe Operations

Foresight automatically documents exceedances throughout the mission including the Date/time, Exceedance Name, Description, and Duration of the event. Foresight illustrates the length of depth of the alerted exceedance, providing ops teams and pilots with flight training data and maintenance teams with information needed for OEM conversations.

 

HFDM with exceedance monitoring and alerting

Capture Flight Parameters for Analysis and Replay

From Foresight’s fleet or aircraft view, users can easily click into FDM information. Foresight tracks the present mission and allows the operator to select completed mission and/or a precise point in time to review up to 33 different parameters including but not limited to: GPS, Heading, Pitch Rate, Barometric Pressure, Torque, Roll, and Yaw Rate.  Users can also download the full mission dataset (60+) and upload it into Xplane or comparable systems for 3D visualizations and replay.

 

Optimize Maintenance

Combine FDM and HUMS for more benefit

Standalone FDMs, including camera-based systems, provide FOQA compliance but miss vitally important and related engine and component health data. By combining FDM and mechanical diagnostics in one Health and Usage Monitoring System, operators get comprehensive capability without stacking single system cost, adding weight, and sacrificing interoperability.
