What is Foresight MX & Why Do I Need It?

Foresight is a breakthrough tool for rotorcraft operators. Allowing you to continuously monitor your fleet from anywhere, Foresight’s smart sensors uncover when components are starting to wear and our prognostic algorithms display when maintenance may be required. In addition to mechanical & engine health, our advanced health & usage monitoring system provides FDM for your FOQA program, tracks exceedances, and automatically captures RTB data and provides optimized solutions.
