CROSSMOS went live on SWISS

January 29, 2016

On January 28th, 2016 CROSSMOS went live on a BOEING 777 of SWISS International Air Lines on its flight from Seattle to Zurich. The introduction of CROSSMOS (ELB) with the first flight of SWISS International Air Lines B777 is another step forward into the paperless future. The new ELB at SWISS consists of two Microsoft Surface 3 tablets – the cockpit and cabin devices, plus a small Swisscom Router which enables device interconnectivity via a WLAN and connectivity via a GSM to a Maintenance Server.

“With the use of an ELB we are promised substantial improvements in quality and efficiency. Through the digitalisation of the data we secure the transfer of error free readings on the current overall real time status of the aircraft including all maintenance and crew activity.“, says Marcus di Laurenzio, project manager of the SWISS Electronic Log Book project.

With this data SWISS improves the awareness of all those involved in the technical condition of the aircraft. In particular, the cockpit and cabin crew will be completely exempt from the paper processes. An improved and faster communication between cabin and cockpit devices will simplify the overview and status of aircraft and ensure a generally better overview.

For the Maintenance team the processes are simplified, in that log entries are digitized and must no longer be input by hand. The on line connection allows a fast bi-directional flow of information between Flight Crew and Maintenance.

“Swiss International Air Lines have decided to work together with CrossConsense, as it was decided that only a bottom up development of an ELB could accommodate all the requirements of SWISS. At the time of the start of the project no such solution was available for evaluation in the market.“, says Peter Wojahn, Chief Technical Officer at SWISS International Air Lines.

"The combination of SWISS International Air Lines, SWISS AviationSoftware and a couple of other airline customers was ideal for us to develop a standard and easy-to-use system.“, states Udo Stapf, CEO of CrossConsense.
