To Enhance Data Connectivity And Reduce Costs, Lufthansa Technik Selects UTC Aerospace Systems Aircraft Interface Device Solution

- Following a wide-ranging assessment, UTC Aerospace Systems AID was selected as the preferred platform due to its data processing performance, advanced network security features, ability to host embedded applications and reliability.
- Lufthansa German Airlines has ordered the AID for their fleet of A320 series aircraft, with options for the rest of their fleet.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After an extensive, industry-wide evaluation of Aircraft Interface Device (AID) options, Lufthansa Technik has selected the latest generation AID from UTC Aerospace Systems to enable a wide range of cost-saving solutions for its customers.

Lufthansa Technik launched a review of AID solutions from leading suppliers on behalf of Lufthansa for a more connected aircraft and the associated value-creating solutions. The study evaluated AID products from suppliers across multiple criteria, including cost, range of input/output, processing power, storage capacity and upgradeability. Luftansa Technik completed testing in its own facility to ensure the competition was based on unbiased data.

Following the wide-ranging assessment, the UTC Aerospace Systems AID was selected as the preferred platform due to its data processing performance, advanced network security features, ability to host embedded applications and reliability. Lufthansa Technik received EASA certification for the AID system on the Airbus A320 family and is already preparing follow-on certifications on various commercial aircraft types for customers beyond the Lufthansa Group. Lufthansa German Airlines has ordered the AID for their fleet of A320 series aircraft, with options for the rest of their fleet.  AID development and production work is being performed by UTC Aerospace Systems' Sensors and Integrated Systems business in Burnsville, Minnesota.

"For Lufthansa Technik's customers, the latest AID will provide enhanced functionality, improved safety, stronger cybersecurity and greater in-flight data connectivity, while simultaneously reducing costs," said Mark Skarohlid, Vice President of Business Development for UTC Aerospace Systems. "At UTC Aerospace Systems, we're committed to providing our customers with the cutting-edge technology they need to improve performance and drive down cost, and we look forward to continuing to partner with Lufthansa moving forward."
