Eagle Cap Software Triples Headcount in 2017, Adds Two Airline Clients

The Flight Operations Development Studio takes off in 2017
Eagle Cap completed their third full year of operations tripling headcount to 32 teammates. They also added two airline clients including Allegiant Airlines, completed projects for AOPA and a UAV GCS system, and signed partnerships with M&E software provider Rusada and the GE Predix platform. In the past three years, Eagle Cap has served seven clients establishing itself as The Flight Operations Development Studio for the aviation industry.

Our Clients
Eagle Cap started 2017 working on a new project with Allegiant Airlines designing a system to manage the operational control center. Eagle Cap was then awarded the system development contract and is working to get the system deployed for the 2018 summer travel rush. Eagle Cap also completed a project for a major US airline where they were asked to design and build a route differences analysis tool for the dispatch operations team.

Eagle Cap continued to develop a next-generation business aviation flight operations system for a well-known company in the space. They also completed two other projects in 2018 stating with a fuel stop planner for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association’s (AOPA) Internet Flight Planner. Eagle Cap also integrated weather services into the ground control station for a major supplier of UAS systems. The year finished strong signing a contract to provide subject matter expert services to a flight operations service company.

New Products
In 2017 Eagle Cap continued to invest profits back into the company (a.k.a. IRAD) and is building cool new products for the aviation industry. The company planned to have Aviation Charting Service (ACS) launched in 2017, but due to a change in mapping engine for the mobile version, experienced a delay. ACS allows application developers, wanting to add an aeronautical chart display—based on ARINC 424 data—to any map. The year was a success with a launch customer committing to integrate ACS into their app. Eagle Cap has been working closely with them to refine ACS, and their requirements have led to the development of another product, Data Download Service (DDS). DDS allows an organization to manage, deliver, and update any type of data or files to a mobile application. ACS and DDS will both be deployed by the beginning of this summer.

Partnerships with Rusada and GE

Eagle Cap established two partnerships in 2017 to develop a new practice area in the growing Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul market. The first is as a Rusada Envision nGen integration partner. Envision nGen is an aviation Maintenance & Engineering technology platform. In the Americas, Eagle Cap is their go-to source for integration and custom software development services when an operator needs a system implemented. Our second is with GE as a Digital Alliance Program partner focused on Predix, the platform for the Industrial Internet of Things. As a Digital Alliance Partner, Eagle Cap can build and customize applications to maximize the data analytics and operations optimization of the platform.
