Lets OEMs and Airline Operators Meet Technical Information Requirements for Airbus A350, Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and Bombardier CSeries

IRVINE, Calif., July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — InfoTrust Group ( takes another step in its mission to provide independent, technical information management solutions for airline operators and aerospace OEMs with the latest release of its TechSight/X suite of products. This release supports requirements for new-generation aircraft programs, including the Airbus A350, Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, and Bombardier’s CSeries, that require technical information in the S1000D information exchange standard.

With this release of the TechSight/X suite, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can manage technical information for existing aircraft programs and meet airframe manufacturers’ requirements for the A350, Boeing 787, and Bombardier CSeries using a single system. Airline operators also can use the TechSight/X suite of products to manage technical information for their existing fleets as well as for orders of new-generation aircraft without having to deploy a separate system.

As Airbus, Boeing, and Bombardier introduce new-generation aircraft, they are requiring their supply chain partners and airline customers to support the S1000D information exchange standard. Using S1000D allows for the creation, sharing, and use of more accurate technical information required for the safe and efficient operation and maintenance of commercial aircraft.

As the ramp up in production of new-generation aircraft accelerates, OEMs and operators must be able to support both new and legacy program specifications for existing aircraft that have been in use for decades in parallel. 

“With the introduction of new-gen aircraft and the adoption of S1000D, the entire civil aviation ecosystem is facing the greatest challenge in the day-to-day management of technical information since the adoption of SGML and XML more than two decades ago,” said JD Sillion, vice president of products and solutions at InfoTrust Group. “By specializing in technical information standards and technology, we aim to help keep OEMs on track in the manufacturing process for all of the programs they support and reduce the pressures of technical information management airlines face in order to operate safe and timely flights every day.”

InfoTrust Group is an active member in the ATA e-Business Steering Group and participates in both the Civil Aviation Working Group and the S1000D Steering Committee, representing aerospace companies and helping to ensure that the specification evolves in ways that are responsive to industry needs.
