Synaptic Aviation Deploys AI Technology for Ground Operations

Synaptic Aviation has partnered with Unifi to launch an artificial intelligence (AI) technology that provides enhanced visibility into airport ground operations.

Synaptic Aviation’s AI platform aims to improve the safety, efficiency and compliance of ground operations. The technology produces smart, usable data that tracks activity and creates a real-time log of events, thus combatting the restrictions of manually gathering data. This new data will give ground handling teams more control of turnaround activities and allow them to prevent avoidable service failures.

Juan M. Gómez, CEO, Synaptic Aviation, said:

“At Synaptic Aviation we are passionate about pushing the limits of AI to solve common operational challenges that ground service providers, airlines, and airports face every day. Our solution is pioneering and delivers results within weeks.”

The platform provides key information such as average turn time, gate utilisation, mandatory foreign object damage prevention walks, ground power unit connection times, and jet bridge status updates. In addition to these operational metrics, Synaptic Aviation also provides key compliance reports to help Unifi maintain safety measures around the aircraft.

Brian Bartal, SVP of Safety for Unifi said:

“At Unifi, we’re always looking for ways to improve operations and safety for both our customers and employees. Synaptic Aviation provides an innovative way to further reduce human error. The partnership focuses on improving training, follow up, compliance and meeting airline designated standards for connections and first bag out.”

AI and computer vision have the capability to overcome operational challenges, reduce avoidable delays, reduce CO2 emissions and lower operational costs.

Synaptic Aviation plans to continue to develop and deploy AI-powered products to optimise operations for airports, air cargo and ground handling services.

Gómez said:

“The aviation industry will never be the same. AI enables a type of visibility that gives our customers every piece of information they need to change the behaviours that cause service disruptions and unsafe working conditions. The result is a safe, reliable operation, a seamless customer experience, and an increase in customer loyalty.”
