NEW DELHI: India’s fifth largest software services firm Tech Mahindra has bagged a contract from Bombardier to develop an aircraft ground support system (AGSS).

Under the agreement, Tech Mahindra will develop the AGSS for Bombardier’s Aircraft Health Management System (AHMS) for the C Series family of aircraft, a statement said.

The financial details were not disclosed.

AGSS will facilitate real-time and post-flight recorded data management, fault notification and diagnostic reporting.

By leveraging the large amount of data recorded and transmitted from C Series aircraft, the AHMS will allow operators to make sound decisions on aircraft performance and maintenance.

“We are excited to be working with Bombardier and contributing to the AHMS for the C Series aircraft. Our digital tools will support efficient analysis of the data, so that it can be quickly captured and shared with operators,” Tech Mahindra’s head of North America, Lakshmanan Chidambaram said.

Rob Dewar, vice-president (C Series Program) at Bombardier Commercial Aircraft said the AHMS will help operators manage their activities, resulting in superior dispatch reliability.

The AHMS, which comprises on-board and ground system components, collects broad stream aircraft operation and performance data from every system during flight.

By focussing on the 100- to 150-seat market segment, Bombardier has designed the C Series aircraft to deliver economic advantage to operators. It has booked orders and commitments for 603 C Series aircraft, which include firm orders for 243.
