S-PLANE assists clients with architecture definitions for aircraft systems. This is part of the typical engagement with clients to apply S-PLANE’s X-KIT to clients’ needs. S-PLANE’s involvement serves to balance development risk, cost and time for clients, by providing key technical, project and safety assessment inputs, while simultaneously supporting and guiding the application of standards-based system engineering practices appropriate to the development. The result is a well-defined system architecture complete with planning documents, system requirements, system safety assessment data, conceptual design data and a project plan.
S-PLANE is experienced at supplying aviation services to customers that use our products. Clients often require guidance to determine whether specific aviation products will serve their medium or long term needs for activities such as maritime surveillance and border patrol. S‑PLANE assists clients by analysing their needs and suggesting system and sub-system configurations that match integration with the S-PLANE X-KIT. The X-KIT and other sub-systems are integrated into suitable aircraft and ground control stations, which are in turn integrated into larger networked systems.
S-PLANE clients that use our Products may need us to customise our electronic hardware and software subsystems. S-PLANE is able to offer flexible arrangements for this business model through application of its mature and modular product base at the desired level of abstraction for capability development, while simultaneously managing project execution risk. We combine partner expertise and requirements, our product and technology base, and our development expertise in order to meet our clients’ requirements and serve our targeted markets.
At S-PLANE we understand that our clients often need to be self-sufficient when it comes to key strategic capabilities within their organisations. S-PLANE provides a number of training modules to our clients that perform their own system-level developments. S-PLANE also provides integration, operation and maintenance training courses as part of the supply of its various subsystems to clients, to ensure that our clients are self-sufficient when it comes to using and maintaining the equipment S-PLANE supplies within the context of larger valuable systems.
S-PLANE qualifies its products and performs environmental stress screening in collaboration with its partner network. Environmental tests are conducted in accordance with appropriate standards and are tailored to meet client requirements. S-PLANE is also able to advise clients on the most appropriate tests and test methods for a particular subsystem, given the subsystem’s application, operational environment and criticality.
