Top Tech Trends in Aviation Industry in 2024 and Beyond

First off, if you’re wondering why you haven’t heard much from me before, it’s because I’m not your typical social media aficionado. But in this article I will be breaking my silence to dive into a topic that lights a fire in me – the dynamic, ever-evolving world of aviation.

Currently donning the hat of an Associate Product Manager at SatSure, I’m all about connecting dots in business development, weaving relationships with potential leads, and steering the ship when it comes to pioneering aviation solutions.

My focus? Well, it’s split between aeronautical data management and crafting the future of flight procedure design.

Picture this: my daily routine involves juggling between our tech and data science teams, ensuring our products aren’t just groundbreaking but are also market-ready.

For me, tech evolution isn’t just a box to check; it’s the key to transforming the aviation sector by swapping out those tired, old processes with cutting-edge, data-driven solutions.

“The global AI and other technologies alike in the Aviation market is to surpass USD 9,985.86 million by 2030, marking a jaw-dropping 20% CAGR from 2023 to 2032.”

The aviation industry stands on the precipice of transformative technological advancements, with AI emerging as a beacon of innovations. At the helm of this groundbreaking shift are cutting-edge technologies such as IoTs, robotics, and AI/ML, with the aviation sector leading to unparalleled growth and innovation.

Today I am going to share the top technology trends that are shaping the aviation industry in 2024. Stick around, it’s going to be quite an exciting flight!

1. Flight Operations – Fleet Management

In 2024, IATA predicts a resurgence in passenger traffic quite similar to 2019 levels.

Yet, irregular flight schedules pose challenges requiring innovative solutions. AI-powered operations forecasting utilizes global weather data, historical flight operations data, and social listening data to predict and prevent delays due to weather, thus boosting customer satisfaction and reducing costs.

Additionally, adapting to the new normal in business travel demands strategic investments. Real-time data and analytics capabilities are crucial for airlines to navigate unpredictable demand, focusing on leisure travel and implementing new revenue streams.

2. Aircraft Maintenance and Repair

The second trend revolves around the evolution of aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO), where data analytics and predictive maintenance take center stage. Harnessing data from sensors, flight data recorders, and real-time monitoring systems, AI and machine learning enable proactive decision-making, optimizing maintenance schedules, and ensuring aircraft reliability.

AI algorithms and ML revolutionize anomaly detection, fault diagnosis, and the development of efficient MRO processes, extending the lifespan of aircraft and minimizing downtime.

3. Air Traffic Management

The air traffic management market, valued at $8.8 billion in 2021, is projected to ascend to $17.7 billion by 2031, boasting a commendable 7.5% CAGR from 2022 to 2031.

The role of Air Traffic Management in aircraft operations forms the linchpin for a seamlessly integrated and safe aviation ecosystem. Automation, AI, machine learning, and blockchain-based solutions are at the forefront, driving efficiency, accessibility, and resilience at reduced costs. SESAR, a pioneer in this transformation, is deploying satellite-based navigation technologies and digital towers, contributing to reduced CO2 emissions and a more automated and resilient air travel system.

4.  Digitalization of  Data Management of Aerodromes

An Aerodrome Mapping Database (AMDB) is a comprehensive Geographic Information System (GIS) database specifically designed to depict the spatial layout of an airport.

It intricately captures the geometry of airport features such as runways, taxiways, and buildings)and  additional attribute information detailing features and their functions, such as surface type, name/object identifier, and runway slope. The primary objectives of AMDB applications are to enhance user situational awareness and complement surface navigation, thereby strengthening the safety margins and operational efficiency. AMDBs cater to diverse user groups in aviation, including pilots, air traffic controllers, aerodrome managers, and emergency/security personnel, providing invaluable support to various aspects of airport operations.

SatSure’s AMDB redefines spatial Data Management of aerodromes through a versatile range of modular tools. This solution is meticulously crafted to streamline and enhance the user’s data handling processes.

With SatSure Skies’ AMDB, airports are equipped to meet the demands of the modern aviation landscape, through support on ground operations and ATC to Aircraft communications and a host of other end user applications.

By optimizing data management with a host of tools, AMDB paves the way for accurate, reliable, and efficient airport operations.

5. Enhance Safety and Efficiency with advanced e-TOD

Evaluation of Terrain and Obstacle Data (e-TOD) evaluates and analyzes terrain and obstacle data to ensure the safety of flight operations. It plays a crucial role in aviation safety, particularly in planning and designing flight procedures. This involves considering geographical features and obstacles, both vertical and horizontal in the airport vicinity to maintain safe clearances for aircraft. SatSure Skies’ e-TOD module stands at the forefront, offering solutions tailored for handling intricate airport terrain and obstacle datasets. Through our innovative e-TOD platform, airport authorities gain access to the latest technologies, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of their airport’s landscape. This information enables them to make informed decisions, enhancing safety and operational efficiency.

With automation tools equipped to generate OLS surfaces as per ICAO Annex 14, SatSure’s e-TOD solution enables the user to conduct obstacle analysis for any given airport as per the rules and regulations.

SatSure’s AMDB module can be combined with Flight Procedure Design tool and e-TOD module can support a host of use cases such as eCharting and other flight applications.
