In 2014, International Air Travel Association (IATA) estimated that civil aviation alone had ferried around 3 billion passengers, accounting for roughly 40% of the world population, through 100,000 flights daily world-wide, employing 58 million people and accounting for US $ 2.4 trillion in economic activity -figures that endorse the robust nature of the industry. However, the recent spate of accidents involving the disappearance, shooting down and deliberate crashing of passenger aircrafts have been a rude awakening for airlines, governments and manufacturers alike forcing them to revisit the safety standards and systems on-board as well as off-board the crafts in addition to the operational efficiency aspect.
NeST Aerospace has been in the area of avionics for the last two decades and is a pioneer in Flight Data Analysis and Aircraft Performance and Operational efficiency enhancement solutions. We offer Flight Data Analysis and aircraft sensor calibration services for scheduled as well as non-scheduled operators in the Asia Pacific region. We also offer customized software development and product development services for the worldwide aerospace industry.
Our Airline operational efficiency improvement software which is integrated with the engine trend monitoring (ECM) solutions like SAGE and Aircraft performance monitoring (APM) solutions from Airbus & Boeing, provide data analytics to identify ways to improve efficiency, reduce operating costs and increase aircraft utilization from the FDR dump. Our fuel efficiency improvement solution remain to be one of the major cost saving options for major Air lines like Jet Airways in Asia Pacific region.
Our Flight Data Monitoring solution for flight test instrumentation is used by major Helicopter and Aircraft design houses in India to analyze the Flight Test data received at the telemetry ground stations and to compare the fleet performance with that of the aircraft subsystem design.
NeST Aerospace operates through the three software development centers and works closely with the R&D and manufacturing facilities of sister company, SFO Technologies located at major cities in South India, besides through front-end offices in most continents. The Aerospace team is also backed by the international quality standard – AS9100- that SFO Technologies enjoys, in addition to the coveted credentials of NeST IT.
All stake-holders in the aviation eco-system – from flying airplanes to the bustling airports, air traffic control, engine and frame manufacturers and even IATA churns out huge quantities of data. Safety, economy and efficiency of operations depend on the insights which only effective data analytics can provide.
With our comprehensive experience, unique blend of offerings and expertise, NeST Aerospace team is geared to service all components in the aviation value-chain, including system developers, manufacturers, scheduled and non-scheduled operators and travel industry.
For close to two decades, our Aerospace team has been developing products and solutions that address various needs of airline operators, relating to economy, safety and regulatory compliance. We are approved by DGCA for conducting flight data analysis as per their norms. From providing proven FDM / FOQA software services and software & flight safety solutions for the Aerospace industry, we help our customers sustain competitive advantage, drive long-term ROI, stay customer-oriented and deliver innovative, quality products within time and budget, while reducing product development costs and IT overheads.

FliSAFE-is a Safety Management FDM/FOQA Tool that helps airlines to identify, classify and manage risks for the safety of flight operations and provides you with a framework to build a sound business.supports a wide range of data recording devices, including tape and solid state FDRs, HHDLUs, QARs, DARs, PC cards from DMUs and wireless data lnks in different formats (bin, fld, dat, fdr, dlu, raw etc).Features include parameter/Exceedance/warnings configuration, color graphical traces with on-screen scaling, engineering unit lists, raw data views, graphical/readout reports, data quality reporting, support for printing and exporting, creation of parameter display groups for quick report creation, trend reports etc. FliSAFE is used by airlines that wish to carry out an FDM, FDA, or FOQA Program that follows the rules, regulations and/or guide-lines set out by ICAO (Amendment 26 to Annex 6 – Operation of Aircraft, Part 1), and the FAA (FAR Part 13, Subpart I, Sec. 13.401; 14 CFR Part).
Flight Quality Studio is used to improve Airline operational/Maintenance efficiency & reduce operational/Maintenance cost .Key features are
FliGIS is an aviation solution adept at analyzing and extracting the enroute parameters like maximum terrain height between specified way point segments, the oxygen level profile at a particular terrain height, which in turn facilitates the complete automation of the flight path generation practice done by the airliners. This product secured an award in ESRI India user conference 2008.
