SAO JOSE DOS CAMPOS, Brazil - Brazilian helicopter operator Ocean Explorer sought digital maintenance coordination technology. They found their solution from Embraer in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil.

Ocean Explorer selected Embraer's Beacon platform, which helps to coordinate aviation maintenance operations to reduce downtime, bring contextual communication between its maintenance teams and external partners, simplify flows and improve maintenance operations.

Beacon enables crews to see real-time updates and save and access maintenance records. Machine learning capabilities help identify maintenance patterns for optimization and provide insights. Through a digital web and mobile application (IOS and Android), Embraer's Beacon technology triggers a network of accredited providers, fostering real-time collaboration during unplanned maintenance activities, accelerating the return to service of aircraft.

With the signing of the contract, Ocean Explorer becomes the first helicopter operator to utilize Beacon for maintenance activates, Embraer says.

“We are excited to onboard the first helicopter operator into the Beacon digital platform. We designed Beacon to keep all kinds of aircraft flying - and that counts also for even helicopters. Wherever there is room to facilitate interactions among different maintenance players, to leverage contextual communication around maintenance events, and to make the maintenance workflows easier, there is space for Beacon,” said Marco Cesarino, Head of Beacon.

“Beacon is the ideal solution for Ocean as we seek for a smarter and digital maintenance operation. With Beacon, our team can communicate with maintenance centers, engine maintenance representatives, and other external partners in real time without the trouble of searching for information on emails and phone calls. We need to make sure the helicopter is always available, so keeping information safe and accessible to everyone involved is critical”, said Daniel Braz, General Manager at Ocean Explorer do Brasil.
