SATAVIA focuses on delivering value to our customers by making aviation smarter.

We enable our customers to increase cost base efficiency and drive up profitability through more successful decision-making and risk analysis.

Reduce aerospace maintenance cost

Reducing maintenance cost in aerospace

SATAVIA reduces the maintenance impact of damage to aircraft engine and airframe components caused by ice, dust, corrosive air pollution, sea salt and volcanic ash. Aircraft operators, manufacturers and maintenance repair organisations now increasingly share maintenance liability through ‘power-by-the-hour’ services for the lifetime of the aircraft. Aircraft-on-ground delays can cost upwards of £100 per minute for airline operators and unplanned maintenance costs the aviation industry billions each year.

Product

Airport contaminants

Airport contaminants

Global quantitative intelligence on the prevalence of dust, air pollution, and sea salt, including data on more than 4,000 airports. 

Benefits: 
• Rank airports to understand maintenance risk
• Identify non-benign conditions
• Impact assessment for network strategic planning

Fleet exposure analysis

Fleet exposure analysis

Quantitative aircraft exposure analysis to dust, air pollution, and sea salt, and flight-by-flight reporting for individual aircraft.

Benefits: 
• Identify fleet maintenance risk outliers
• Enhance condition health monitoring
• Enhance predictive maintenance planning

Smarter maintenance

Smarter maintenance

Monitor and predict asset condition, and optimise maintenance processes such as borescope inspection before arrival in the hangar.

Benefits: 
• Earlier detection of damage
• Reduce unnecessary engine removal and other maintenance
• Reduces cases of AOG and increases asset availability

Smarter flight operations

Smarter flight operations

Dynamic tail assignment and flight planning optimisation to mitigate damage caused by environmental contaminants.

Benefits: 
• Spread wear homogeneously across  the fleet and remove outliers
• Increase flight cycles between overhaul
• Increase asset availability

SATAVIA technology

SATAVIA’s patented software platform DecisionX™ combines technology and data from atmospheric modelling, Earth observation, maintenance records and aircraft prognostics sensor data. We specialise in aggregating disparate formats of unstructured and structured data, in both paper and digital form. We can make insights available from many years of data and develop custom software tooling for specific use cases.

How DecisionX Works

SATAVIA offers quantitative intelligence on the global prevalence of atmospheric contaminants like dust, air pollution, sea salt, ice crystals and volcanic ash. We offer products driven by machine-learning to reduce and optimise maintenance costs and increase flight cycles between overhaul which reduces overall cost of ownership. We do this through identifying fleet maintenance risk, mitigating by intelligent scheduling, and optimising inspection and overhaul processes.

About Us

Satavia was founded by Dr. Adam Durant in 2013. Since our setup we have grown to achieve global recognition in the Tällt Ventures Disrupt 100 list in 2017 and we were selected to participate in the 2017 SVC2UK Summit held at Buckingham Palace. In addition, we were a Finalist in Pitch@Palace 6.0; Mass Challenge 2016; and Copernicus Masters 2016. We have also won over £1.5m grant funding since 2015 from Innovate UK, Aerospace Technology Institute, and the European Space Agency.

We’re commited to sustainability

We are committed to ensuring a carbon neutral future. Our High Performance Compute is powered by geothermal energy and temperature controlled by cool Icelandic air, which reduces our power requirements and minimises our carbon footprint.

Our Team

The SATAVIA team is comprised of world leaders in atmospheric science, artificial intelligence and data science.
