NBAA: SmartSky adds AvMet to Skytelligence platform


SmartSky Networks has added AvMet Applications, a leading collaborator with the FAA’s NextGen Aviation Weather Division, to its Skytelligence platform.

The move will see AvMet offer its weather data and analysis to the aviation community. Developers and operators, both business and commercial, can now have selective, data driven access to hi-resolution historical weather event forecasts.

“Data-driven decision making is the future of aviation operations,” says AvMet Applications president, Mark Klopfenstein, “SmartSky’s Skytelligence provides an ideal platform for AvMet to bring our weather impact data solutions to the aviation community.”

AvMet’s data services are now available for access on Skytelligence where they can be merged with other operational data through a common storefront.

Ryan Stone, president, SmartSky Networks, says: “Data is at the heart of everything we do at SmartSky and integrating providers like AvMet into Skytelligence is essential to ensuring we provide our users with access to data at the right place and the right time so they can make real-time decisions as easily at 35,000 feet as they would on the ground.”
