DALLAS—WiN MS, a French start-up business specializing in fault-detection technology, has announced an order from Delta TechOps at MRO Americas.
The company’s wire network-monitoring solution helps maintenance teams locate faults in an aircraft’s wiring harness during maintenance overhauls. According to WiN MS, this tool cuts service time by increasing the productivity of electrical maintenance teams.
Delta TechOps ordered 10 of WiN MS’s AERO Smart-R kits to support its main MRO facilities worldwide. One kit consists of one sensor and tablet that runs WIN-MS proprietary Digital-R post-treatment software, which detects and locates transient faults without dismantling components. Electromagnetic waves move through the cable and faults are reflected back as echoes, which are measured in time to determine location.
“We also look forward to working closely with Delta TechOps as we continue adding features and innovations to our solutions,” Arnaud Peltier, WiN MS CEO said.
WiN-MS expects to sign with three to four major MROs in America and Canada within the next six months. Currently, Lufthansa, Swiss International Air Lines, Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways own AERO Smart-R kits. Singapore Airlines recently signed with WiN-MS as well. The French Tech Hub brokered the deal with Delta TechOps.
The technology was developed by CEA LIST, a public research institute near Paris that specializes in digital systems design.
