Smart4Aviation and DW International announced a partnership agreement encompassing the provision of RAIM/RNP check functionality.

Thanks to data provided by DW International and Smart4Aviation technology the RAIM (Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) check functionality allows a quick and reliable check of RAIM availability. The service allows flight planners, dispatchers and aircrew to plan around periods of reduced GNSS availability by taking all route details from the flight plan and calculating RAIM availability for all route types – oceanic, en-route, terminal, and approach – on a leg-by-leg basis, including destination and alternate airports for RNAV and RNP operations anywhere in the world. Whenever the System detects a GPS outage for any part of the flight planned route flight dispatch and the flight crew is alerted by presenting details of the outage (time, location, and duration).

Dirk-Jan Baas, Managing Director and CEO of Smart4Aviation says "Smart4Aviation is very pleased to be working with DW International in providing RAIM predictions to our customers”.

"This is a great opportunity for DWI and Smart4Aviation to work together to provide a seamless service to the end user. With GRPS integrated into Smart4Aviations flight-planning system, RAIM coverage is predicted automatically as a route is being planned," says John Wilde, CEO of DWI.

The RAIM check functionality can be easily integrated with the Smart4Aviation’s Smart BRIEF, Smart COMM and Smart OPS modules.
