General Electric (GE) opened their Middle East Aviation Technology Center to support customers’ operations by leveraging data analytics, domain experience and software capabilities to increase productivity, maximise performance and minimise down time for customers.
“The Aviation Technology Center provides the environment and expertise to collaborate with our customers to identify challenges while looking at the entire aviation ecosystem. It will support our customers from our engines, to our services, to our software,” said Gary Mercer, vice president of engineering services for GE Aviation.
“The center has evolved to become a state-of-the-art space that will look at thousands of parameters on both aircraft engines and systems in order to provide insights for broad customer operations and drive significant outcomes.”
The center is located at Dubai Airport Free Zone (DAFZA). It will enhance the service level for GE systems and engines, serve as a regional customer and product support hub, and be a place where data scientists, user experience designers and application developers can help the customer use the Predix platform to solve business challenges.
“We’re supporting the success of our customers across the aviation ecosystem by uniting analytics and physics with software solutions built on the Predix platform,” said Jim Daily vice president, systems and digital engineering & technology, GE Aviation. “We see the center as a vibrant facility focused on customer outcomes, where GE and airlines in the region can exchange ideas and collaborate as the world of data grows and changes.”
