Increased Safety with Geospatial Technology
A leading mining company identifies two hidden hazards and how the application of geolocation expertise and software development provided increased company safety.
Pioneer Building Services is a building cleaning company that distinguishes itself for its high quality and excellent customer service. Their regular on-site quality inspections are a critical touch point with their clients and the tenants in the buildings they maintain. Each inspection is a careful walk through of the site which results in a detailed report that is delivered to the client. This process was effective for increasing quality, but expensive because quality inspectors had to manually create PDF reports after each inspection. This meant fewer quality visits and higher cost per visit.
In collaboration with our launch customers, Mosaic Software adapted a complex desktop application developed over years of NASA R&D and experimental use with major air carriers to become a web-based application, allowing us to quickly and easily customize the tool for our clients. Mosaic Situation Viewer has proven to be an invaluable, cost-effective resource to clients including FedEx, Delta, and Hawaiian Airlines, where it is deployed at major hubs.
Package Delivery Airport Hub
Under its aeronautics research mission, NASA began a program to study operations on the airport surface. This R&D effort led to development of concepts and algorithms that would provide an airport-centered view of the airport surface and all flights traveling to or from an airport, as well as data-driven predictions of flight arrivals or departures from an airport. In collaboration with NASA, FAA, the airline industry, and partner firms, Mosaic Software transformed the researchers’ vision into reality by developing and refining the Airport Surface Management System through extensive work with aviation SMEs, prototype evaluations, and live operational trials at airports. This product remains agile and relevant today as it operates 24/7 at two of the world’s most significant and complex logistics hubs.
The Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) system is a complex, expensive, safety-critical computer system that runs in air traffic control facilities in the United States. Mosaic Software quickly and effectively provided a tool that stores data for all United States air traffic and currently supports analysis of TBFM’s performance and training of future air traffic managers at seven Air Route Traffic Control Centers.
