ATP made its debut at the prestigious Farnborough International Airshow 2016, held in England from July 11th to the 15th. Over the past eighteen months, ATP has achieved a notable string of successes for SpotLight® and ChronicX®, with both state-of-the-art aircraft OEMs and major airlines, making it an excellent time to attend the world’s largest and most visible air show and to engage with the 73,000 trade visits that occur at this biennial event.

ATP attends Farnborough International Airshow 2016

ATP exhibited in the Canadian Pavilion, alongside major Canadian aerospace suppliers in partnership with The Canadian Government and The Ontario Aerospace Council. ATP was well-received by the visiting Canadian Government Officials – Federal Minister of Public Services and Procurement (Judy Foote), Federal Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (Navdeep Bains), and the Ontario Minister of Economic Development & Growth (Brad DuGuid).  On Monday July 11th, ATP was represented at the prestigious Canada House Reception and Dinner in Trafalgar Square, London, hosted by the Canadian Ambassador to the UK, and attended by over 500 members of the international aerospace community.

ATP Unveils Advanced Troubleshooting System

ATP announced at Farnborough an advanced troubleshooting system for the innovative Pratt & Whitney Canada PurePower® PW800 turbine engine series that incorporates a host of new ATP technologies.

The SpotLight application for the PurePower PW814GA/PW815GA Engines will be paired with the SpotLight application for the Gulfstream G500 and G600, producing the world’s first federated troubleshooting system that allows diagnostic information to flow between aircraft OEM and engine OEM diagnostic databases to quickly and accurately determine the cause of faults.

Showing Continued Support To Customers and Partners

ATP’s primary mission at Farnborough was to support our customers and partners as they made announcements and demonstrations of their best-in-class aerospace products, which rely on our interactive troubleshooting and recurring defect tracking solutions.

ATP supported Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lighting II international debut, incorporating Pratt & Whitney F-135 engines and the Rolls-Royce LIFT system, which was highlighted by flying displays of both F-35A and F-35B variants at the airshow. ATP supplies key software for the F-35 Anomaly and Failure Resolution System (AFRS), embedded in every portable maintenance aid and squadron diagnostic system shipped with the aircraft by Lockheed Martin.


ATP’s participation in the Bombardier C Series was also noteworthy, with the aircraft’s presence at the show all week leading up to the inaugural revenue flight for the SWISS CS-100 occurring on Friday, July 15th.  Interestingly, just prior to roll-back of the first revenue flight, ATP’s SpotLight Diagnostic Solution helped resolve a minor problem that ensured a timely departure and smooth first flight.

ATP also supported Gulfstream at Farnborough as the provider of guided diagnostics for MyCMP, the primary troubleshooting tool for the G-550, G-650 and the new G-500/G-600 luxury executive jets. During the show Qatar Airlines announced an order for several G-650ER aircraft for a new super-luxury class product.

Within the official Farnborough Airshow Catalogue, ATP was featured in an editorial for the MRO section titled, Meeting the Challenge of Troubleshooting Complex Aircraft Systems and written by one of ATP’s founders, Phil D’Eon. In the article, Phil explains how an advanced troubleshooting solution improves safety, uptime and cost for airlines and manufacturers – all critical challenges for meeting aircraft reliability goals.


A Successful Conclusion At Farnborough 2016

At the ATP booth, within the Canadian Pavilion, both SpotLight and ChronicX were featured and both attracted international interest. Government representatives from China, India, Belgium, France, Mexico and the U.K. were among the many visitors to ATP’s booth, exploring how our technologies could help keep their fleets operations, while also overcoming the growing challenge of retaining field expertise and defeating grey out in their countries.
