  • Publication number: 20210295710
    Abstract: Systems and methods to identify a query parameter in an incoming flight voice or data communication to respond to a request. A processing system configured to: in response to receipt of a clearance message, decode the clearance message to determine whether the clearance message contains a command instruction or clearance data for a flight, and to present the command instruction to a pilot as notice to execute the command instruction or if available, obtain at least one query parameter from the clearance data to configure in a query operation to present in response to a pilot question about the command instruction. In response to receipt of the voice or data communication, determine further an intent within the voice or data communication of a question or instruction voiced by applying an acoustic model for tagging identified parts about the question or instruction voiced with query parameters in response to the pilot.

  • Patent number: 10902732
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for monitoring execution of air traffic control (ATC) conditional clearances for a user aircraft. The method monitors ATC clearances transmitted to all other aircraft across each communication channel from an airport. Every other aircraft is identified and the relevant data each ATC clearance is transcribed. A dependency table is generated for the user aircraft with the relevant data from every other aircraft. The dependency table identifies each relevant clearance that must be completed by all other aircraft before the user aircraft executes a conditional ATC clearance. The status of all relevant dependent ATC clearances is monitored and the user aircraft is informed of its conditional ATC clearance upon completion of the relevant dependent ATC clearances.

  • Publication number: 20200175628
    Abstract: Systems and methods for weather impact prediction are provided. The system receives current weather information and identifies a region along an intended flight path with a weather pattern of moderate or low severity. The system uses the identified region and aircraft identification to search a source of historical weather incidents to find a weather incident entry match, defined as a co-occurrence of a matching aircraft type, matching weather pattern, and matching severity rating. The match is evaluated for (i) structural damage, (ii) performance degradation, (iii) exterior damage, and (iv) inspection requirements, and a predicted weather impact report is generated for the identified region, the predicted weather impact report includes one or more of (i) structural damage, (ii) performance degradation, (iii) exterior damage, and (iv) inspection requirements. The system displays the predicted weather impact report.
