“Our FADEC repair services help airlines reduce maintenance costs and extend the life of their aircraft,” said Dr. Ehtisham Siddiqui, vice president and general manager of Commercial Aircraft Solutions at BAE Systems. “By expanding our worldwide service network into Singapore, we’re bringing better maintenance closer to our Asian customers.”

SEA’s repair capabilities will help maximize aircraft availability for FADEC International’s customers. The newly authorized SEA FADEC Repair Center will provide Level 2 FADEC maintenance for the FADEC International products on the CFM56-7B, CFM56-5C, CFM56-5B, GE90-115, CF6-80E engines (and GEnx-1B, GEnx-2B from 2015). In addition to the new FADEC Repair Center, BAE Systems also has a full maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility in Singapore to complement its aftermarket service offerings in the region.

“Providing avionics repair maintenance services for more than a decade in the Asia-Pacific region, Safran Electronics Asia, a subsidiary of Sagem, will now bring to all the Asian operators its long-term experience and quality of services on their FADEC equipment,” says Jean-Paul Alary, general manager of the Safran Electronics Division at Sagem.

The FADEC solution is a redundant computer system that reduces pilot workload and increases efficiencies by electronically monitoring and adjusting aircraft engines for proper and smooth operation. Rather than a pilot manually adjusting throttles and controls, the FADEC controls all aspects of engine performance, such as fuel flow, variable engine geometries, and overspeed protection, as well as interfacing with the engine thrust reverser.

Through FADEC International, BAE Systems and Sagem (Safran group), develop, manufacture, and support high-reliability aircraft electronics for harsh engine environments. The company serves airlines and aircraft maintenance and repair providers with a full range of aftermarket capabilities. Leveraging extensive knowledge of severe engine environments, FADEC design attributes, and repair history, FADEC International has developed a robust process that helps customers decrease costs, simplify maintenance, and enhance their services.

FADEC International is a 50-50 joint venture between a subsidiary of BAE Systems Controls Inc. and Sagem (Safran group), that focuses the two companies’ capabilities to design, produce, and support Full-Authority Digital Electronic Controls for commercial aircraft engines. For more than 25 years, FADEC International and its member companies have served airlines and aircraft maintenance and repair providers with a full range of design and aftermarket capabilities.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
