Project overview

In the era of all-consuming digitalization, some extremely responsible tasks are efficiently handled by specialized software solutions. In modern planes, systems and devices are seamlessly monitored and managed by a centralized software platform. Even the black box must be integrated with a stable connected solution that would reliably gather, store, process, and immediately transmit the onboard-state information in the case of an emergency. And this is exactly the kind of solution we had the pleasure to work on for Naya.

Business challenge

A plane’s black box is a critically-important source of emergency information used to investigate flight crashes, failures, in-air accidents, and other emergencies. The versatility, performance, and reliability of the black box software is the backbone of a successful investigation. Modern devices need advanced data collection and processing powers to keep everything in check. That’s why such projects are of the utmost importance both to us and our clients.

Technical challenges

In a nutshell, we had to walk our client’s team through the specifics and properties of Spark Streaming and Kafka, which should work jointly in the client’s black box data processing solution. The black box records all sorts of plane functionality and state events and transfers them to the Kafka-powered data processing engine. Spark Streaming then collects all the events from the Kafka engine in micro-batches. The main challenge was to optimize the software to gather and process more than 300 types of events. Each event requires adapted business logic to process all the data (enrich, calculate, analyze, group data assets).

Solution delivered

The final solution that we helped build and optimize is a Spark Streaming software engine that works jointly with Kafka to efficiently process the black box data. The solution is a real powerhouse that collects and records events to subsequently extract all the detailed info from them in segments. Say, upon receiving the “speed” event, the software converts all the info into structured plane speed properties, such as its constant speed, accelerations, and braking with precise time indication. All this valuable information is then rapidly transferred to the processing engine that further structure and organizes all the received data assets.
