Aeronautical Data Systems | ADS Oxygen Management Solutions

Since early aviation, oxygen quantity has been expressed in PSI, kpa, bar and sometimes liters – all of which only describe how full or empty the cylinder is – not how much time the oxygen will last. ADS’ patented solutions provide pilots with a key, meaningful metric: time remaining. Utilizing ADS’ time-based based solutions, operators can standardize and simplify the complex balance between fuel and oxygen resources -- simultaneously saving money while increasing operational safety.

Save Money and Improve Safety with Standardized Oxygen/Fuel Management

Lean, efficient operations -- that's what today's economic climate requires. Cut costs, but don't trim an ounce of safety. ADS does exactly that, with a suite of time-based oxygen management solutions:

Oxygen SMS
• ADS offers a comprehensive Safety Management System comprised of online programming, an e-book, training modules and a customizable template that safely manages oxygen system hazards and addresses the range of SMS requirements defined by AC120-92A. It includes:
• O2 TimerTM: This innovative online oxygen planning tool displays oxygen time remaining for these common oxygen use scenarios: Duration, Regulatory, Fire, Medical and Duration less Regulatory. The pilot simply selects the specific aircraft, and enters the altitude, oxygen psi, and number of crew and passengers. Time remaining in the selected scenario will display and “count down” in hours, minutes and seconds.
SMS Handbook: This e-book includes regulations, checklists and aircraft-specific duration charts for fuel and oxygen flight planning, in-flight oxygen management, aircraft decompression, partial cabin pressurization, smoke and fire procedures and medical oxygen management.

Additional SMS Resources:
• E-learning training modules
• ADS Toolbox of cost saving programs
• Library of oxygen safety resources
• Customized SMS template addressing  AC120-92A requirements


e-OPSTMTM Oxygen Planning:
• Utilizing time-based metrics, e-OPS provides pilots with an accurate dispatch oxygen pressure via an easy-to-use online calculation service, eliminating the need to carry extra fuel for flight below 10,000 feet. The service includes aircraft oxygen system analysis, 50 flight plans annually and year-to-date savings resulting from the reduced fuel consumption. The O2 Timer also operates within the e-OPS program.


Ergo 360TM Mapping : 
• One of the critical flight planning components is ensuring oxygen safety in normal operations, as well as managing the risk associated with an oxygen contingency. Since fuel and oxygen have inverse consumption rates, flight at higher altitudes decreases fuel consumption, but increases oxygen requirements.
• Ergo 360 calculates the aircraft’s fuel and oxygen consumption at a given altitude and plots their ranges as different colored rings on an interactive map. The pilot can change the proposed altitude and see the resulting change in ring size on the map display, as well as the airports which fall into the area where the two rings overlap.
• Since fuel and oxygen consumption in a potential decompression is known before departure, additional fuel doesn't need to be carried for low altitude flight. Carrying less fuel means a lighter aircraft, which translates into more efficient flight.

OBDS Electronic Checklist Update Service

OBDS provides AC-120-64 compliant electronic checklist services (ECL) for hundreds of aircraft around the world.

We create, maintain, update and deploy Normal customizable electronic checklists for a wide variety of MFD or EFIS devices as well as Electronic Flight Bags (EFB).

One-stop management of all critical elements of flight movements.

While electronic checklist use is recommended by aviation safety organizations, and the majority of pilots prefer electronic checklists to paper, the complexity and effort necessary to comply with AC-120-64 on an ongoing basis is a problem for many flight departments.

OBDS solves the problem with an economical, easy-to-understand automated service to fully manage the production and periodic updates of customized normal checklists.

We’re licensed by both Honeywell and Rockwell Collins with the latest tools and information to best support your MFD

OBDS checklist experts manage hundreds of checklists each year and our service is a standard option from several aircraft manufacturers. 

You Provide the Text, We Handle the Rest.

OBDS has the tools, advanced technology and know-how to make your ECL program a success from Day 1 regardless of which MFD or EFIS you use.

We work to ensure that each checklist is customized to reflect your fleet’s specific requirements and formatted to achieve superior comprehension and readability.

Our automated online update service allows operators to update checklist procedures, anywhere, anytime.  The automated revision/approval cycle guarantees the end result is version controlled, accurate, and compliant.

Enjoy the benefits of ECL use

Studies in electronic checklist use (Rouse, Rouse & Hammer 1980/82) show a reduction in error rate and execution time when compared with paper checklists. In short, they:

  • REDUCE PROCEDURE ACCESS TIME
    Normal, abnormal and emergency checklists are easily accessed through menus that list the procedures for quick access.
  • IMPROVE FOCUS
    No need to follow a paper checklist with a ruler; each item is highlighted in a white box.
  • REDUCE MISSED ITEMS
    Line items can be CHECKED or SKIPPED. At the end of each procedure, any SKIPPED item is returned to, so no item is missed.
  • REDUCE COCKPIT CLUTTER
    No need to go searching for a checklist when it’s available on your MFD
  • MAINTAIN STANDARDS
    Fleets that use electronic checklists maintain a high level of standardization and risk mitigation.

(OPTIONAL) CHECKLIST SOFTWARE FOR ELECTRONIC FLIGHT BAG

While electronic checklists are typically used on a MFD, they can now be executed on any Windows® compatible EFB or portable computer.

Our ECL-EFB™ software features a large, easy-to-read display that supports touch-screen technology and simulates popular MFB-based checklist units.

When our experts make changes to the checklist, the EFB can be instantly updated by the pilot with the press of the “Sync” button via Internet.

As ECL-EFB™ has no upper memory limit; checklist pages that cannot fit into an MFD will fit into the EFB.

If your aircraft doesn’t have an ECL unit, simply pick up any low cost EFB and you’ll experience the same benefits.

Program Benefits:

FlightSafety Customers receive 20% off the ECL Customization & Update Service, and 30% off for ECL simulator for EFB. Click "Learn More" to request additional information.
