Info

Aircraft production and maintenance requires aircraft to be moved into tight hangars, in closeproximity to obstructions. Each movement of an aircraft poses a high risk of collision with foreignobjects such as other aircraft, vehicles, cranes, and even the hangar itself. Moving an aircraft requiresthe assistance of multiple workers to help watch and guide the aircraft surfaces throughout themovement. If a collision occurs huge monetary losses can occur due to repairs, downtime, and lostfares. Through this identified problem, Flugilo was created.Flugilo in its basic form is a non-permanent parking sensor system for aircraft and other largevehicles. The sensor body itself can quickly be attached and detached to various types of aircraftmodels via a set of suction cups. Individual sensors wirelessly communicate to a central receiver,telling the operator when the vehicle is approaching an object. Although the technology was designedwith aircraft in mind, it could be used for any application where moving large objects could cause riskof damage.With two distinct value-added propositions of avoiding costly collisions in the long term usage, andalso saving money each move by reducing the resources needed to move an aircraft, Flugilo has a lotto offer the aerospace industry.We are currently developing the business plan and next iteration of prototype of the parking systemand are looking for partners for testing and development. Given the market size of aircraft productionand maintenance, we believe there is good potential for growth in this field of technology.
