OSS and FLYHT Expand Relationship with the Design and Manufacturing of 5G Enabled AFIRS™ Edge Solution

OSS to Lead Hardware Design and Manufacture of FLYHT Aerospace Solutions’ New Aircraft Interface Device and Health Monitoring System — World’s First Wireless Quick Access Recorder with 5G Mobile Wireless for Real-time Remote Access

One Stop Systems, Inc. and FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. announced the commencement of a multi-year design and manufacturing collaboration for FLYHT’s automated flight information reporting systems (AFIRS™) Edge family, including its new AFIRS Edge+. The expanded relationship ensures that FLYHT can access OSS’s scaled capabilities as it launches the aviation industry’s first-to-market 5G-enabled avionics solutions.

The AFIRS Edge is an aircraft interface device (AID) that connects aircraft data with EFB applications and provides airlines with Wireless Quick Access (WQAR) capabilities while serving as a gateway on the aircraft for critical real-time information and onboard data storage.

The Edge also serves as a data port for FLYHT’s actionable intelligence services, such as fuel management, aircraft health monitoring, real-time engine data reporting, and airport gate performance monitoring.

Further, when coupled with a real-time I.P. satellite connection, the Edge enables weather data customers to work with airlines to implement FLYHT’s Aircraft Based Observations (ABO) weather systems and solutions. ABO can include water vapor humidity data to enable enhanced weather forecasting capabilities.

“We chose OSS as our manufacturing partner for our AFIRS Edge systems because of their proven capabilities in ruggedizing commercial aerospace devices and expertise in rugged edge solutions for A.I., sensor processing, and sensor fusion,” stated FLYHT president and interim CEO Kent Jacobs. “We also want to leverage OSS’s expertise in the design, development, integration, testing, and manufacturing of new products like our AFIRS Edge+, which can enable faster time-to-market.”

For OSS, the design and manufacturing engagement with FLYHT is valued at a minimum of US$6 million over the initial five-year term. OSS expects to begin production and shipments of AFIRS Edge+ in the second quarter of 2024.

“This major win builds upon OSS being a long-time provider of embedded compute and storage technology for FLYHT’s flight safety equipment and networking prototypes,” noted OSS VP of Sales Robert Kalebaugh. “Our selection by an industry leader like FLYHT represents a strong validation of our design, engineering, and manufacturing capabilities, as well as the comprehensive customer service we have delivered to FLYHT over the years.”

OSS CEO Mike Knowles commented: “This multi-year engagement expands our position in commercial aerospace, and further strengthens our technology development and manufacturing platform. Furthering our relationship with FLYHT as a long-standing valued partner underscores our commitment to aviation safety and delivering mission-critical performance without compromise for this important industry.”
