Web-based weather maps make the collection and storage of weather data more efficient & effective. Our blog goes into detail.
Mosaic sought to provide an open and accessible model to predict the impacts of wind on air miles flown under an SBIR contract with NASA. Ultimately, this effort has developed a model that the broader aviation community can use as a publicly available data service.
Mosaic is thrilled to announce the selection of a NASA SBIR Phase II proposal. We will continue our work on the Cloud FMS project, read more about Phase I here. We propose to build a Cloud-Based Flight Management System (FMS), whereby safety-critical functions residing on the flight deck are separated Read more…
The taxi-out time predictions help pilots decide when to “single-engine taxi”: taxi most of the way to the runway with only a single-engine turned on, turning on the second engine just a few minutes before take-off. The single-engine taxi decision is typically made by pilots within an hour of push back. Still, our customer asked for predictions up to four hours in advance of the expected push back time.
As part of the ATD-2 effort, Mosaic, in conjunction with NASA, evaluated an ML-driven approach against the controller-derived assignments, hypothesizing that the performance would be equivalent to that of an expert air traffic controller.
We decided to approach this problem as a similarity learning modeling effort. We used convolutional neural networks to train a model that takes an image or video as input and outputs a vector representation of the input, such that similar inputs will be close to each other in the vector space. The vector learning is driven by a triplet loss function.
Mosaic is thrilled to announce a new project with NASA. Mosaic will design and deploy a Wind Miles Model to be used by the aviation community to simplify accurate calculation of the impact of forecast winds on any flight plan.
Working in conjunction with subject matter experts, data scientists can swiftly apply statistical tools and uncover emerging trends. This is extremely valuable for companies trying to operate in a disruption. Not only will executives have an accurate representation of their present situation, but new products & services can be devised from these insights.
Weather has a high impact on operations in many industries, and therefore is of great value to integrate into strategic decision making. Mosaic has roots in aviation research & development, giving us deep expertise in combining weather data streams with planning applications to facilitate efficient resource allocation.
