Airfield inspections suffer from a decentralized paper-based workflow that allows for multiple points of failure and inefficiencies. Spiral puts checklists and forms into an easy-to-use tablet interface to speed up routine reporting, eliminating the need for paper forms.
Inspectors are able to report damage by attaching coordinates (Lat/Long) to a centralized record. This greatly increases the situational awareness of all parties (civil engineering, environmental, safety, etc.) involved in the workflow.
The platform allows for attaching pictures to the report thus improving decision-making and helping inform subsequent corrective actions.
Spiral uses a Digital Twin that includes historical inspection data (e.g. Pavement Condition Index, PCI), 3D CAD model, real-time operational data, maintenance metadata, imaginary surfaces, elevation, etc.
With access to the Digital Twin through the tablet or an AR headset, operators are able to perform visually and algorithmically accurate obstruction analysis, leveraging sophisticated data tracking the condition of pavement, lighting, navigational aids, and barriers.
Civil Engineers and other airfield staff will be able to find the exact damage location instantaneously. Accurate visualization of the Temporary Construction Waivers (TCW) will speed up the evaluation for commanders.
As the Digital Twin is constantly updated with the new and useful data from sources such as sensors, predictive insights can be generated for Condition Based Maintenance.
The data collected can be used to predict combat or weather scenarios, for instance detecting certain types of damage caused by aircraft X under Y conditions.
Overlay critical information onto the real world objects and directly input new data with camera capture.
