This project aims to further improve aviation safety by developing a new predictive data analytics capability which will transition the airline industry into taking a predictive, rather than a historical approach to aviation safety data analysis. It is the ability to forecast risk, to predict outcomes and then to mitigate against those risks that will make SPARC a game changer for air safety.
