REACH Air Medical Services to Inaugurate Situational Awareness Technology. IRIS Will Add State-of-the-art Flight Tracking and Communications in Q4 2015


Reach Air Medical, April 06, 2015 - Santa Rosa, CA - REACH Air Medical Services, in partnership with Outerlink Global Solutions and Metro Aviation, will launch Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), exponentially expanding their tracking, communication and overall safety practices.

An all-encompassing new technology, IRIS provides global coverage and will allow REACH to record significantly greater amounts of aircraft data.

The data will be processed by onboard computers and filtered directly to the company’s Communications Center every ten seconds.

Outerlink adds customizable analytics software to the equipment, which will enable REACH to retain and evaluate their encrypted data. High-speed, uninterrupted connection and immediate air-to-ground, ground-to-air and air-to air communications will further improve the highly-respected safety standards REACH already employs with its fleet,

Sean Russell, President of REACH Air Medical Services, says, “We are pleased to partner with IRIS on this important component for our safety system. Our newly developed Operational Control Center will use this technology to track, monitor and communicate in real time with our aircraft, which will further support the safety of our crews and our patients. Also, as part of our Flight Operational Quality Assurance program, the ability to trend mechanical and flight operation patterns will help us continually improve our performance.”

Outerlink and Metro are both known as market-driven leaders in providing the helicopter industry with multiple tracking tools and fully integrated flight data recording. IRIS’ technology is similar to that used by the military and is the first commercial helicopter solution to employ this type of situational awareness technology.

Fred Buttrell, President and CEO of Air Medical Group Holdings, REACH’s parent company, stated, “We are excited to take this next step in our safety evolution by providing real-time integration to our company’s Communications Center. The technology will let us know that our aircraft are healthy and that they are being flown safely.”

Iris is designed to offer virtually limitless possibilities and will evolve as new industry needs arise, expanding and adapting to keep pace. Its ability to store multiple apps based on individual user requirements will further secure its position on the forefront. The company looks forward to Q4, and to moving forward with the help of the most technologically advanced system of its kind.
