Now unlock the value of more aircraft connectivity

“Realize that everything is connected to everything else.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Arconics, the aircraft software company, was acquired by ViaSat, Inc. in November 2016. This exciting event delivers multiple benefits to our customers and partners. Arconics is now part of a NASDAQ-listed company with a valuation of over US$3.6 Bn, with access to a talent pool of over 3,300 amazing people and a global office network. But perhaps the greatest benefit of all is that we can now deliver on the promise of the fully connected aircraft, by linking our app suite and aircraft data, via the onboard wifi network, to the ViaSat satellite constellation. Passengers will access the internet with the same experience they expect at home or work. Pilots and cabin crew will get updates while in the air. Flight operations will monitor the fleet in real-time, no matter where in the world aircraft are located. Maintenance and engineering will use aircraft data to streamline operations. Airline management will maximise ancillary revenues, deploy apps quickly and make data-driven decisions. Arconics software and connectivity truly enables the connected aircraft. Let’s take an amazing journey together…

Our vision

The Arconics vision is of a seamless, end-to-end aviation experience; from ground to sky to satellite and everywhere in between. Together with our partner airlines, we foresee an inherently profitable aviation sector with ever-increasing ancillary revenues, maximum safety and operational efficiency, and the ultimate passenger experience. This future will be powered by the flexible, future-proof Arconics Aircraft Software Platform.

Our mission

In realising the Arconics vision, our mission is to provide best-in-class software solutions in electronic flight bag, safety and compliance document management, cabin management and wireless in-flight entertainment.
We will streamline the handling of data on and off the aircraft, enhance
the passenger experience and drive ancillary revenues for airlines.

Our values

Arconics adopts a set of values that are critical to our success and to the success of our customers. We will constantly innovate, lead our industry and exceed expectations. Our culture supports our employees, so that they can deliver an exceptional experience to our customers. Most importantly, we will align our values with our clients’ values. That’s when the magic happens.

Building long-term partnerships

At Arconics, we live and breathe mobile technology and we are passionate about aviation. We see the possibilities of both and we know how to unite the two to your advantage. Our team focuses exclusively on frontline aviation software and we know how to design and deliver systems that create immediate and enduring competitive advantage for aircraft operators. We build long-term partnerships with our customers, which means that we quickly deploy solutions to meet immediate requirements, but we also offer the benefits that can be delivered by ongoing product improvements, new product developments and the exciting possibilities offered by the radical innovations that are still in our lab.

We specialise in aircraft mobile applications for pilots, cabin crew and passengers. Our apps make flying safer and more efficient, while entertaining passengers and opening new service and revenue opportunities for airlines.

We help airlines deploy the latest software quickly and cost effectively. We help airline staff work faster and smarter. We help pilots fly safely and efficiently. We help passengers relax and love their experience. We help auditors and regulators see every document trail. How can we help your airline?

Our power is in our team

Over the years, we’ve built an extraordinary team and developed deep expertise in aviation, airline software, mobile application development, content management and distribution, and aircraft operations. Many of our team members have backgrounds in aviation, so we truly understand the challenges and opportunities within the sector. Every one of us is an #AvGeek and we’re proud of that.

We spend our days delivering exciting projects, promoting nextgen technologies and working to solve our customers’ problems in airline safety and regulatory compliance, document management, EFB and wireless IFE.

To keep the creative juices flowing, we also do some cool stuff outside of work. We travel a lot, climb mountains, run marathons, cycle in the Tour de France, play volleyball, eat TimTams, cheer on our football teams and spend hours talking aviation!

Between us, we speak eleven languages (English, Italian, Spanish, Polish, German, Russian, Gaelic Irish, Turkish, Arabic, Farsi and French) and we have team members from all over the world. Our HQ is in Dublin’s Silicon Docks, right at the heart of the world’s newest software innovation hub.
