BRIEF

Next-generation briefing application that helps your airline in the process of preparing Briefing Packages (BPs).

Improving existing procedures in your airline!

S4A Smart BRIEF gathers relevant information from different sources to seamlessly creates a briefing package and delivers it to the right person at the right time.

BRIEF
The flight plan contents, including weather and NOTAM information, can be configured according to your airline’s specific rules and regulations. No matter where you are, our product allows you to securely access up-to-date flight plan information anywhere and anytime, using web browser. Like all of our products, S4A Smart BRIEF is role based, enabling your flight crew to access the pertinent information with a single click.

Briefing packages are tailored to each flight plan with emphasis being given to the information of importance to the pilot. With our briefing system, which includes merging, filtering and highlighting of weather and NOTAMs, the briefing pack size is reduced and a much-improved flight briefing experience is delivered to your flight crew. S4A Smart BRIEF is continuously being improved with feedback from our clients and as a result, is an industry favourite!

Automation

With S4A Smart BRIEF, you are able to define flight selectors based on various criteria such as flight stations, FIR, ETOPS, etc. You can also set rules to specify when and to whom a BP should be automatically sent. These rules may also be used to customize the content of automatically generated BPs. The airline staff can always update the briefing content manually.

Fuel and weight values are calculated within the application base on aircraft specific and/or flight plan limitations. This module enables communication between pilots, dispatchers, fuellers, handling agents, and many other operational users while including a full electronically auditable archive.
