For Aircraft Operators

Safety Line has joined forces with University and Research Centers specialized in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to develop innovative solutions for improved flight efficiency.

Since inception, Safety Line has worked on joint research projects with Academic partners including INRIA, Ecole Polytechnique, Université Pierre VI Pierre et Marie Curie to leverage existing flight data towards improving flight efficiency. The resulting innovations have been acknoledged through 4 patents and have given birth to our OptiFlight range of solutions. 

Safety Line is also the coordinator for a Cleansky 2 project, under the name of PERF-AI.


Initiated by the European Commission, the Clean Sky research program, aimed at a Greener Aviation, issued a call for proposal for a research project to optimize aircraft performance through the use of Artificial Intelligence. The project  Safety Line under the name of “Perf AI”. Safety Line is supported in this project by its long-term partner, the French national research institute for digital sciences, Inria, and has invited two airlines, Lufthansa and Transavia France to join the project advisory board. 

Clean Sky 2 is the largest European research program developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2, gas emissions, and noise levels produced by aircraft.

The project leading to this application has received funding from the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 815914


The partnership between Safety Line and the COMMANDS research team resulted in the creation of an Inria Innovation Lab. Dubbed OSCAR (OptimiSation of Consumption for AiRplanes) and established for a period of three years, this joint laboratory focused on the development of Safety Line’s OptiClimb solution so as to offer improved flight efficiency opportunities to airlines. 

Benefits for the industry include optimizing fuel consumption and reducing CO2 emissions. 


In a context that is evolving strongly in economic, environmental and technological terms, on-board avionics systems have changed in terms of architecture, compactness, electronics and functionalities. Now these avionics platforms are entering a new era: the era of generalized connectivity for a more autonomous aircraft. Connectivity is now the next breakthrough innovation for next generation aircraft: avionics will no longer just be onboard, but distributed both on board and on the ground.
