    One pilot is safe, but the rescuers are looking for the other pilot.

    Airbus/Cosling Mx Software Chosen for French Mirage 2000 Fleet

    by Beth Stevenson
    - June 19, 2019, 7:34 AM

    Aircraft maintenance planning software developed jointly by Airbus Defence & Space and Cosling has been selected to be deployed on the French air forces Mirage 2000 fleet. To be rolled out for the fighter fleet later this year, the Optaforce software was developed in response to the French DGA procurement agencys OptiPlan challenge, and it is also supported by the French aeronautical maintenance department (DMA).

    The software is based on an optimization algorithm using artificial intelligence, which can generate different planning scenarios, and is used to maximize aircraft availability, reduce maintenance costs, and optimize the use of resources. It will additionally be possible to manage contingencies and easily reconfigure the aircraft for new missions, thus saving time and improving fleet management, Airbus said.

    A prototype was built in just three months, it added. We built the algorithm by successive iterations integrating the suggestions and remarks of the chief warrant officers as we proceeded, Jean-Guillaume Fages, co-founder of Cosling said. This agile operation allowed us to quickly develop a functional prototype, able to help all stakeholders in their decision making.
    Scrum.

    100 missiles for 200 million.... bit different.

    it's on the way with new patrol boats and very long flights to e.g. La Runion. France has the second largest maritime EEZ, and should take care of it.

    As a Finn who stood next to F-35 last Saturday I really hope we'll choose Gripen E (or Rafale or Typhoon).

    "Airbus Defence & Space and Dassault promised that this would 'initiate demonstrator programmes for launch at the Paris air show'."

    That is a real problem (establishing compatibility betweeen JASDF and SCAF)

    Think the Polish is the realistic take away here, the rest. Meh..

    I really doubt that the raw user requirements had much input into the selection. Much more likely to be some political posturing, or a redundant second-source 'insurance'.

    Still if they want to stand-up an entirely new supply chain for a single-digit fleet it's their money to burn. The Thai Air Force model if you will.

    Commonality with the USAF, I think you mean. It's unlikely that they'll be operating with the JASDF, & I think that's the only other KC-46 customer so far. Of non-USAF tanker operators they might operate with, Italy has KC-767 & everyone else has or is buying A330 MRTT.
