AiRTHM - Airbus Real Time Health Monitoring

Real-time aircraft manufacturer expertise to improve customers’ operational performance.

Airbus Real Time Health Monitoring (AiRTHM) is a state-of-the-art service based on Airbus’ engineering expertise and A380 technology, allowing real-time remote access to more than 250,000 parameters (ACARS communication). The A380 certified uplink capability enables Airbus to further investigate warnings and faults, both in-flight and on-ground, to deliver real-time advice service.

A dedicated Airbus engineering team has been established to deliver AiRTHM service 24/7 to operators' maintenance control centres, relying on Airbus’ engineering departments and knowledge. This service is offered to all A380 operators and also will be available from the A350 XWB jetliner’s service entry.
