Bourne Resource


Bourne Resource is Bourne Systems’ development team designing and building the next generation of smart systems. Bourne Resource staff have over 20 years’ experience in developing operations and safety management systems for commercial airlines, one of the most regulated industries in the world with a safety track record second to none! We are building on the very stringent and proven safety methodology we find in aviation to offer safety management systems that can be deployed in other transport industries such as rail, sea and road.

2019 has seen Bourne Resource start writing version 3.0 of Airbourne FTM in Angular. Angular is an open-source front-end framework developed by Google for creating dynamic, modern web apps. Angular applications are built using TypeScript language, a superscript for JavaScript, which ensures higher security as it supports types (primitives, interfaces, etc.). This front-end framework is today used by more than 44.3% of software engineers for creating user interfaces (Source: Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2017). Angular helps build interactive and dynamic single page applications (SPAs) with its features including templating, two-way binding, modularization, RESTful API handling, dependency injection, and AJAX handling. – Translated for mortals, this will result in faster system speeds and more scope for simplifying the user experience. AirBourne FTM v. 3.0 will have a gradual integrated roll-out and screens will take on a new appearance as the development continues but AirBourne FTM will remain fully operational. Bourne Resource perform extensive testing prior to release of any changes and therefore current users will be able to continue as normal.

Requested by a current user of AirBourne FTM, the Bourne Resource have also started work on developing an Engine management module which will have the ability to use flight data (from the FDR) to capture and show engine trends i.e. EGT’s and, catch any engine exceedances in order to alert the operator to investigate. This system, like the FTM, will  provide focused control, simple methodology and ease of use  – the signature of Bourne Systems solutions,
