SATAVIA's DECISIONX optimises aircraft flight planning to prevent contrails & reduce ~60% of aviation’s climate impact, which represents ~2% of human-induced climate change.


SATAVIA is an AI software and data company simplifying decision-making in aircraft flight operations and maintenance to make aviation smarter and greener.

SATAVIA's patented DECISIONX technology is the only solution delivering actionable insight in the aviation marketplace which is able to combine and validate multiple environmental, atmospheric, and aircraft and maintenance datasets.

While aviation accounts for 3.5% of human-induced climate impact, the majority of this is caused by indirect forcing from contrails – clouds formed by aircraft at cruise - which represents around two-thirds of aviation’s impact.

DECISIONX:NETZERO enables aircraft operators to accurately forecast, avoid, validate, quantify and offset aviation contrail emissions, which represents an opportunity to reduce anthropogenic climate forcing by up to 2% globally.

DECISIONX combines best-in-class technology from artificial intelligence, atmosphere and climate science, with enterprise-grade data and cloud software engineering.

SATAVIA has several blue-chip aerospace customers including Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) customers in the UK, France and Germany.

SATAVIA is currently breaking into the aircraft operator market and is conducting trials with commercial airline and defence aircraft operators.

The SATAVIA team combines a unique blend of expertise in data science, atmosphere and climate science, aerospace engineering and full-stack cloud software and data engineering.

Key Benefits

SATAVIA’s DECISIONX:NETZERO enables aircraft operators to optimise flight plans to prevent or minimise contrail formation and reduce climate impact by up to 30-60% each flight.

Post-flight, DECISIONX validates the forecast contrail radiative forcing mitigation and quantifies the climate benefit. This is then converted into a carbon offset credit for the operator.

Future steps are to integrate with aircraft operation systems to intelligently schedule aircraft routing and optimise flight-plans in flight.

The potential market size of contrail avoidance and carbon offset technology (if converted to carbon offset credits) is in excess of $10b annually.
