BOOST, An Important Project Milestone Reached By an Innovative Range of Services

Turbomeca (Safran) announced the achievement of a major milestone in the BOOST project
(BOOST – Bank of Online Services & Technologies): the delivery of the first version of the
IBM application.

BOOST is Turbomeca’s future range of advanced engine and maintenance management
services. With this unique, highly secure web-based application, customers will be able to
electronically share data with Turbomeca, smooth and facilitate operations and airworthiness
tasks as well as limit human factors through its specific online features.

At this year’s show, Turbomeca will present this innovative application to customers during
live demonstrations: discover the electronic engine logbook, the integrated links with the
web-IETP and its time-saving features for managing engine configuration and scheduling

The next major step in the BOOST project is the test phase. Turbomeca already signed
Collaboration Agreements with 6 customers in 2013 and is expecting new other customers
including Ecocopter (Chili) and Helisul Taxi Aereo (Brazil), to the group of testers. The first
round of tests have already started within Turbomeca and the application will be later tested
by the first customers this summer.

Turbomeca has also signed a “Memorandum of Understanding” (MOU) with 3 IT software
companies that specialize in aircraft maintenance and management solutions: Ramco
(India), AMS (Canada) and LTB400 (Germany). The aim of these agreements is to develop
compatibility solutions between BOOST and these renowned IT systems to enable
customers to fully capitalize on the experience and solutions offered by all companies.
