PRISM, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARGUS International, Inc., is proud to announce that it saw a record 152% growth in helicopter customers over the last 22 months. This growth is a testament to the company’s extensive helicopter expertise and world-class SMS product, ARMOR. A web-based system, ARMOR allows a rotor wing operator to manage the activity within their SMS (Safety Management System) from any internet accessible location around the globe, 24 hours a day, and from an iPad (an iPhone App will be available soon).
“The PRISM people worked with us over the phone to find out how we operated and what we needed in our SMS,” said Jason Rubright, Director of Operations at J.R. Helicopters. “Their system works; I think it is one of the best options open to small operators wanting to implement a SMS.”
PRISM SMS offers a comprehensive package of products and services that can be customized to meet the specific requirements of any helicopter operation. Historically, PRISM’s services have proven exceptionally effective for aerial firefighting, law enforcement and tourism operations. Other segments such as Air Medical are also quickly seeing the value of an SMS system provided by PRISM. PRISM is completely IS-BAO (International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations) compliant and fully aligned with the FAA AC 120-92A and EASA framework for SMS development.
“Our helicopter customers are very pleased with our expertise and rotary wing focus that caters to their unique operations,” said Chris Young, Vice President - Helicopter Aviation Services. “We continue to identify opportunities to support helicopter operators with SMS implementation and will deliver new tools that makes the management processes more effective.”
PRISM SMS offers a constructed pathway to ease the burden of compliance and improve the effectiveness of a flight operation. PRISM understands the 24/7/365 nature of the aviation industry and has developed ARMOR, a web-based tool that provides operators with a system that easily enables all employees to gain required access to at any time, while allowing the safety officer the ability to manage all elements of their SMS from a laptop and internet connection from anywhere around the world. PRISM continues to be an industry leader by frequently enhancing features and functions of the web-based system that consistently delivers the best product to its users.
