The Aviation Suite core product lines:

  • Air Drop Solution

    The Jacobs air drop solution allows U.S. and allied air forces to execute high precision air drop missions that range from troop insertions, to advanced forces logistics support, to critical humanitarian aid. Through incorporation of custom analytical and automation algorithms, our solution delivers a 98% reduction in drop zone size while simultaneously raising the air drop release point by 500% with no loss in accuracy, which keeps ground crews safer and our flight crews out of harms way.

  • Mission Planning

    The Jacobs Mission Planning solution is used by U.S. and allied air forces across the full lifecycle of an aviation mission – from front-end planning through flight mission execution – across multiple mission sets and multiple flight platforms.

  • Navigation Data

    Built to standards only imposed by high-stakes military aviation missions, the Jacobs Navigation Data solution delivers accurate, precise, and trusted aeronautical navigation capabilities for both governmental and commercial customers. By automating the review, cleansing, and packaging of ever-evolving geospatial big data sets, our Navigation Data solution ensures our customers are equipped with the most accurate, up-to-date, and reliable aeronautical navigation capabilities.
