Fuel Matrix Limited


The Fuel Matrix System

The Fuel Matrix System (FMS) comprises two breakthrough technologies for deployment in aviation. Both are proprietary and both are patented.

The FMS Fuel Load Optimiser is proven in tests with airlines to enable pilots and flight planners to take into account late changes to flight metrics in good time to reflect them in the accuracy of the final fuel uplift. Although these changes have previously been known, pilots have not been able to use the information in the pre-flight time available to them. Our software provides results in 90 seconds and safety requirements are respected. We have demonstrated the ability to reduce fuel costs by up to $2bn, and CO2 emissions by up to 10m tonnes, across the sector, per year. This is a stand-alone product.

FMS Cabin Load Measurement will enable the actual weight of cabin load to be measured to replace the current use of estimates. This will enable further refinement of fuel uplift calculations. In addition, it will enable airports to restrict the growth of their carbon footprints as they expand to accommodate the huge growth in demand from passengers and airlines. Weight capture for passengers will be automatic and confidential and causes no GDPR or DPA issues - biometric data is already widely used by airlines and airports. Our software will integrate readily with modern self-actuated passenger systems, to further enhance the speed and smoothness of the passengers'​ journeys through an airport.
