Marinvent Corporation was originally founded in 1983 for the purpose of conducting aerospace research and development. Nowadays, the company focuses on helping its customers reduce their program risk and bring their products to market efficiently. The company is headquartered on the outskirts of Montreal, one of the largest aerospace centres in the world.
In 2016 Marinvent launched Certification Center Canada (3C), Canada’s first Independent flight test and certification DAO, which now undertakes all certification services previously supplied by Marinvent. 3C retains Marinvent as a strategic partner and supplier of equipment, engineering and tools.
PRINCIPAL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
PROGRAM RISK REDUCTION
Marinvent Corporation offers a unique combination of technical experts, flying avionics test bed, test pilots, software tools and research simulator to help customers bring new products to market efficiently.
Marinvent focuses on novel ways of reducing the risk, time and cost of aerospace innovation using its one-of-a- kind research simulator and flying avionics test bed. Marinvent also fosters research and development collaboration with other aerospace companies, and licenses IP to create customer product differentiators.
Among Marinvent’s customers are: NASA, FAA, DND, Transport Canada, PSPC, foreign governments and many of the world’s largest aerospace corporations.
CRITICAL AERONAUTICAL SOFTWARE
Marinvent developed and certified theTCL/ ML3TM software library, which is the de-facto world standard for the certified electronic depiction of aviation charting information. This accomplishment led directly to the development of the Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) technology, for which Marinvent received a prestigious Aviationweek and SpaceTechnology laureate as well as the Canadian American Business Achievement Award, the Aerospace Association of Quebec’s (AQA) Aerospace Enterprise of theyear award, and the Canadian Business Aviation Association’s Award of Merit .
FLIGHTTEST AND CERTIFICATION SOFTWARE TOOL-SUITE (SYNTHESISTM)
Marinvent has produced an advanced integrated tool to develop and track the generation of test and certification artefacts that support the certification of aircraft, avionics and aircraft systems.The web-based software suite yields significant efficiency and re-use benefits over traditional, largely ad-hoc methods and is already being used on multiple live projects.The Synthesis tool-suite is available from Marinvent for licensing to third parties .
AIRFOIL PERFORMANCE MONITOR (APM)
Marinvent has developed APM, a revolutionary, real time, stall margin indication technology that functions equally well with contaminated or iced airfoils . APM is currently the only technology that detects compressibility (high speed) stalls, and also predicts takeoff performance degradation during the takeoff roll, at speeds as low as 40 knots .The patented APM system has been the subject of numerous articles, wind tunnel tests and flight trials . APM is applicable to fixed and rotary wing and UAS applications . in addition to saving lives and equipment loss through the reduction of icing-related incidents, APM also has significant potential benefits in terms of fuel economy and break wear and can be applied to help extend range and payload of UAS.
FLYING AVIONICSTEST BED
Marinvent operates a highly sophisticated airborne test-bed supported by a dedicated research flight simulator. These have been instrumental in the development and certification of navigation and safety systems for aircraft as diverse as the EC145 Eurocopter and the Boeing 747 . Thetest-bed is also uniquely configurable as an “optionally Piloted Vehicle” (oPV), which can be flown from an aft-cabin control station using off-the-shelf Unmanned Vehicle control software. The innovative work performed by Marinvent’s aircraft led to the company being awarded the Canadian Business Aviation Association’s industry Support Safety Award, the inaugural C2-MTl Aerospace Sector Award and the NASA Small Business Subcontractor of the Year Award in 2014.
