REAL TIME VISUALIZATIONS
A map of the world is our canvas for displaying real time data of Raytheon Technologies’ aerospace initiatives across the globe. The display cycles through several different data points to showcase the live feed of air traffic using Raytheon Technologies jet engines. One scene would utilize flight tracking data that highlights real-time flight paths. Another scene would focus on take-off and landing points that ping at each location or MRO stations illuminated for each jet engine repair made. The feeds were also broken down in 3 categories for users to select, regional, wide-body and narrow-body. The user also had the ability to view all of the airliners to see a beautiful array of colors and flight paths light up the screens.
Other concepts we developed came from our research and wanting to use public facing metrics. For example, visualizing the number of people transported by Raytheon Technologies technology or the number of people employed because of Raytheon. Each highlight, ping, and data point could also be used to reveal the map beneath it to represent how Raytheon is helping us find our way around the globe.
To build the visualizations we used open source (Safe) data like Flight Aware and others to gather all our information. From there we programmed each screen to showcase our designs from the data in the two different areas of the office.
The Pratt & Whitney Display gave our team a chance to tell a longer form narrative through design, especially since these screens were more approachable and capable of touch interaction. We selected specific narratives for these experiences based on Raytheon Technologies brand attributes which involved Movement (aerospace) Safety and Comfort (building systems)
