In March 2019, Hypera as a partner of Norwegian company Opscom Systems, which deals with Safety Management Systems, participated in a workshop on a new version of SMS Opscom 2.0, which brings several important improvements along with a new design.
One of the main innovations is the possibility of inserting a multi-layer map base of the airport and subsequent reporting using the GPS position in the mobile version of Opscom, thus controlling the case management and monitoring the concentration of occurrences of reports directly within the map. Another benefits are full-screen layout and new design, which is uniform for all devices and focused on user, who can easily organize items and menus within the system according to their priorities and requirements.
Opscom Systems is the winner of the Inter Data Award at Inter Airport Europe in Munich. Opscom is installed at more than 70 airports throughout Europe and also offers solutions for Air operators, MRO maintenance organizations, drone operators and heliports.

Hypera Aviation Solutions participated in the India Aviation International Exhibition & Conference on Civil Aviation, which was held in Hyderabad, India, in March 2016. The event aimed to provide a platform for discussion of today’s challenges and opportunities in civil aviation. The industry met at a crucial junction - a time when the Indian Government is in the process of formulating it's National Aviation Strategy, and has been taking other steps to fuel the growth of this sector.
The Czech Republic was represented by official delegation and presented Czech aviation sector in joint stand, where Hypera and other eight companies presented their products and services.
Hypera Aviation Solutions’ took part in a number of fruitful meetings with local and federal transport and aviation authorities which served as a basis for establishing promising future partnerships. In particular, Hypera Aviation Solutions successfully raised great interest in its existing portfolio of services and activities as well as new services with respect to airport development, regional connectivity and the use of GNSS applications.
The final day of the event witnessed the signing of two Memoranda of Understanding between Hypera and local partners. The MOUs cover cooperation of their parties in the areas of provision of technical and support services to aviation development and privatization of airports , including the enhancement of safety, efficiency, capacity of airports and airspace management and the implementation of modern technologies and procedures.
14th annual international scientific conference, organized by the Air Transport Department and the Air Training and Education Centre of University of Žilina in Žilina under patronage of European project named “VEGA 1/0838/13- THE BASIC RESEARCH OF CHARGES POLICY AT THE SPECIFIC MARKET OF AIRPORT SERVICES”, took place on 27th – 29th of January, 2016, in university resort Zuberec, approximately 80 kilometres from Žilina, Slovakia.
On behalf of Hypera, the conference was attended by its CEO Kamil Slavík. Hypera published an article “Advantages of Using Software Tools for Safety Management (SMS) in Aviation” in the official brochure of the conference and Mr. Slavik performed a presentation highlighting key points of this article during official program of the conference. The article describes advantages of software tools for creation and maintenance of controlled documentation, hazard identification, risk management and elimination, occurrence reporting and solution of operational events with potential impact to safety, as well as quality and safety audits from the perspective of small and medium companies involved in civil aviation (aerodromes and aircraft operators, in particular). Using example of specific product line of modules offered by Opscom Systems, the objective of this article is to disprove arguments frequently used by representatives of small and medium companies in aviation to defend their current solutions based just on shared documents or even paper archiving.
Mr. Slavik also used the conference as an opportunity for many official as well as unofficial meetings with professors and lectors from University of Žilina (his “Alma Mater”) as well as other representatives of authorities or business entities involved in civil aviation especially in Slovakia and Czech Republic.
