London, UK, Tuesday, 16th April 2024:  Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) has appointed Andrew Knott as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO), with a view to driving rapid application development and maximising software automation in the cloud.

Knott brings more than 25 years of experience in tech and software development to HLT, most of which has been in travel and aviation, including building cloud-native SaaS platforms for private aviation, as well as complex, large-scale travel platforms.

“Andrew is a seasoned CTO and brings a wealth of experience to our team, particularly in leveraging the latest cloud-based technologies for the benefit of our customers,” said Yuval Baruch, Chief Executive Officer, Hermes Logistics Technologies.

“He has built SaaS products from scratch and has been delivering complex software products as native cloud solutions for ten years, so he is well placed to drive the continuous development of our cloud-based SaaS solutions at Hermes.”

The father-of-one has worked at CTO-level for 15 years, delivering high-capacity, reliable and secure applications for the airline industry, and has experience in machine learning and AI, building large language model (LLM)-based products in technical support applications.

“The Hermes core application is impressive, quickly adaptable, feature-rich and able to fit the many different and complex requirements of customers around the world, putting Hermes in a strong position for growth,” said Andrew Knott, CTO, Hermes Logistics Technologies.

“The Hermes SaaS product represents a huge opportunity to drive digitalisation in the air cargo industry, and when we combine that with the flexibility and efficiency of cloud hosting, the potential gains for customers are vast.”

Andrew will lead HLT’s strategy to develop the Hermes Ecosystem and increase digitalisation in the air cargo industry through API integration.

As CTO he will also support the company’s work to roll out fast, resilient, and secure implementations and upgrades to the latest Hermes cargo management system (CMS) through automation.

As a leading provider of cargo management technology, HLT is focused on developing cost-effective, future-proof tech solutions that drive operational efficiency for cargo handlers.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
