These proceedings give a comprehensive view of the major technical
changes and issues affecting "customers", airframe manufacturers
and their suppliers. They focus on areas such as customer
pressures, the avionics lifecycle, advances in digital networks and
communications, software and integrated modular avionics (IMA), new
display technology and human factor issues, together with the
more-electric aircraft, and COTS equipment. The papers under
"Project Updates" looked at: future offensive air system - avionic
requirements, new integrated avionics architecture for the next
generation Airbus "The A3XX", and the UK Apache. "What the
'Customer' Wants" studied: the "partnership" approach to
development, a maintenance-free operating period, and avionics
systems certification - the authority's needs. "Software Trends"
covered: towards a scheduling and timing analysis solution for
integrated modular avionic systems, open systems Ada technology
demonstration programme, and software techniques for IMA - system
management, system security and blueprints. "Digital Networks"
included: ATM for the digital battlespace, emerging opportunities
for applying COTS optoelectronics in avionics fibre-op "Displays"
examined: visor projected helmet mounted displays for helicopters,
and common type qualification (CTQ) for the DASH 8Q S400.
"Life-Cycle Management" discussed: commercial components -
commercial problems, life cycle support in a commercial world, and
cosmic radiation effects on avionics. "The More-Electric Aircraft"
covered: future trends in aircraft electrical systems,
more-electric aircraft power generation requirement impacts, and
more-electric engines for more-electric aircraft. "Digital
Communications" included: digital signal processing (DSP) radios:
trends, benefits and challenges, plans for testing and validation
of the next-generation VHF digital air/ground communications system
by the US FAA, and application of software radio techniques for
airborne passenger telephony and future ATC communication systems.
"Systems" dealt with: EFCS - demonstration of a new electronic
flight control system, exploiting the potential of integrated
modular avionics, open systems in the US department of defence:
three years of progress, and ground zero zero: flying into the next
millennium with embedded systems. "Supplementary Papers" looked at:
human machine interface deployment through code generation
techniques, an ergonomics assessment of GPS receivers, integrated
voice/data communications in the VHF band using digital techniques,
and sensor fusion effectiveness and system life-cycle management. A
delegates list and exhibitor details are also included. The event
was organized in association with the Royal Aeronautical Society.
