Presentation paper abstracts for AVIONICS 09 conference

Avionics Conference : 11 December, 2008  (New Product)
Three key papers to be presented at the Avionics Conference and Exhibition on the 11th to the 12th of March 2009 at the Passenger Terminal (City Centre) Amsterdam, Holland.
* Planned revisions to DO-178C/ED-12C, DO-248C/ED-94C and DO-278/ED109 - A Joint Committee RTCA/SC205 and EUROCAE/WG71 has been working on the revision to DO-178B and related documents for several years. DO-178B was published over 17 years ago, and as software technology has evolved, so has the need to update this document. The new revision will be called DO-178C/ED-12C. This revised core document will have additional supplements to support new technologies, for example, Model based development, Object oriented technologies, and Formal methods. In addition document DO-248B/ED-94B 'Clarification of DO-178B', will be revised and so will DO-278, which addresses ground based systems. This presentation will describe the changes already agreed and those still being proposed for these documents, and explain some of the rationale behind these changes. These documents will become certification guidance material, and will affect all those involved in software for airplanes and related ground based systems.

This paper will be presented by George Romanski, President, Verocel, USA.


* The existing tools of RNP, HUDs and HGS - This paper consists of two sections. The first section identifies and discusses the existing tools of RNP, HUDs and HGS in addition to highlighting new tools such as surveillance, enhanced and synthetic vision systems. The intent of the second section is to introduce these powerful tools to the reader who may not be familiar with them and to highlight situations where these tools can improve operational efficiencies Section two is also intended to illustrate how the operational application of these tools can safely reduce approach minimums. Initial analysis suggests a visibility credit can be applied to existing RNP SAAAR approach minimums when flown with the HGS, down to a minimum. Further research will be required and at least one operator is willing to support this effort.

This paper will be presented by Perry Solmonson, Director, Horizon Air, USA.


* Safety and Security Challenges for Aviation Infrastructure in the next decade - Electronic systems in Aviation in the upcoming decade will have to fulfil more demanding requirements than ever before. This applies to ground based control systems, as well as airborne avionics. We're at the start of a complete overhaul of air traffic control systems, where concepts such as 'Free Flight', and 'Open Skies' will have to alleviate congestion and bottlenecks. With the advent of unmanned military aircraft (UAVs) operating that same space, security requirements emerge, that were not necessary in the past. Other new groups of airspace users are coming to the market: personal jets operated by far less experienced pilots will fly in the same airspace as professionals operating airliners or larger business jets. Safety of the smaller (possibly single pilot operated) aircraft also puts a responsibility on the shoulders of the designers of cockpit systems and the communication systems to prevent pilot overload. 4D air traffic control, full introduction of Mode-S transponders, TCAS systems and ADS-B, are already here today, but new more advanced communication equipment will further increase interoperability as well as safety through better situational awareness both in the cockpit and on the ground. Interoperability between military and civil users will also have to increase using a single airspace without compromising either safety or security. The latter will pose military system designers with extreme challenges. Their aircraft are primarily advanced weapon systems requiring cockpit equipment space to operate, and the introduction of multi-mode (civil/mil) communication functionality challenges for that same space of which there was already to little. Secure software defined radio technology allows the systems builder to build multiple radios onto a single system as one of the measures to condense more functionality into the same space.

This paper will be presented by Frank Van den Berg, Director, Green Hills Software, The Netherlands.
