Next Steps in Integration and Implementation for SESAR and Next-Gen
Wednesday 26th May
Joint Opening Keynote
9am - 10:30am in the Auditorium
Mandates and Regulatory Framework Updates
11:00 - 12:30
Despite the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic's massive impact on the aerospace industry, enhanced safety and communications between the aircraft in the sky and the ground control continue to dominate the industry as technology becomes and increasing driver. Airlines need to move from capacity to efficiency, so what's the latest regulations and how are regulators and mandates impacting on the industry? What needs to be installed in the aircraft to meet these mandates and what is the impact on avionics for operators? Following the Coronavirus pandemic and its economic impact on the industry, who is going to pay for updates?
What are the latest developments and trends in Communication, Navigation and Surveillance and flight tracking to mitigate these possibilities. How can we optimise infrastructure and how can enhanced surveillance contribute towards safety and security? What is safety services approved? How do we make positioning more robust with hybridisation? How do we transition from SES to the next systems using the EASA framework?
The aviation industry has been in the spotlight for its adverse impact on the environment, yet huge strides have been made to reduce the environmental impact of aircraft. The Coronavirus Pandemic has shone a bigger spotlight on the sector to be more 'green', with much government financial support linked to environmental change. What are technical capabilities for environmental challenges, how do we decrease emissions and what is the CO2 limitation challenge? What is impact of given technology of environment (at different stages of flight) and what realistic role can can electrical power play?
As the aircraft becomes more integrated and connected, security and safety concerns are becoming heightened. What are the challenges with connected FMS and what are cyber security implications of IMA? How do we ensure safety and security with the increasing use of multicore processors?
Following the recent pandemic crisis, airlines need to move form capacity to efficiency. An important role for the need of Avionics to analyse more and more different types of data rates - data which is difficult to treat with single protocol/architecture, causing major under or over use of bandwidth. How can new services and applications be better supported? What is the Data Value Chain and benefit of data sourcing (collected by airlines)?
How will the industry change after the impact of the Coronavirus panedemic and how will technology assist in efficiencies for airlines and aircraft? With more research and investment being applied in urban mobility, single pilot operations and autonomous systems, what does the future hold and what part will avionics have to play? How do we develop standards for use of AI and machine learning and what impact will autonomy have on the pilot and passenger?
