SAN DIEGO, 11 May 2009. – The keynote address at the inaugural Avionics USA conference and exhibition will focus on the challenges for integrating next-generation air traffic management and avionics systems. Tim Tuttle, program manager and associate technical fellow in product development at Boeing Commercial Airplanes in Long Beach, Calif., delivers this presentation at the conference, which will be held June 1 and 2 at the San Diego Convention Center.
The conference theme is "Driving Innovation and Managing Change," and content will touch on how designers and system integrators are handling the challenges of next-generation systems and standards for commercial and military avionics.
Tuttle's keynote address begins at 8:40 on June 1 and is titled Challenges and Strategies for Integrating Next-Generation Avionics and ATM Technology."
"Navigating the challenges in today's commercial avionics industry has become more difficult due to the current economic climate and the need for technological and programmatic integration between the next generation air traffic management systems and evolving avionics platforms," Tuttle says. "Boeing Commercial Aircraft and its state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliner are driving next-generation aviation technology. This keynote address will cover how Boeing sees the future landscape for avionics integration and will consider new strategies for realizing operational capabilities that are consistent with both NextGENand SESAR."
Session topics include air traffic management, runway incursion, electronic flight bags, layered information assurance for avionics systems, certification and standards for future avionics systems, avionics components standards, cost benefit analysis of implementing performance-based navigation, avionics upgrades, obsolescence, and more.
Avionics USA is the first global expansion of the successful Avionics conference and exposition, most recently held last week in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Avionics U.S.A. will be co-located with the Military & Aerospace Electronics Forum. Both shows will share an exhibit floor, but have two separate conferences.
The events are brought to you by Avionics Intelligence and >Military & Aerospace Electronics magazine. The Avionics-Intelligence Website and eNewsletter launched in November 2008 and covers all aspects of commercial and defense avionics.
