BOHEMIA, N.Y., 3 March 2010. Officials at Airbus, the European passenger jet manufacturer in Toulouse, France, needed MIL-STD-1553 avionics databus components for their company's new generation of A350 XWB jetliners. They found their solution from Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y.
Considered a standard, MIL-STD-1553 has caught the attention of commercial aircraft manufacturers like Airbus that want to use 1553's inherent reliability, robustness, maturity, and EMI performance in commercial avionics, DDC officials say.
Airbus based its selection on DDC's experience supplying MIL-STD-1553 data bus boards, components, and 1553 software solutions for military, commercial, and aerospace applications, and competitive pricing. Another important consideration was that DDC's products facilitate achieving RTCA/DO-254 Level A certification, a significant factor in the avionics industry.
