What are Integrated Aircraft Avionics?

To pilot: all coordinated information is


available from a single source
To software engineer: full access to shared
data about situation, mission, and systems
To hardware designer: systems as a single
unit with ample bandwidth to support
processing

Where We Are Going

Mitigation/elimination of radiation and


electromagnetic effects on avionics
Slowing semiconductor wear out in devices
More progressive form of flight planning
Greater integration of in-flight data with ground
systems
Projects worked on by: Boeing, Honeywell, Smiths
Aerospace, and Goodrich Aerospace as well as
others.
