The certification of transport category cabin interiors requires a thorough understanding of Part 25 Transport Category aircraft cabin interior safety and crashworthiness regulations and compliance requirements. Regardless of whether it is a simple modification, a specialized completion (VIP or VVIP) or airline passenger configuration, engineers, designers, and airworthiness personnel must understand and adhere to these requirements. This two day seminar will begin with a discussion of Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) test requirements. The instructor will then guide participants through the various cabin interior emergency provisions and their requirements such as supplemental passenger oxygen, emergency equipment, seats, flammability, emergency exits, emergency lighting and escape path markings, and various other cabin interior systems. Additionally, DO-160 environmental, cooling and ventilation requirements will be discussed to provide participants a comprehensive introduction to cabin interior safety and crashworthiness requirements as specified in the CFR Part 25 Airworthiness Standards.

ARP4754A substantially revises the industry guidance for the development of aircraft and aircraft systems while taking into account the overall aircraft operating environment and functions. This development process includes validation of requirements and verification of the design implementation for certification and product assurance. ARP4754A provides the practices for showing compliance with regulations and serves to assist companies in developing and meeting its own internal standards though application of the described guidelines. This two day seminar will provide attendees with an in-depth presentation of the guidelines introduced in the revised recommended practice for aircraft and systems development as well as the critical concepts used in aircraft and systems development processes for certification. The aircraft/systems development process and its interactions with the safety, hardware development and software development processes will be discussed along with the incorporated changes, with special emphasis on new material and development concepts.

This session discusses manufacturing aspects related to unmanned aerial vehicle systems. Full and prototype scales and their testing are considered along with development of the manufacturing tools specific of UAV. Verification of manufacturing methodologies and process capabilities are addresses. Less expensive and faster manufacturing methods using rapid prototyping technology are of interest. This session will also cover other critical aspects related to MAV design including bio-inspired flight mechanics and related aerostructures, miniaturized power and sensor networks, biomimetic aerodynamics, and related MAV control law development.

Unmanned vehicle systems provide a unique environment regarding the integration and incorporation of all of the vehicle systems. There is a need to leverage OA and open interfaces to overcome the problems associated with proprietary robotic system architectures. This session will explore standards and interface specifications that need to be established to achieve modularity, commonality, and interchangeability across the electrical power systems, payloads, control systems, video/audio interfaces, data, and communication links. Standardization will enhance competition, lower life-cycle costs, and provide war fighters with enhanced unmanned capabilities that enable commonality and joint interoperability on the battlefield.

Next gen UCAVs will require flying at supersonic speeds and the utilization of precise defensive systems, resulting in unreasonable bandwidths and near zero latencies making them unfeasible to be tele-operated as the current CONOPS dictates. Looking forward to increased levels of autonomy in Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) operations it becomes apparent that the mission, flight, and ground controls will utilize the emerging paradigm of Intelligent Systems (IS); namely, the ability to learn, adapt, exhibit robustness in uncertain situations, “make sense” of the data collected in real-time and extrapolate when faced with scenarios significantly different from those used in training. LETHA, the Learning Enhanced Tactical Handling Algorithm, was created to develop intelligent managers for these advanced unmanned craft through the novel means of a genetic cascading fuzzy system. In this approach, a genetic algorithm creates rule bases and optimizes membership functions for multiple fuzzy logic systems, whose inputs and outputs feed into one another alongside other crisp data.

This paper presents the definition of a novel system for autonomous landing and docking, which has been conceived and developed inside the MAAT project, to allow an effective control during autonomous docking of cruiser and feeder in movement. In particular, this paper is a fundamental technological spin off the MAAT project. It is a new instrumental system for governing relative positioning between a movable target and air vehicles, such as helicopters, airships and multi-copters. In particular, a short time to market application relates to helicopter equipment (both manned and unmanned) to ensure autonomous landing capability even in case of reduced visibility. The proposed solution is based on infrared emitters allowing controlling both position and jaws angle. It is in advanced testing phase have concluded a preliminary testing phase using a quadcopter which has landed on a small platform mounted on an unmanned with capability of landing also in movement. The proposed solution is an effective alternative to more sophisticated vision based systems, which ensures higher affordability, higher simplicity and reduced costs.

IMA architectures target the reduction of aircraft operation and maintenance costs. They are designed to reduce electronic control unit (ECU) cost, improve the commonality of parts, minimize the number of computing modules, and reduce wiring, the number of connectors and weight. Beyond obvious weight and maintenance complexity reduction benefits, IMA supports design of new integrated functional capabilities which could not be implemented in a federated system. IMA systems consist of DO-254 and DO-178 certifiable components and modules, which can be utilized to design a range of integrated embedded platforms according to DO-297 guidelines. IMA relies on embedded resource sharing which is essential for design of advanced integrated systems, and imposes a significant stress on system architects providing evidence on correct behavior of a huge number of interactions and interfaces in the system. In order to prevent exponential complexity increase for those critical integrated systems, different embedded platform architecture patterns can be applied.

On the software side, the presentation will introduce the transition between DO178B and DO178C documents, and the associated regulation. On the hardware side, clarifications in the DO254 context are still necessary after 10 years of experience and will be highlighted. To deal with those challenges, the Industry created some initiatives in order to identify the practical issues, share experiences and propose ways to solve the issues, in relation with Authorities. Such initiatives, like the DO254 User Group of the Forum of Aeronautical Software, will be introduced as well.
