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.

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.

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.

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines the testing methods for all aerospace optic cables. The application of the test methods are defined in the slant sheets. Technical, dimensional, mechanical and operating performance requirements for the associated aerospace fiber optic cables are detailed in the applicable specification slant sheet. In the event of conflict between this standard and the slant sheet, the slant sheet shall take precedence.

This document defines a set of standard application layer interfaces called JAUS Unmanned Ground Vehicle Services. JAUS Services provide the means for software entities in an unmanned system or system of unmanned systems to communicate and coordinate their activities. The Unmanned Ground Vehicle Services represent the platform-specific capabilities commonly found in UGVs, and augment the Mobilty Service Set [AS6009] which is platform-agnostic. At present ten (10) services are defined in this document.

The SAE Aerospace Information Report AIR5315 – Generic Open Architecture (GOA) defines “a framework to identify interface classes for applying open systems to the design of a specific hardware/software system.” [sae] JAUS Service (Interface) Definition Language defines an XML schema for the interface definition of services at the Class 4L, or Application Layer, and Class 3L, or System Services Layer, of the Generic Open Architecture stack (See Figure 1 below). The specification of JAUS services shall be defined according to the JAUS Service (Interface) Definition Language document.
