SAE 2014 Aerospace Systems and Technology Conference

Technical Session Schedule

Thursday, September 25

Integrated Systems - Unmanned Vehicle Power and Avionics Systems, Controls and Payloads
(Session Code: ASTC109)

Room Buckeye A  10:30 a.m.

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.
