Vehicle Crash Reconstruction Principles and Technology

Crash reconstruction is a scientific process that utilizes principles of physics and empirical data to analyze the physical, electronic, video, audio, and testimonial evidence from a crash to determine how and why the crash occurred. This course will introduce this reconstruction process as it gets applied to various crash types - in-line and intersection collisions, pedestrian collisions, motorcycle crashes, rollover crashes, and heavy truck crashes. Methods of evidence documentation will be covered. Analysis methods will also be presented for electronic data from event data recorders and for video.

Standard Approach to Identifying and Defining Functions for Systems Development and Safety Assessments

2022-03-08
2022-01-0008
The Safety Assessment Process, defined by SAE ARP 4761, associated regulatory guidance, and the system development process defined by SAE ARP 4754 are built on an understanding of the functions performed by a system or systems. These recommended practices do not provide, or reference, specific guidance regarding function definition, though they do provide some conventional airplane examples. The function is central to the entire development effort, and it is essential that the functions be identified and described such that the development and safety assessment processes can be applied consistently throughout the development program, and beyond. Without a systematic process for establishing and describing functions, the application of the development and safety assessment processes can be complicated by overly inclusive functions and functions applied at the wrong level of abstraction.

Achieving compliance with RTCA DO-254/EUROCAE ED-80 Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware: Quality Management Perspective

2022-03-08
2022-01-0007
RTCA DO-254/ED-80 “Design Assurance Guidance for Airborne Electronic Hardware” is a widely accepted industry standard to ensure safety in avionics hardware. FAA and EASA have recognized DO-254 as an acceptable means of compliance with the applicable airworthiness regulations for the electronic hardware. While microprocessor based complex hardware utilization in safety critical avionic hardware are increasing, and DO-254 compliance is mandated by the certification authorities, development of DO-254 compliant or safety certifiable hardware is becoming more and more important and provides competitive advantage in the industry. The avionics manufacturers need to correlate their existing processes and procedures with DO-254 in order to satisfy DO-254 objectives in their own quality management system structure, which may be challenging and tricky.

Development of Prototype of Autonomous Vehicle

2022-03-08
2022-01-0024
An increase in usage of autonomous technology has reduced the number of road accidents and industrial hazards while increasing productivity in industries. The concept of autonomous vehicle if introduced in airport can decrease departure delays caused by human error. The concept of automating an aircraft tug/tows can impart smooth functioning of towing aircraft at busy airports from taxi area to runway. The autonomous tug can plan its route according to the traffic at certain areas using Lidar data and GPS. The tug can use record and play method i.e for an initial period of 1 month the tug shall record data of all possible drop and pickup points which consist of distance covered from point A to point B, steering angles, Lidar maps, speed and other relevant data. After data acquisition, a data cleaning algorithm can be launched which will take the best path criteria’s for a particular point, after which data can be uploaded into the tug.

Information Retrieval for Aviation Applications

2022-03-08
2022-01-0044
There is a recurring need for automatic Information Retrieval (IR) from quality documents, price tags, part markings, receipts, purchase orders and technical manuals - which are otherwise non-parsable. IR coupled with search functionalities has a wide range of applications from warehouses, shop floors, marketplaces to even cockpits in the aviation sector. It helps in semi-automating workflows like document reviews, quality checks, collaborative Q&As and contextual extraction of information. These workflows make laborious tasks more intuitive and easier, thereby reducing the workload of the engineers using them. The paper describes an AI based IR platform which caters to the aforesaid scenarios in a scalable manner and integrates seamlessly with similar problems across different domains.

Derivation of a Theoretical Reactionless Drive, Using the Abraham-Lorentz force

2022-03-08
2022-01-0054
By using the Abraham-lorenz force, a theoretical and practical thruster can be theoretically derived and practically constructed. This paper will briefly review the idea of a reactionless drive, and some other theoretical proposals. It will then analytically derive a reactionless drive based on a specific application of the Abraham Lorenz force. It will present simulated data on such a drive and discuss its key characteristics. Finally it will analyze the supposed violation of momentum and thermodynamics which should occur with this scheme and a bench top working model of the theoretical drive derived in this paper will be presented as well as videos which show the drive in practice which can be seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QX6_fSVnu4E, demonstrating the first reactionless propulsion system which is visible to the naked eye in the history of engineering

Best Practices in Establishing Business Case for Implementing Blockchain Solution in Aerospace

2022-03-08
2022-01-0002
The aircraft asset life cycle processes are rapidly being digitalized. Many novel ways of recording these electronic transactions are being emerged. One such technology for recording electronic transactions securely is Blockchain, defined as distributed ledger technologies which includes enterprise blockchain. Blockchain is not widely used in the aerospace industry due to lack of technical understanding and questions about its benefits. Assessment and establishment of business case for implementing blockchain based solution is needed. The aerospace industry is very conservative when it comes to technology adoption and hence it is difficult to change legacy processes. Additionally, the industry is very fragmented. The technology is advancing at a faster rate and applies across geographies under various regulatory oversight which makes blockchain based solution implementation challenging.

AS9100D Internal Auditor Training

Internal audits (a requirement of the AS9100 Rev D Standard) are intended to verify the compliance and effectiveness of the organization's quality management system. Internal auditors must be knowledgeable of these requirements and the expectations as identified in the standard. In addition, the audit requirements outlined in the AS9101 Standard have significantly changed the way auditors are expected to conduct audits in the aviation, space and defense industries.
