Introduction to Cyber Security for Commercial Aviation

Despite the advantages of electronic flight bags (EFB), passenger entertainment and email access during flights, and the ability to access aircraft repair manuals electronically, computer interconnectivity throughout aviation has opened the aviation sector to cyber-attacks that could impact flights, data, and safety. This two-day seminar is intended to introduce aviation professionals to the need to implement cyber security throughout commercial aviation including the supply chain.

AS13003 Measurement System Analysis (MSA) Requirements for Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality

AS 13003:2015 stipulates requirements to establish an acceptable measurement system (for variable and attribute features) for use on aerospace engines parts and assemblies.  Measurement Systems Analysis (MSA) is used to evaluate and improve measurement systems in the workplace because it evaluates the test method, measuring instruments, and the process of acquiring measurements. The Aerospace Engine Supplier Quality (AESQ) Strategy Group published AS13003 to define the minimum requirements for conducting MSA for variable attribute assessment on characteristics as defined on the drawing specification.

FAA Part 21 Certification Procedures for Products and Parts

Part 21 is the FAA regulation that provides the regulatory framework to conduct certification of products and parts. This includes the engineering, airworthiness, production and quality systems. The aerospace industry is hinged around compliance with Part 21; however, comprehension of Part 21 and its role in civil certification is challenging. This course is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the processes that encompass aircraft certification, including compliance with FARs, certification procedures and post certification responsibilities.

AS9145 Requirements for Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval

Production and continual improvement of safe and reliable products is key in the aviation, space and defense industries. Customer and regulatory requirements must not only be met, but they are typically expected to exceeded requirements. Due to globalization, the supply chain of this industry has been expanded to countries which were not part of it in the past and has complicated the achievement of requirements compliance and customer satisfaction. The IAQG has established and deployed the AS9145 Standard, as a step to help achieve these objectives.

FBS Decoupling at Suspension Level for Road Noise Applications

With the electrification trend in the automotive industry, the main contributors to in-vehicle noise profile are represented by drivetrain, road and wind noise. To tackle the problem in an early stage, the industry is developing advanced techniques guaranteeing modularity and independent description of each contributor. Component-based Transfer Path Analysis (C-TPA) allows individual characterization of substructures that can be assembled into a virtual vehicle assembly, allowing the manufacturers to switch between different designs, to handle the increased number of vehicle variants and increasing complexity of products. A major challenge in this methodology is to describe the subsystem in its realistic operational boundary conditions and preload. Moreover, to measure such component, it should be free at the connection interfaces, which logically creates significant difficulties to create the required conditions during the test campaign.

Battery Electric Vehicles Energy Consumption Breakdown From On-Road Trips

With zero tailpipe emissions, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) constitute a key solution for decarbonising transport and meeting the ambitious target of zero-greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 as outlined in the European Climate Law of 2021. In recent years, BEVs sales have been spiking up due to a series of favourable factors compared to previous generations: more extensive market offer, wider social acceptance, decreased purchase price, improved performance and, finally, increased range. The latter is a crucial factor the consumers consider when purchasing a BEV, and it largely depends on the way the vehicle is operated (e.g. average speed) and the atmospheric conditions, in addition to its battery size. When driven on the roads, the actual range of BEVs can be significantly smaller than the certified value obtained from laboratory testing at standard conditions.

Medical Cargo Delivery using Blockchain Enabled Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Significant growth of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) has unlocked many services and applications opportunities in the healthcare sector. Aerial transportation of medical cargo delivery can be an effective and alternative way to ground-based transport systems in times of emergency. To improve the security and the trust of such aerial transportation systems, Blockchain can be used as a potential technology to manage, operate and monitor the entire process. In this paper, we present a blockchain network solution based on Ethereum for the transportation of medical cargo such as blood, medicines, vaccines, etc. The smart contract solution developed in solidity language was tested using the Truffle program. Ganache blockchain test network was employed to host the blockchain network and test the operation of the proposed blockchain model. The suitability of the model is validated in real-time using a UAV and all the flight data are captured and uploaded into the blockchain.

Artificial Intelligence in Air Cargo System

Air Cargo is one of the major modes of cargo transportation in the world. It is helping to transport goods swiftly across the globe during emergencies like pandemic, evacuation, and natural calamities etc. It plays a key role in economy of a country by exporting and importing goods across the globe. This business is growing every YOY with increase in demand for e-Commerce and globalization. It is also important to keep up the efficiency of the system as the business demand grows. This paper focuses on Artificial Intelligence (AI) implementation can reduce the inefficiency and inconsistency due to the manual intervention in cargo operation in different areas.

Common Training for DPRV Personnel

Live Online Training Now Available: Important Update to Certification Requirements In response to the current environmental conditions created by COVID-19 and the emergent restrictions on business travel and gatherings, SAE International and the AESQ have launched a live online training program for AS13001: Delegated Product Release Verification Training Requirements to support the Aero Engine Manufacturers requirements for inspector approval. Introduced in June of 2020 in the United States, the live online course will support new and re-certifying delegates with a training option that may be taken outside of a traditional classroom.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene (NBR) Rubber Aromatic Fuel Resistant 75 - 85

This specification covers a nitrile (NBR) rubber in the form of sheet, strip, tubing, extrusions, and molded shapes. Primarily for parts, such as gaskets, diaphragms, bushings, grommets, and sleeves, requiring resistance to aromatic and aliphatic fuels when continuously or alternately exposed to both.

Processes for Application-Specific Qualification of Electrical, Electronic, and Electromechanical Parts and Sub-Assemblies for Use in Aerospace, Defense, and High Performance Systems

This document describes a process for use by ADHP integrators of EEE parts and sub-assemblies (items) that have been targeted for other applications. This document does not describe specific tests to be conducted, sample sizes to be used, nor results to be obtained; instead, it describes a process to define and accomplish application-specific qualification; that provides confidence to both the ADHP integrators, and the integrators’ customers, that the item will performs its function(s) reliably in the ADHP application.
