Unmanned Aerial Systems - Safety, Certifcation and Standards

2018-11-06
UAS integration in non-segregated airspace poses great challenges to UAS community. Since UAS needs to be integrated into an existing system with well-defined standards by civil aviation authorities, the key question is how to develop/implement technology to demonstrate compliances of the regulatory mandates. This session will address the technical challenges to cover aspects of UAS type designs, airworthiness, certifications, safety analyses and risk assessments, and operational requirements.

Unmanned Aerial Systems - Payload Integration/Interfaces/Architectures

2018-11-06
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 payloads, control systems, video/audio interfaces, data, and communication links. Standardization will enhance competition, lower life-cycle costs, and provide war fighters and other customers with enhanced unmanned capabilities that enable commonality and joint interoperability in UAS applications.

Safety Critical COTS Hardware, Fact or Fiction?

2018-11-06
This presentation will discuss the changes in the COTS industry to support systems with DO-254/ED-80 and DO-178C/ED-12C requirements including a revolutionary change from providing hardware to providing complete COTS designs as Intellectual Property (IP) solutions. The presentation will also touch on some of the concerns with certifying with COTS Circuit Board Assemblies. Commercial-Off-The Shelf (COTS) hardware modules have become a staple of modern embedded systems saving integrators time and money over traditional custom-built systems. This is serving the mil/aero industry well since the change from mil-spec started 20 years ago. Now mil/aero requirements are evolving to include DO-254/ED-80 safety requirements for hardware and the COTS industry is in lock-step providing safety certifiable hardware solutions continuing to enable system integrators to provide cost effective solutions.
