Airlines to Establish New ARINC Standards at the AEEC General Session (ARINC IA is a program of SAE ITC)

Aviation industry professionals will convene at the Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) General Session to be held April 29 to May 2, 2019 at the Hilton Prague, Czech Republic. Participants will include airlines, airframe manufacturers, avionic suppliers, communication service providers, and many others. The AEEC agenda will feature top technical speakers from around the world. Technical symposium topics include:
  • Big Data in Aviation
  • Global Aircraft Tracking
  • Airport Approach and Landing
  • Topics Trending in Aviation
The AEEC works in concert with airframe manufacturers and avionic suppliers to develop the ARINC Standards used in new aircraft development programs and major retrofit programs. This includes avionics equipment and services to support emerging airspace environments, namely NextGen, SESAR, and CARATS. Today, nearly all commercial and regional aircraft around the world rely on avionics equipment based on the ARINC Standards developed and approved by the AEEC.
The AEEC is on track to approve several new ARINC Standards in Prague intended for Global Aircraft Tracking Systems, Interactive Cockpit Displays, Real-Time Computer Operating Systems and Cabin Systems. When approved, these standards will be used to develop avionics equipment that will positively contribute to safe and efficient air transport. The ARINC Standards are used as the basis for design, development, investment, acquisition, life-cycle support, and other business decisions.
ARINC Standards describe avionic systems, cabin systems, information systems, and associated interfaces used by more than 30,000 air transport and business aircraft worldwide. There are three classes of ARINC Standards:
  • ARINC Characteristics: Define the traditional form, fit, function, and interfaces to avionics equipment and associated networks.
  • ARINC Specifications: Define the avionics infrastructure including software operating systems interfaces, electrical interfaces, data buses, physical packaging of avionics equipment, communication, networking, and data security standards.
  • ARINC Reports: Provide guidelines or general information found by the aviation industry to be preferred practices, often related to avionics maintenance, product support, and flight simulator engineering and maintenance. The AEEC General Session is co-located with the Avionics Maintenance Conference.
