The Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) is hosting a general session May 1 to 4, AEEC said. At the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, the session is also set to establish new ARINC standards. AEEC subcommittees have developed a range of avionics and infrastructure standards for new aircraft and major derivative programs. This year, the AEEC said 11 technical standards are on its docket for adoption.
The AEEC expects more than 650 technical and management professionals from more than 30 countries, 30 airlines, five airframe manufacturers and more than 170 avionics suppliers to be in attendance. The meeting is to feature speakers discussing topics including global aircraft tracking, communication systems and wireless airplane networks, among others.
“The AEEC works in concert with airframe manufacturers and avionic suppliers to develop the ‘ARINC Standards’ used in new aircraft development programs, major retrofit programs, for incorporating new and evolving information technology, cybersecurity and to meet regulatory requirements,” the AEEC said. “This includes systems and services for NextGen, SESAR, and CARATS airspace improvement initiatives. Today, nearly all commercial and regional aircraft around the world rely on avionics equipment based on the consensus-based standards developed and approved by the AEEC.”
