Abstract:
Emerging microelectronic technologies are expanding functionalities for future decades of vertical lift platforms, enabling both manned and unmanned rotorcraft to fully and safely participate in the NextGen National Airspace System. Specifically, for rotorcraft, benefits from expanded multi-functionality and reduced weight and space requirements, for both mandatory and desired optional avionics, are entering advanced development and flight-testing stages prior to being available to all users. One has only to think about the incredible, multifunctional capabilities of a smartphone to imagine what is possible in avionics with today's advanced technology. This presentation discusses achievements that only a few years ago were beyond imagination - miniaturized avionics that fully employ tiny but powerful digital processors and software defined multi-functional systems on a single chip are rapidly obsoleting the "black boxes" of the past. For both manned and unmanned rotorcraft systems, the benefits must be validated; and when proven valid, are immense in terms of lighter weight, tiny form factors, and lower costs. This presentation also addresses validation of ADS-B2, which depends on verification of GPS signals with technological approaches that counter potential malicious spoofing, jamming and interference.
