Aviation Electronics Europe to look at latest and future cockpit technologies

With the global market for commercial avionics equipment set to grow at an annual rate of 4.8 percent through to 2019, the industry has not been this buoyant for some time, setting the scene for some active discussions at Aviation Electronics Europe on the future policies, performances and innovations in the aviation electronics and avionics sector.

With industry forecasts $21 billion will be spent on commercial avionics systems for fixed-wing commercial aircraft in 2015, and an order backlog of aircraft, the future for the aviation electronics and avionics industry is looking healthy, as the global economic recovery continues to strengthen.

But as more aircraft are set to take to the skies, it becomes increasingly important for the management of the airspace to continue to improve safety and reliability to accommodate the greater number of aircraft, including military and UAVs.

Aviation Electronics Europe will not simply look at the latest and future for cockpit technologies, where airlines aim to deliver the most up-to-date and efficient systems for their pilots and the safety of passengers, but also updates on the Single European Skies initiative, which enters its third and final phase.

The ‘Deploying SESAR’ session explores the current and future positions for SESAR through to 2020, the main operational challenges and the technical enablers for SES deployment from the commercial airline and business jet perspectives. Speakers from key organisations, including SESARJU, EUROCONTROL and Airbus, involved in the deployment will deliver informative updates on the future for SESAR.

An exciting panel discussion on the ‘Impact of Performance Based Navigation from Alternate Perspectives’ the panelists will look at the impact PBN will have on airpsace from the different perspectives, from the airline to the FSM supplier. Developed by ICAO, Performance Based Navigation (PBN) is an essential component of delivering the objectives underpinning the Future Airspace Strategy and consequential modernisation of the airspace . PBN provides the opportunity for a significant airspace re-design as future navigation developments, such as three-dimensional (3D) and four -dimensional (4D) user preferred trajectories, evolve.
