Hardware/Software Reuse Solutions for Modern Avionics Systems

Start Date:4/1/2020

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


Modern and future avionics systems for commercial and military applications are based on open architectures and will be leveraging reuse of hardware and software elements via common interfaces for hardware and common application programming interfaces (APIs) for software. Driving this trend are Initiatives borne out of the U.S. Department of Defense such as the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) for software, the Hardware Open Systems Technologies (HOST) and Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) for hardware. This webcast of industry experts will detail how these reuse initiatives can benefit avionics systems from a hardware and software perspective, reducing long-term life cycle costs and speeding up technology insertion.
