Avionics are the electronic systems used on aircraft . Avionic systems include communications, navigation , the display and management of multiple systems , and the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to perform individual functions.
The global aircraft avionics computer market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
HENSOLDT introduces a new generation of avionics computers under the “CAVION” brand name. As a sensor and avionics solutions provider, HENSOLDT is introducing the “CAVION” family of avionics computers, which significantly boost the performance of current computers for mission control on board flying platforms of all kinds.
“CAVION” is based on a HENSOLDT proprietary electronic module development that enables the use of multi-core processors even in safety-critical. The “CAVION” family of avionics computers utilize new and specially constructed multi-core processing boards from HENSOLDT, making them substantially more powerful than the previous generation of avionics computers, where a strong emphasis was placed on certifiability.
The “CAVION” series of products includes mission computers for law enforcement and rescue missions as well as a variety of modular configurations for flight control of the appropriate aircraft.
A brand-new, cutting-edge avionics computer designed especially for industrial and commercial unmanned vehicles has been released by GE Aviation. This revolutionary computer has an open architecture concept that combines advanced mission processing and vehicle control into a small, lightweight form.
An inertial/GPS package, software defined radio, datalink, and an optional solid-state storage device are also embedded in the new computer in addition to the computing capability needed for mission operations including sensor processing at the edge and hosting autonomy-enabling algorithms.
The system combines the functionality often given by up to six different electronic devices into a single package, reducing weight, power consumption, and cost while still satisfying the customers’ criteria for security, exportability, durability, and processing.
A wide new family of rugged avionics computers pre-integrated with safety-certifiable OpenVPX modules has been introduced by Curtiss-Defense Wright’s Solutions division, a pioneer in the development of COTS-based modular solutions for DO-254/DO-178 (with available certification artifacts up to DAL A for a wide variety of applications) safety certifiable systems.
Including single board computers (SBC), graphics controllers, and avionics I/O cards, the new SPIRIT Safety Certifiable System family offers a wide variety of field-proven tough chassis (2-6 3U OpenVPX slots) pre-integrated with safety certifiable modules. The full spectrum of aircraft avionics computer I/O interfaces, Power Architecture, ARM, or Intel-based SBCs, and AMD graphics are available as performance choices.
These ITAR-free devices are made to be compatible with FACE (Future Airborne Capability Environment) software and make the deployment of crucial airborne applications more simple and quick all around the world. Additionally, Curtiss-Wright is working with top suppliers of avionics solutions to supply SPIRIT system versions that have been completely customized for a particular application.
For critical applications like mission computers, UAV ground stations, DVE systems, flight control computers, and display computers on manned and unmanned fixed-wing and rotary aircraft, these cutting-edge solutions are ideal for saving valuable program time, reducing cost, and mitigating integration risk.
The SPIRIT Centrion Safety Certifiable Mission Computer System, a fully integrated Situational Awareness system that includes DO-178C/ED-12C safety certifiable digital mapping, tactical information, and Synthetic Vision System (SVS) applications running on a DO-254/ED-80 safety certifiable mission computer, is the first member of the SPIRIT system family to be publicly announced.
The SPIRIT Centurion, which was created in partnership with HENSOLDT, is contained in a tough ARINC 600 container and is built of reusable Curtiss-Wright VPX3-150 and VPX3-1258 SBCs, VPX3-718 Graphics, and VPX3-611 I/O Cards. The discrete AMD Embedded RadeonTM high-performance GPU for 4k video output is also included, along with the Core Avionics & Industrial Inc. (CoreAVI) OpenGL SC 1.0.1 graphics library suite. In terms of software, Wind River VxWorks 653 RTOS is supported.
The Defense Solutions division, “The new SPIRIT family of pre-qualified aircraft avionics computer, the industry’s most comprehensive and flexible solutions for architecting mission-critical airborne applications, will help meet the increasing demand they’re seeing for cost-effective, dependable avionics solutions that support DO-254 and DO-178C safety-certifiability.”
Unlike ‘one-size-fits-all’ alternatives, our broad selection of rugged, field-proven chassis offers system integrators the flexibility they need to design their special airborne mission computer solution. Additionally, as they expand their partnership with top avionics software suppliers and introduce additional modular building blocks to the SPIRIT family of systems, their already expansive line of safety-certifiable products will continue to expand.
Rugged SBCs, avionics I/O, and graphics modules from Curtiss-Wright are intended for use in aerospace and defense systems with limited space, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). Critical manned and unmanned airborne Safety-Certifiable systems can be deployed and certified much more quickly with the use of these safety-certifiable cards.
By removing software from outdated communications, navigation, and surveillance hardware and transferring it to contemporary embedded computing architectures, a new partnership between Northrop Grumman and Curtiss Wright aims to virtualize outdated military avionics systems.
This effectively means that the legacy code or software that an aircraft pilot might see as a flight path indicator on a primary flight display can be extracted from the display and the display’s embedded computing platform once the hardware becomes obsolete and transferred to run on a newer, leaner, smarter display and faster newer processor that will allow the avionics application developer to make the flight path indicator appear or function.
In order to increase the capabilities and services available to system designers creating commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based DO-254 airborne electronic hardware (AEH) and DO-178B/C software-based safety-certifiable avionics solutions, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions and Mannarino Systems & Software have formed a strategic partnership.
In order to improve the situational awareness of general aviation pilots and promote unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) safety, Becker Avionics, a 65-year industry veteran and supplier that collaborates with the top 20 aerospace OEMs, and Iris Automation have partnered.
The two businesses will work together to create an optional safety-enhancing equipment system that can identify and alert pilots to adjacent, potentially dangerous planes.
To “see” when another aircraft is coming from beyond the pilot’s field of view and poses a risk to the equipped aircraft, the Iris Automation and Becker Avionics collision avoidance safety system will employ computer vision and machine learning to issue 3D audio alerts.
