AV6006E - Environmental Certification

AV6006E - Environmental Certification


General objective:

This module presents the tests to be carried out in order to obtain the certification of On-Board Systems with respect to the electrical, electromagnetic, Shock, vibration and climatic environments, particularly as described in DO 160 G, which is the reference document.
This course is oriented towards the new conditions dealing with electromagnetic aggressions.
After the course, the student will be able to explain the main standards related to the qualification on-board systems, as prescribed by the DO160 G.

Detailed objectives:

Context, DO160 :
- Reminder of the general context of avionics evolution
- Electromagnetic phenomena
- Civil - military duality : DO 160
