AV6008E - Avionics

AV6008E - Avionics


General objective:

The module provides a comprehensive view of avionics systems airworthiness issues as a part of the qualification and certification process of aircraft.
This module presents the evolution of avionic systems architectures over the past thirty years, their main characteristics together with the airworthiness requirements, and focuses on the automatic flight control systems.
After completing this course, the student will be able to
+ Describe the architecture and operations, and explain the airworthiness requirements of the following avionic systems:
- Electrical flight control system
- Flight management system
- Auto-flight system
- CNS systems
- Inertial reference system
+ Describe FMGS A320 operations and ACAS operations
+ Explain particular AFCS topics

Detailed objectives:

Upon completion of this course, the student shall be able to:
- Describe the functional architectures of avionics systems (communication, navigation, surveillance, flight management)
- Identify and describe the certification requirements and cross-compliance demonstration means relevant for avionics systems
- Describe the principles of integrated modular avionics and the related certification approach
- Quote the design and certification issues posed by the new air navigation principles, and the development of the connected aircraft
- Improve, in autonomy, his/her knowledge of the regulatory certification texts applicable to avionics systems.
