The editors of Military & Aerospace Electronics are launching a Website called Avionics Intelligence to provide comprehensive news, industry analysis, and feature coverage of civil and military aircraft cockpit electronics, aviation navigation and guidance, air traffic control, in-flight entertainment systems, and advanced communications.
Avionics Intelligence, which is online at www.avionics-intelligence.com, covers issues facing avionics suppliers and integrators worldwide such as obsolescence challenges in commercial and military aircraft retrofits, air traffic control upgrades, electronic flight bag design, runway incursion, avionics for spacecraft and unmanned aerial vehicles, certification for FAA hardware and software standards, and test and measurement of avionics systems.
Avionics Intelligence is for program and project managers, engineering managers, engineers, and commercial and military aerospace executives who are involved in avionics integration, manufacture, design, and technology standards development.
News, analysis, and in-depth features revolve around two primary aviation community topics: the business of avionics, and the technology of avionics. Periodic guest columns and blogs eventually will be included from influential avionics technology leaders and industry suppliers.
Readers can expect to see contract awards and contract opportunities involving avionics for the military, commercial aviation, and general aviation. Primary emphasis will be on the difficult business, technology, and regulatory tasks of integrating unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) into commercial air space.
Also receiving close scrutiny is free-flight aircraft navigation, which uses the satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS) to enable aircraft to fly directly to their destinations, rather than following so-called victor airways and RF direction headings from the nation's outdated network of VHF Omnirange (VOR) beacons.
Other important topics involve aircraft sensors, cockpit displays, avionics databuses, automated weather information distribution, electronic charts and maps, synthetic vision for bad weather conditions, automated text-based clearance, ground control, and weather briefings, automated aircraft traffic collision and avoidance, and satellite-based precision approach and landing systems.
If you're an avionics designer, avionics buyer, government regulator, or simply an aviation technology buff, then Avionics Intelligence is for you. Surf on over to www.avionics-intelligence.com and see the Website for yourself.
