Abstract:

The emphasis in this Volume is on the certification of advanced technology digital avionic systems, as well as their validation. This document covers detailed technical topics such as latent faults digital data busses for aviation applications integrated assurance assessment analytical sensor redundancy and protection against lightning electromagnetic interference, and high energy radio frequency fields. These topics are covered in detail to familiarize the certification engineer with the issues involved in implementing the new technologies. Covered are topics that will enable the certification engineer to understand the information presented in type certification and supplemental type certification documentation, to understand variations in the implementation of technologies, and to discuss them with the design engineer. Also addresses are some of the soon-to-be-available technologies in the Advanced Validation Issues chapter. The direction of aviation research in the United States is discussed along with challenges and problems that confront the certification engineer in certifying the new technologies. Keywords Digital flight control systems Fault tolerant software Electrical transients in aircraft Electromechanical aviator systems.
