  • AEEC, Software Metrics Working Group
    Jan 16 - 18, 2018
    Cocoa Beach, Florida

    The Software Metrics Working Group will discuss avionics problem reports and software reliability metrics for avionics systems and software. The goal is to define measurable parameters that can be used to improve the reliability and overall performance of avionics systems. This is inclusive of software used in Aircraft Control (AC), Airline Information Systems (AIS), and Passenger Information and Entertainment Systems (PIES) domains.

  • Fiber Optics Subcommittee (FOS)
    Jan 23 - 25, 2018
    Fort Worth, Texas

    The Fiber Optics Subcommittee (FOS) will meet to continue the development of ARINC Fiber Optic Standards used in air transport aircraft and other aircraft with similar requirements. The subcommittee’s current work projects include documenting Mechanical Transfer (MT) technology in airborne fiber optics. This project is intended for future aircraft programs as well as the retrofit of existing airframes. Applications for this technology include avionics, in-flight entertainment systems, and other uses.

  • FSEMC, FSEMC Data Document (FDD) Working Group
    Jan 23 - 25, 2018
    Cocoa Beach, Florida

    The FDD Working Group will continue the comprehensive review of ARINC Specification 450: Flight Simulator Design and Performance Data Requirements, which covers all the data needed to develop and validate the FSTD simulation models: fix wing and rotary wing.

  • AEEC, Global Aircraft Tracking (GAT) Working Group
    Feb 06 - 07, 2018
    Coral Gables, Florida

    The AEEC has formed the Global Aircraft Tracking (GAT) Working Group to prepare standards applicable to the ICAO Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADDS).

  • AEEC, Systems Architecture and Interfaces (SAI) Subcommittee
    Feb 08 - 09, 2018
    Coral Gables, Florida

    The Systems Architecture and Interfaces (SAI) Subcommittee will prepare avionics system-level guidance for new airplanes and major retrofit programs. It will discuss NextGen and SESAR programs and the impact on Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS) equipment.

  • AEEC, Data Link (DLK) Users Forum
    Feb 13 - 14, 2018
    Miami, Florida

    Some of the issues to be addressed at the Data Link Users Forum are: 

    • Coordination among airlines, FAA, UK NATS, and other CAAs on evolving ATS datalink programs. 
    • Continue to work on the evolution to Satellite and other high-speed (IP-based) air-ground links. 
    • Review datalink equipage issues, mandates, and advancing datalink applications. 
    • Monitor the development of VDL Mode 2, CPDLC, in Europe and the USA.


  • AEEC, Cabin Systems Subcommittee (CSS)
    Feb 20 - 22, 2018
    Cocoa Beach, Florida

    The scope of the activity is to develop standard interfaces that will provide airlines with freedom of choice in the installation and expansion of cabin equipment. Cabin telecommunications, cabin networks, interface protocols, and connector standardization are also a part of this activity.

  • AMC, Test Program Set (TPS) Quality Working Group
    Feb 27 - 01, 2018
    Schiphol East, Netherlands

    Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) often deliver a Technical Support and Data Package (TSDP) that contains a cornucopia of documents. The relevant Test Specification data is obscured and difficult to ascertain within the large amount of data that is not relevant to the Test Specification.

    The aim of this project is to update ARINC Report 625-3 to emphasize the importance that the OEM provides a Test Specification that is intelligible, unobscured, and complete as possible.

  • AEEC, Air-Ground Communications System (AGCS) Subcommittee
    Feb 27 - 01, 2018
    Cape Town, South Africa

    The purpose of this activity is to develop ARINC Installation Standards for Low-Earth and Geostationary Orbiting Aviation Satellite Communication Systems capable of air-to-ground and ground-to-air broadband mobility service while satisfying the requirements to support Air Traffic Services (ATS) and Aeronautical Operational Control (AOC) communications.
