• Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Subcommittee
    Jul 27 - 29, 2021
    Virtual Meeting

    The EFB Subcommittee develops ARINC Standards that enable standardized EFB installation, connectivity, and interoperability on all types of aircraft. The standards are comprised of both hardware and software specifications and apply to interfaces, wiring and connectors, protocols, and application control.

  • Software Distribution and Loading (SDL) Subcommittee
    Jul 28, 2021
    Virtual Meeting

    The SDL Subcommittee’s objective is to develop standards for software distribution and loading. This includes continued development of high-speed data loaders, high-density storage media, and loading protocols. The SDL Subcommittee prepares and updates standards for file format, media type, part numbering, distribution, and terminology.

    This subcommittee also defines the interfaces between the software data loader and the target hardware. The SDL Subcommittee sets standard formats for Loadable Software Parts (LSPs) so that all the requirements of configuration management of LSPs may be accomplished.

    Oct 12 - 20, 2021
    Virtual Meeting

    The FSEMC Program is organized into two major sections. The general section contains the information that you need to get the most benefit from this unique aviation meeting. The FSEMC Discussion Items by Topic—the most important part of the program — presents Discussion Items and follow-up items submitted by the simulator users and suppliers that will be discussed at the FSEMC.

  • AEEC
    May 24 - 26, 2022
    Annapolis, Maryland

    The EFB Users Forum is a joint activity with IATA that enables airlines and other aircraft operators to state their preferences in the evolution of EFB hardware, software applications, and connectivity to the ground. This ensure operational benefit to the flight deck crew and the economic benefit to the airlines. Flight Operations, Information Technology, Engineering, and Maintenance disciplines are represented among the participants of the EFB Users Forum.
