  • May 09 - 12, 2022
    Memphis, Tennessee
    One Great Venue, Two Conferences.

    The Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) General Session and Aviation Maintenance Conference (AMC) join together in one location to bring together industry experts from around the world. The AEEC General Session and AMC provide opportunities to explore common issues and advancements in the industry through discussion and technical symposiums, and direct focus on the advancement of technical standards and committee and working group activities under the auspices of the AEEC and AMC. 

    The AEEC General Session is an important event on the AEEC calendar. The AEEC General Session marks the culmination of the years' standards development work. New ARINC Standards are discussed and approved at this meeting. Additionally, the AEEC initiates the work program and schedule for the coming year. The AEEC General Session is an ideal opportunity for aviation industry professionals to obtain an overview of the important technical developments in air transport avionics and other aircraft electronics.

    The objectives of AMC are to promote reliability and to reduce operating and life cycle costs of air transport components by improving maintenance and support techniques through the exchange of technical information. 

  • AEEC
    Jun 01 - 03, 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.

  • AEEC, Cockpit Display Systems (CDS) Subcommittee
    Jun 13 - 16, 2022
    Seattle, Washington

    The Cockpit Display Systems (CDS) Subcommittee develops ARINC 661, Cockpit Display System Interfaces to User Systems. It is being expanded to meet OEM requirements for new aircraft. ARINC 661 defines a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to displays. It also defines GUI objects. ARINC 661 enables flight crews to interact with the CDS using a cursor control device. This guidance and requirements are documented in ARINC Specification 661: Cockpit Display System Interfaces to User Systems, Part 1, Avionics Interfaces, Basic Symbology, and Behavior and ARINC Project Paper 661: Cockpit Display System Interfaces to User Systems, Part 2, User Interface Markup Language (UIML) for Graphical User Interfaces. This activity is authorized by APIM 19-010A.

  • AEEC, Systems Architecture and Interfaces (SAI) Subcommittee
    Jun 16, 2022
    Virtual Meeting

    The Systems Architecture and Interfaces (SAI) Subcommittee will discuss avionics system-level guidelines intended for new airplanes and major retrofit programs. It will discuss emerging Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS) equipment.

  • AEEC, Network Infrastructure and Security (NIS) Subcommittee
    Jun 21 - 23, 2022
    Virtual Meeting

    The goal of this activity is to develop standards for IP connectivity and security to the aircraft that enables fleet-wide solutions based on open standards. The expected benefit is lower development cost, increased flexibility, higher reliability, reduced complexity, longer lifespan, and ease of configurability and maintenance.

  • AEEC, Ku/Ka Band Satellite (KSAT) Subcommittee
    Jun 21 - 23, 2022
    Seattle, Washington

    The AEEC KSAT Subcommittee develops Standards that define Ku-band and Ka-band satellite communication (satcom) systems that meet operators’ highperformance requirements. The equipment specified are typically used to provide passenger data, video, and voice communication services.

  • AEEC, Software Distribution and Loading (SDL) Subcommittee
    Jun 29, 2022
    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. 

  • AEEC, Avionics Application/Executive (APEX) Software Subcommittee
    Jun 30, 2022
    Virtual Meeting

    The APEX Subcommittee develops avionics software interface standards for Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) used with Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA). The expected benefit is to improve avionics software development, integration, and engineering life cycle. This guidance and requirements are documented in ARINC Specification 653: Avionics Application Software Standard Interface.
