Software Distribution and Loading (SDL) Subcommittee Meeting Report. Meeting held May 5, 2021, online meeting.
The AEEC Software Distribution and Loading (SDL) Subcommittee met to discuss airborne software and data management. Current and proposed projects include:
ARINC Project Paper 851: Software Ground Systems for e-Enabled Aircraft
The airlines strongly desire a single unified software management system. Each airframe manufacturer insists on their own brand of system and present a huge problem for the airlines. This project is chartered by APIM 16-015A. The document may be mature in late 2021.
ARINC Project Initiation/Modifications (APIM)
The group briefly revisited two proposed industry projects
All APIMs were supported by the meeting participants.
The next SDL Subcommittee meeting is scheduled for June 9, 2021. Details for future meetings for each of these topics can be found on the SDL Webpage.
