A Step Ahead to the IMA2G



Power Line Communications (PLC) Success Story Presentation

The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU) has successfully demonstrated their Power Line data bUS (PLUS) technology for the ventilation control system in the ASHLEY project. PLUS is a Power Line Communications (PLC) technology dedicated for safety-critical applications. Diehl Aerospace and HSLU are partnering in the development of the PLC technology and have together recently won the 2017 Crystal Cabin Award in the category Cabin Systems. This presentation provides an overview of PLUS and outlines the vision for the further development of the PLC technology.

EEAG Workshop: "Quality and Repeatability in Photonics"

The ASHLEY External Experts Advisory Group (EEAG) Meeting on "Quality and Repeatability in Photonics" was held on the 29th and 30th March 2017 in SINTEF Oslo (Norway) and It was organised by Airbus Operations Ltd, ISQ and SINTEF.

The event saw the participation of 38 experts and leaders in the field of Photonics and Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) coming from 28 institutions and companies from inside and outside the ASHLEY Project consortium. The participants’ background covered a broad spectrum of expertise and sectors, ranging from aeronautics to space, from oil & gas to academic research.

The first day of the meeting was dedicated to the introduction of the key objectives of the meeting and the presentation of the top-level Roadmaps for future adoption of Photonic technologies in harsh environment applications, such as aeronautics and space. The participants were then split in groups to discuss the current status and the key drivers to enhance the manufacturing quality and repeatability of photonics and to allow for a wider deployment in the future.

The second day saw each group presenting the outcomes of their discussion and sharing them with the rest of the audience for further debate. The next steps after the meeting were also presented: the outcomes of the EEAG meeting on “Quality and Repeatability in Photonics” will become an input to the activities undertaken by the ISROS Society (International Society on the Reliability of Optoelectronics for Systems) (http://www.isros.org/). The strong link with ISROS will enable further progress on the subject of the meeting beyond the ASHLEY project.

The ASHLEY EEAG Meeting was an excellent opportunity to initiate a network of expertise around the topic of “Quality and Repeatability in Photonics” and the results of the meeting will be extremely valuable to help shape the next activities and projects related to photonics in the field of IMA and beyond.

International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2017

18 – 23 July 2017
Zhukovsky, Russia

International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS holds one of the leading positions among the world´s largest aviation forums and it is well-deserved.

The main objective of MAKS is to demonstrate achievements of Russian high tech and receptiveness of the domestic Russian market to joint projects with foreign partners. During MAKS, top Russian officials are available for business communication. MAKS offers a unique opportunity to those involved in the aviation and space industry business to get to know the opinion of decision-makers generating decisions on key issues related to the development, production and sale of aviation equipment and weapons. MAKS provides a comprehensive insight into the priorities and achievements of the Russian aerospace industry. Some prototypes of aircrafts and combat systems as well as experimental units that for one reason or another cannot be shown abroad, are demonstrate exclusively at MAKS. MAKS provides a unique opportunity to experts in the field and businessmen for establishing multi-level connections, further developing industrial cooperation and finding new business partners. The key role of the Aviation Salon as a generator of new alliances and productive ideas is recognized worldwide. MAKS is held in Zhukovsky – the town synonymous to the aviation science and technology – at the airfield of the country´s central test base – Gromov Flight Research Institute. Guests of the Salon can familiarize themselves with the biggest Russian scientific, production and experimental hubs located in the close proximity.

CAPPADOCIA (Coordination Action "Pro Production, Avionics, Design" on Cost-efficiency in Aeronautics)

CAPPADOCIA (Coordination Action "Pro Production, Avionics, Design" on Cost-efficiency in Aeronautics) focuses on research activities contributing to the achievements of the SRIA goal of cost efficiency in Aeronautics and Air Transport. This Coordination and Support Action, financed by the European Commission through the 7th Framework Programme, aims at assessing, on the one hand past, on-going and future EC-funded projects focused on cost efficiency; and on the other hand, at identifying existing gaps and bottlenecks within the targeted research landscape, accordingly with the objectives set up in the call addressed. Both activities will lead to the edition of yearly strategic recommendations reports to address the cost efficiency targeted research domains (i.e. Design Systems and Tools, Production, Avionics) in terms of state of the art and impact assessment towards the ACARE goals and solutions achievements. These strategic recommendations will be easily used by research policy makers as well as support the EC in preparation of future Work Programmes (e.g. Horizon 2020).
