Course detail: Aircraft Avionics Test and Evaluation Fundamentals

Description
This course provides an overview of basic avionics systems flight test to include the understanding of test planning and risk management, as well as the necessity and complexity of flight test instrumentation and data collection. Students will understand the challenges of testing integrated systems, as well as understanding the importance of time, space and position information (TSPI), sources of TSPI and its use for data acquisition, reduction and analysis. They will review causes and methods of testing software and for identifying electromagnetic interference. Students will also receive a basic understanding of aerospace data bus architectures, communications and radio navigation systems, Global Navigation Satellite Systems, RADAR systems and electro-optical and infrared systems to help understand required flight test techniques. Students will also gain understanding in the challenges of human-machine interfaces which require crew station and workload evaluations as part of the aircraft and systems certification process.

Who Should Attend?
Flight test engineers and managers, instrumentation engineers and project/program managers new the area of aircraft avionics flight test. The course also offers an opportunity for those who have been out of flight test to refresh their knowledge. It is also applicable to aerospace industry electronics and avionics suppliers and manufacturers of unmanned air systems interested in how their products will be flight tested to meet specifications and user requirements. It is applicable to military and civilian organizations alike and has no prerequisites. Attendees should have a basic knowledge of college mathematics.
