Course detail: Fundamental Avionics

Description
This course provides a very broad overview of avionics. It covers the historical evolution of the avionics industry and usage of avionics to the present day. You will learn why avionics is what it is today, in addition to understanding how it works. The course covers legacy systems still in use and the latest state-of-the-art systems currently being installed. The avionics environment is an important part of this course. In the context of this course, "environment" refers not only to the physical environment of pressure, temperature, vibration, etc. but the regulatory environment. Systems are an important part of this course, and system communications and assessment are covered. This course introduces you to the unique language of avionics (abbreviations, terms and acronyms) and connects these terms to the systems they represent.

Highlights
  • Provides a comprehensive overview of avionics from the early years to the present
  • Covers the fundamentals of navigation, communications and surveillance
  • Explains the roles of worldwide regulatory and advisory groups
  • Introduces future systems currently under development and equipage
  • Special emphasis on satellite-based navigation, the backbone of future navigation and surveillance
  • Covers safety assessment and human factors as associated with avionics systems

This course is for engineers and technicians involved with avionics but may not have attended formal courses in avionics. It would also suit those who work in a specific area of avionics and who would benefit from learning the latest developments in areas outside of their discipline or a brush-up on basics.
