2030: AN AVIONICS ODYSSEY
Continued from page 61

Yahav: I believe technology advancements will be the
locomotive to pull regulations forward. Early adopters will
have to provide tangible improvements in safety and show
a significant business case - all will follow and be supported
by regulation changes. I believe the regulatory agencies will
prefer to positively incentivize those who adopt state-of-theart technology rather than mandating it.

Avionics News: What impact do you see urban
transports and UAVs having on the avionics industry?
Schwinn: I think it will be the on-demand mobility
segment. With regard to avionics in these things, I think it will
be a combination of reasonably traditional capabilities - VHF
comm and GPS - along with some new novel stuff - stability
control, power management, things like that. I think this
segment will be the next big boon on the avionics OEM side.
Commercial UAV service in the NAS will move quickly
over the next 10 years. Again, I see the need for avionics
as being less traditional, but you will still need basic
capabilities. One thing we do need is some kind of unified
surveillance plan for UAVs that has to appear. What is
the UAV avoiding the airplane scheme? It's completely
unknown right now. It may be that UAVs always have to get
out of the way of airplanes - but they will need to sense the
airplane - maybe it's some kind of ADS-B. Or maybe it's
specific airspace or routes. I think that's going to happen
quickly.
Carrico: Commercial UAS and UAM platforms
may enable innovative new modes of transportation
and technologies that complement existing intercity
air transportation and extend the benefits of the "third
dimension" (altitude) to intracity transportation. Along with
that comes new approaches to evaluating the safety case
for routine civil airspace access.
We currently support the performance-based evaluation
of our commercial UAS and UAM customers with our
proven, high-performance avionics solutions, as well as
new applications of our capabilities such as our prototype
command non-payload control datalinks, our ground-based
certified FMS and control displays, and WebUAS operations
management tools.
Stone: We're in a hype cycle right now with these new
airborne urban vehicles. It's been dreamed about for 75
years or so, and something may well come of it this time.
Look at the hype around the air taxi/VLJs that happened
some 15 years ago. It may not have been "successful,"
but the hype around it pushed an awful lot of technologies
and there were a lot of beneficiaries from those new
technologies.

So no matter how the UAV/urban mobility programs work
out, there is going to be a lot of money and brainpower
spent on addressing very challenging issues that will bring
all kinds of benefits to other segments of aviation.
Stewart: As the number of vehicles increase,
especially within urban areas, the monitoring and
communication with them will have to go more digital
to handle the increase. This will have an impact on the
communications technologies within the cockpit. Also, with
the increase in vehicles, there will be an additional demand
for pilots or a push for more automation. There are many
discussions about the pilot not needing as much training to
operate these urban mobility vehicles, so this will also push
the avionics to be more simplified to enable the path to full
automation.

Avionics News: How will avionics advancements help
shape the design of next-generation aircraft?
Schwinn: Well, again the No. 1 thing for airplanes is
going to be around new control systems. I think in new light
airplanes, you will see new improved control systems - this
is the way to get the accident rate way down. You've got
envelope protection systems out there like ours that right
now are sort of benign. But I think as time goes on, pilots
and manufacturers will be more comfortable with automated
systems that will be designed to prevent you from doing
something dumb with the airplane.
Because safety is, rightfully so, such a huge issue, if you
build a safer airplane, people will buy it.
With ODM and UAVs, you are going to see automated
control systems that help things fly that you don't think can
fly - although it may happen slowly.
Carrico: We've been doing extensive research with
NASA on their unmanned traffic management program to
develop and certify a command and control data link that
ensures the ability to control UAVs in civil airspace.
We're also developing a next-generation vehicle
management computer that will provide 20 times the
processing power of existing flight control computers, which
will enable fly-by-wire and autonomous flight capabilities.
Stone: It's hard to say at this point. Whether it's for
urban mobility, or UAVs, or just aircraft in general, there's
a big push for sustainable energy - electric or hybrids.
Traditionally, you don't have much avionics integration in
powerplants. But if you are getting into electric power/hybrid
power, it takes a lot more avionics to manage and monitor
those types of systems.
Based on what comes out of this urban mobility hype
cycle, a derivative could be electric-powered manned
aviation, which in turn would drive the development of new
avionics systems to manage it.
