The 10th Avionics International Forum (AIF) was successfully held in Shanghai on 22nd-23rd June, attracted 500 guests to participate. About 50 pioneers, academicians and experts in the avionics industry delivered speeches on topics focusing on the development of next-generation avionics technology. Several thematic discussion panels and seminars were set up on the forum to promote the development of avionics industry.
With the development of market demand and technology, the complexity of systems in the aviation industry continues to grow, and supervision is increasingly strengthened. How to address the industrial pain of high cost, high entry barriers and relatively low ROI and build up a more viable, optimal and win-win industrial cooperation structure was discussed attractively. Mr. Wu Qiong, Vice President of AVIAGE SYSTEMS, presented his proposition of "Building an Open-architecture-based Platform Approach of Avionics Ecosystem" at the conference. He believes that based on the advanced and complete modeling and integrated tools chain and DO-297 based IMA computing and networking platform as an ecosystem, the whole industry’s development, integration, verification and certification risks will be further reduced. Therefore, the development cycle time and cost can be lowered. AVIAGE SYSTEMS is willing to work with domestic industrial partners to build the ecosystem together and ultimately bring values to airframers and operators via not only the continuous technology innovation but also the business innovation like the open alliance and customer oriented open applications store, that demonstrated AVIAGE SYSTEMS’ open-minded approach of further localizing and thriving with broader domestic partners and received warm responses from the participants.
The next day, Goldman Zhang, the business development director for consulting services from Product Management of AVIAGE SYSTEMS hosted the professional forum targeting airborne hardware and software and delivered a speech on “The Best Practices of DO-178 Based Airborne Software Certification”. Goldman shared the great experiences AVIAGE SYSTEMS accumulates in the C919 TC support, spanning across system, software and hardware with special highlights on software aspect. In light of all the successful experience, Goldman introduced the new business of consulting service that AVIAGE SYSTEMS is exploring, which is targeting to improve the capability and accelerate the growth of Chinese local Avionics industry.
