MUNICH, 11 Jan. 2013. Dr. Mirko Jakovljevic of TTTech in Vienna, Austria, will present a paper, entitled “Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) and Advanced System Integration for Future Aerospace Systems,” during Avionics Europe 2013.
New, advanced integrated architectures and IMA can be designed to reduce electronic control unit (ECU) cost, minimize the number of control units, and minimize wiring and weight, says Dr. Jakovljevic. Higher levels of functional integration enable system optimization and improved aircraft performance, but may also add more effort in system integration.
Advanced system integration, as the lowest (networking) platform layer, plays essential role in the process of IMA platform design. Minor differences in capabilities at this level can significantly influence the complete system architecture and lifecycle. For example, says Dr. Jakovljevic, “time-triggered networking capabilities can have far-reaching consequences on embedded system virtualization and the optimization of avionics architectures.”
Advanced system integration based on ARINC664 can help to design open IMA architectures, and SWaP-optimized rotorcraft and aircraft systems. In his paper, Dr. Jakovljevic will discuss how time-triggered capabilities implanted on standard ARINC664 (AFDX) networks contribute to design of fault-tolerant distributed embedded computing platforms.
Dr. Mirko Jakovljevic specializes in advanced integrated systems, distributed embedded platforms for time-, safety-, and mission-critical applications, system design methodology, certification, complexity management, and standardization of new technologies in the aerospace domain.
