VR, COTS, NextGen and SESAR to take center stage at Flight Simulator Engineering and Maintenance Conference

Hundreds of flight simulation experts from aerospace organizations worldwide – including airframe manufacturers, training device manufacturers (TDM), airlines, operators, and suppliers – will convene at RSi Visual Systems in Coppell, Texas, in September for the 2018 Flight Simulator Engineering and Maintenance Conference (FSEMC). Virtual reality (VR), motion cueing, ADS-B, pilot training for NextGen and SESAR, flight simulation training device (FSTD) technology insertion, and the pros and cons of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components top the list of discussion points for the annual conference.

Enabling high-strength composites to reach their full potential

The continued use of composite materials in aerospace has revealed other challenges that need to be addressed while the solutions to material and manufacturing cost are reduced. Before the widespread use of the material in transportation vehicles can be realized, safety challenges surrounding the material must be addressed.

Dassault magnifies focus on its 5X

The debate continues as to where exactly the balance should be between systems that have a high degree of autonomous functionality and the need for pilots to retain a wider 3-D perspective, especially if the computer software is overwhelmed by conflicting data being input from damaged or non-functioning sensors.

MIL-STD-1553 XMC cards

Data Device Corp.’s MIL-STD-1553 XMC cards now include front and rear I/O options, along with air- and conduction-cooled configurations, to support a range of embedded applications.

PEEK wear compounds

The LUVOCOM 8000 series of PEEK wear compounds from Lehvoss North America incorporates proprietary additives that further elevate the wear resistance of PEEK compounds.

Designing quieter aircraft via acoustic simulation

Greater fuel efficiency and low emission requirements have grown into such an urgent imperative in aircraft design that it often overshadows an equally significant factor in air travel—noise. Airbus shows that it’s possible to infuse acoustic simulation into design processes from beginning to end, giving engineers the acoustic simulation intelligence they need to create quieter aircraft, according to Free Field Technologies.

SAE International launches aerospace technology symposium at Japan Aerospace 2018

SAE International, a global association committed to being the ultimate knowledge source for mobility engineering, is bringing together subject-matter experts from across the globe for the first SAE International Aerospace Japan Symposium, held November 29 and 30 in conjunction with Japan International Aerospace Exhibition 2018 at Tokyo Big Sight convention center in Tokyo.

Automation streamlines accreditation to speed aerospace and defense technology deployment

Automated software tools are eliminating weeks, if not months, from the Risk Management Framework (RMF) accreditation process by virtually eliminating the time of the initial hardening while also providing the required documentation. By doing so, technology integrators can significantly reduce the time to build, test, and deploy new technologies in Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG)-compliant environments.
