The large-scale integrating project ASHSLEY, co-funded by the European Comission throuhg the FP7 programme, invited António Casimiro to present a talk in their next academic workshop that will take place in Taguspark, Oeiras, Portugal, next November 5th, 2015.
The target audience for this workshop are university students, researchers and members of small and medium enterprises connected to the aviation and aeronautics area.
ASHLEY Project – Avionics Systems Hosted on a distributed modular electronics Large scale dEmonstrator for multiple tYpes of aircraft
The IMA concept proposes an integrated architecture with application software portable across an assembly of common hardware modules. This architectural approach has been developed in the past 20 years and is now implemented in state-of-the art current commercial aircraft (First Generation IMA, or IMA1G).
In search for a more competitive, multiple types of aircrafts, IMA based, avionics platform solution, the European aerospace industry has recently initiated the IMA2G paradigm thanks to the EC funded SCARLETT project.
This latter successfully validated a first underlying set of IMA2G concepts (Separate Core Processing resources from I/O resources, introduce resource segments typology of electronics solutions, provide platform services layer to function supplier etc.), thus creating the expected DME breakthrough to lay IMA2G solid rock foundations.
To make the most of DME potential, ASHLEY will carry out research on top of the existing state-of-the-art and focus on the areas where most innovations are expected.
ASHLEY innovations will be supported by advanced processes, methods and tools for an efficient implementation in the future and validated thanks to the ASHLEY Large Scale aircraft representative Demonstrator.
