Avionics Technology Training: The term avionics is a blend of the words aviation and electronics.

Avionics are the electronic systems used on aircraft, artificial satellites, and spacecraft. Avionic systems include communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to perform individual functions.

The aviation industry has always been a leader in technological advancements such as the way parts are transported, planes are built and aircraft are maintained. The global explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT) has advanced avionics even further. In fact, this area is so important that it’s often referred to as the Internet of Aircraft Things.

For example, the IoT is making aviation safer and more affordable. Avionic systems from fighter jets to commuter jets now collect data and distribute it for overall efficiency. IoT data collected from a jet engine for instance feeds a predictive AI (Artificial Intelligence), which forecasts the demands of the engine to adjust thrust levels, leading to a 10 – 15 percent reduction in fuel, plus reduced emissions and engine noise.

Another way the IoT is improving avionics and complimenting bottom lines stems from how performance data can now be delivered in real time. This means engineers and designers of avionics engine technology can make adjustments quickly to how aircraft are flown, which reduces grounding incidence.

Long-term maintenance contracts can be offered at a lower cost because issues are immediately transmitted to ground crews, reducing the time spent diagnosing issues and getting aircraft back in flight.

Statistics show that a grounded A380 Airbus costs, on average, upward of $1.2 million per day. Getting the aircraft back in the air is critical to a company’s profit structure. With IoT sensors to monitor engine performance from thousands of angles, maintenance times can be reduced and solutions implemented the moment the craft hits the ground, making flight safer, more predictable and far less costly.

Also consider that traditional avionics systems transfer data up to a maximum of 12.5KB/s whereas Boeing 787s and A350s are using Ethernet-based, next-generation aircraft data networks (AFDX) that allow up to 12.5MB/s.

This makes it quicker and easier to transmit information via avionics systems to the maintenance teams on the ground. This can include updates about current flying conditions and any faults that have occurred during the flight.
