The main themes of the wide ranging international conference - the 1993 Avionics Conference and Exhibition - were the strategies being adopted in the development and procurement of avionic systems, the benefits of commonality and technology re-use, the enabling technologies and emerging areas, the development of integrated architectures, including modular avionics and the future development of the industry. After an opening address on integrated avionics, the papers under "Strategies" discussed the airline wish-list, the military strategy and an airframe manufacturer's viewpoint. "Civil and military commonality" covered differences between civil and military electronic flight control systems and electrical flight controls - from Airbus A320/330/340 to future military transport aircraft. "Technology re-use" examined open systems architecture for Department of Defense avionics, physics-of-failure-based computer tools for the design of microelectronic packages, digital avionics and commercial devices, and applications based on the simultaneous use of GNSS and mode S. "Enabling technologies" looked at real-time Ada applications with silicon executives, redundant discrete interface devices and integrated millimetre-wave sensors. "Emerging systems" dealt with the British Army attack helicopter - software support, EFA modular computer concept and civil modular avionics. "Integrated avionics" discussed IMA - an alternative approach , the Federal Aviation Administration's "Digital Systems Validation Handbook", utilities control within the IMA architecture, remote-data concentrators, engineering judgements in development and testing integrated navigation systems and future integrated rf avionics. "Improving information management" studied electronic library system - information management on the flight deck, CALS. There is a useful summary of techniques and three further appendices cover shot peening - quality control, specification AMS 2431, and guidelines on hammer peening procedure for hot metal.
