"The third edition of Digital Avionics Handbook, edited by Cary Spitzer, manages to achieve a remarkable balance, satisfying a wide range of readers needing to understand modern avionics. Readers of the second edition will not be disappointed by the increase in subject matter, while the clarity of explanation and inclusion of up-to-date material is retained. ... Quite simply, this is the best book on avionics currently available. ... a comprehensive guide to the avionics used in the current generation of civil and military aircraft. The contributors to the book are well known in their respective fields and the editor has managed to ensure consistency of style and explanation throughout the book."

"Digital Avionics Handbook has been the base bibliography of my master's course at UPC Barcelona-Tech for the last five years. This new edition updates the information with the latest advances in avionics in modern aircraft. Starting from the initial avionics systems, which support pilot aviation capabilities, and following with the navigation and communication functionalities of modern aircraft avionics, the book now adds the recent developments on air traffic management avionics systems. Modern tendencies of digital avionics, such as convergence of CNS, are presented in the book with examples of the commercial aircraft that integrates them. The best description of federated architectures and of the IMA concept can be found in this book. The complete avionics cycle [is addressed]: from the aviation function requirements to the final certification process. Hardware, software, and human-machine interfacing of the avionics devices are covered in detail in the book. The new edition also introduces futuristic and innovative technologies and tools such as retina scanning, speech recognition, simulators, model checking, formal methods, etc."

"... a single, trusted text series compiling the concise knowledge of a diverse collection of uniquely specialized subject matter experts [that] provides a convenient and indispensable resource for any flight test engineer or research pilot, as well as for technical personnel involved in design, production, or maintenance."
-Dr. Seamus McGovern, Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
"... provides in-depth coverage of a broad range of topics that are essential for a complete understanding of the role of electronics in modern aircraft. ... The book covers all the major areas. ... It addresses critical subsystems (e.g., health management, data recorders, and displays) as well as safety certification topics. ... The new edition of this classic reference truly delivers the goods. Along with excellent coverage of communication, navigation, and surveillance systems, the book provides the reader with much-needed material on modern issues such as model-based design, vision, and speech recognition systems."
