Aerospace Tech WeekAerospace Technology Week has launched its preliminary agenda and guide for the event being held at the MOC Event Center in Munich, Germany, on 12-13 March 2019.

The week brings together Avionics Expo, Aerospace Testing Europe and Connected Aircraft Europe.

These three key events bring the latest advances and trends in connectivity and e-Enablement for airlines; the latest in regulatory, policy and technical SES and next-gen challenges for avionics; and the technological developments and systems that affect the design, construction and maintenance of all aircraft.

Adrian Broadbent, Event Director of Aerospace Technology Week, said: “Bringing together the best aspects for aerospace technology, Aerospace Technology Week, comprising Avionics Expo, Aero Testing Expo and Connected Aircraft Europe, will deliver greater connectivity between these exciting, fast-moving aerospace industry sectors and lead the discussions in tackling the key issues and hot topics of the day.

“An exciting line up of international experts speakers across three main conference tracks, certified training courses, technical workshops and the largest exhibition of aerospace technologies make Munich in March the place for the industry to gather and drive the industry forward.”

The event is set to be the largest gathering for the avionics, electronics, connectivity, aerospace testing and airline communities. The organisers have announced the key topics of discussion in the main conference programmes covering avionics, connected aircraft and aerospace testing.

The Avionics Expo will look at improving performance, integration and harmonisation in SESAR and NextGen, including mandates and regulatory updates; GNSS strategies – dealing with multiple constellations; trends in communication, navigation; surveillance; safety and certification; big data and cyber security and innovation in the industry.

Aerospace Testing Europe will look at developing next-generation testing strategies.

Meanwhile, Connected Aircraft Europe will look at everything from passenger entertainment to flight operations

By 2035, it is likely that inflight connectivity will be ubiquitous across the world as aircraft become smarter, fully-connected machines, and with the new services being introduced to benefit the passenger experience, grow revenues for airlines and improve safety.

However, to achieve these goals it relies on reliable and seamless connectivity – from the cabin to the cockpit.

According to Inmarsat, the connected aircraft can transmit data in real-time to reveal insights that could transform operations, potentially saving $5.6bn a year in unplanned maintenance costs.

Connectivity enables airlines to bring dramatic, yet cost effective enhancements to the passenger experience – and to take advantage of the new revenue streams that accompany them.

A leading range of airlines and industry experts will share their strategic views and experiences discussing building blocks of end-to-end aircraft connectivity; ATM and e-enabling benefits for connected aircraft; aircraft data communications – the alternatives and future.
