“Connected Aircraft Europe” is part of the Aerospace Technology Week, which includes the “Avionics Expo” and “Aerospace Testing Europe”.

A joint opening keynote will be delivered by Warren Lampitt, Director, Flight Technical and Captain Jason Brown, EFB and Flight Deck Connectivity Lead, Air Canada.

There will then be a session entitled “Building Blocks of End-to-End Aircraft Connectivity” chaired by Steve Bogie of Air Canada.

This will include:

  • The business case for Connectivity – Turning Cost into Profit – Tony Spouncer, Inmarsat
  • Digitally-Enabled Aircraft – Lise Gladines, Digital Services Marketing Manager, Airbus SAS
  • Derek Gefroh, Director Business Development – Connected Airplane Systems, Boeing
  • Connectivity benefits from a Flight Ops Perspective – Senior Representative, Esterline
  • Hosting Onboard Applications – Simone Drakes Avionica VP of Engineering, GE Aviation Digital

This will be followed by a session entitled: “ATM and e-Enabling Benefits for Connected Aircraft”, chaired by Mark Ter Hove, Cobham SATCOM.

This will include:

  • TBO and FFICE – Henk Hof, Head of ICAO and Concept Unit, EUROCONTROL
  • What e-Enabling does to improve services and situational awareness – Philipp Barzen, Head of Product Strategy / Chief Product Owner Flight & Navigation Products & Solutions, Lufthansa Systems
  • Importance of SATCOM for C4I Applications – Serdar Uzumcu, System Engineering Group Lead, Havelsan
  • Spinning data or streaming data (on the ground or in the air) – Murray Skelton, Teledyne Controls

The first day will be rounded-off by a panel discussion entitled “Aircraft Data Communications – The Alternatives and Future”.

  • IRIS / ARTES – Giovanni Garofalo, Senior Telecommunications Systems and Networks Engineer, European Space Agency.

The “Connected Aircraft Europe”conference continues on the Wednesday with sessions entitled: “Connecting the 4 A’s (Airport, Airline, ATM and Aircraft)”, “Demystifying Flight Tracking” and “Securing the Connected”.

By 2035, the organisers say is likely that IFC will be ubiquitous across the world as aircraft become smarter, fully-connected machines, and with 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.
