AKKA TECHNOLOGIES : Aviation certification: AKKA Technologies is organising the "Certification Together International Conference" forum (CTIC)
21-23 May 2013
Pierre Baudis Congress Centre - Toulouse
European leader in the field of aeronautical engineering, the AKKA Technologies Group is organising this benchmark event in Europe, set up for the industry and dedicated to all aspects of certification systems, software and electronics, through its subsidiary Aeroconseil. Aircraft manufacturers, systems manufacturers, component suppliers, subcontractors and experts from around the world will be coming to share their experience of industrial issues connected to certification for on-board systems and implementing standards: ARP 4754-A for systems, ARP 4761 for safety, DO178B/C for software and DO254 for electronics.
CERTIFICATION AT THE HEART OF EVERY ISSUE
Certification requirements applicable to new aircraft, systems and parts are a major strategic challenge, and they need to be understood and anticipated in order to optimise applications. It is essential to be in control of certification for an airplane, helicopter or engine, and especially when you need to work alongside different international authorities, as is the case with many programmes at the moment.
This is exactly why the CTIC initiative was conceived. Launched in 2008, "Certification Together" is now led by Aeroconseil and its expert partners including EADS Apsys, Capgemini (ATM software on the ground), GERAC, ACG Solutions and Patmos. Its goal is to create and facilitate interaction between professionals in the industry to help everyone get to grips with current and future certification standards.
THE CTIC FORUM, A PLATFORM TO DISCUSS THE CHALLENGES OF THE FUTURE
The avionics sector needs to respond to the demands of the authorities in terms of dependability, which is an increasingly difficult challenge, with embedded systems playing a growing role in aviation projects.
At CTIC, more than 200 certification experts, representing around 80 companies from 16 different countries, will discuss and share their experience of current certification issues, including a roadmap for the certification authorities on changes in regulations, the use of "general public" electronic components in the plane and the use of models in software development (model-based-design) to name but a few.
Market leader in France and Germany in the Automotive and Aviation industries, AKKA Technologies now enjoys a unique position. More than 11,000 engineers, spread over 20 countries, guarantee solid expertise, sustainable project solutions and an ambition to serve our clients.
