Webinar Safety Certification Key to Sharing the Sky for Avionics and UAVs

November 15, 2017 | 2:00 PM EST

Drones, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), or whatever you wish to call them are everywhere. Your neighbor probably has one. But, are they safe enough to share the airspace with manned aircraft like commercial passenger platforms and even small business jets? Not really, not yet. Manned aircraft have strict levels of safety certification — such as DO-178C and DO-254 — for flight critical software and hardware because human lives depend on it. However, the drone revolution will not be stopped and avionics experts in industry and government are developing protocols and products to enable a level of safety for unmanned aircraft that manned platforms have.

This E-cast of industry experts looks at the challenges involved in these efforts and cover solutions for solving avionics certification challenges in drones ranging from hand-thrown UAVs to transport platforms.
