The Avionics Systems Panel (ASP) is a Technical Panel of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society (AESS). The Panel shall address avionics systems for all aircraft systems supporting commercial, military, and general aviation operations.  The avionics system functions include communications; command and control; navigation; surveillance; manned/unmanned air traffic management; and space systems (launch vehicles, spacecraft, and satellites).  The Panel also supports activities related to the history of avionics systems and economic impact assessment of avionics systems.  The Panel will monitor, analyze and support industry and Government activities, such as the NASA Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM), the FAA NextGen program, and the European Union (EU) Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) program that impact the future of aviation.

1.    The goals of the Panel are:

  • To promote and support collaborative research initiatives in the domain of Avionics;
  • To promote and support high-quality IEEE publications in the domain of Avionics;
  • To promote and support educational activities in the domain of Avionics;
  • To sustain and oversee the programs of the IEEE/AIAA Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC), the Integrated Communications Navigation and Surveillance Conference (ICNS); and create new conferences or partnerships;
  • To establish a liaison and joint work program with the Cyber Security Panel;
  • To establish a liaison and joint work program with the Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) Panel;
  • To manage the nomination and selection of candidates for IEEE Awards in the domain of Avionics;
  • To encourage the submission of nominations for IEEE Fellows and Senior Members in the domain of Avionics;
  • To recommend and support new IEEE Standards or revisions of existing IEEE standards pertaining to the domain of Avionics;

2.    The Panel is composed of IEEE Associate or higher level members who are representatives of industry, government laboratories, educational institutions and professional societies, and who are active in the domain of Avionics.
