RTCA Webinar Series

The complimentary webinar series features talks and interviews with thought leaders, panel discussions with subject matter experts, committee awards and short Tech Talks on transformational topics. Past topics have included Spectrum/5G, Human Factors, Cybersecurity, UAS/UAM/AAM, Airport Infrastructure, Commercial Space and more.  Registration is required for the webinars, but there is no fee to attend.

Upcoming Webinar June 8: From GPS to GNSS

Moderator Dr. Christopher Hegarty leads a panel discussion on how GPS has transformed to GNSS and why we need new standards for the evolving technology. As more satellite constellations are deployed, RTCA and EUROCAE are working together to create globally harmonized standards for Dual-Frequency Multi-Constellation avionics to get the most out of the new system. The panel is intended to educate the audience on how GPS technology has evolved, what it means to aviation, and the strategy driving the technology that’s captured in the new standards.  Panelists include Barbara Clark of FAA, Laurent Azoulai of Airbus, Dr. George Ligler of Texas A&M and others.  RTCA’s William E. Jackson Award presentation follows the discussion. REGISTER

Ensuring Future Spectrum Compatibility

Webinar On Demand - Beyond 5G: Ensuring Future Spectrum Compatibility

A rapidly changing wireless spectrum environment has created a challenge for aviation standards designed to meet all performance requirements under known and stable conditions. Aviation has now seen several cases where changes in adjacent band usage has caused serious concern about the continued performance of aviation systems, most recently with the ongoing issue involving radar altimeters. Moderator Andrew Roy of Aviation Spectrum Resources leads a discussion with panelists Michael Weiler of FAA, Ed Hahn of the Air Line Pilots Association and Clay Barber of Garmin who discuss what steps aviation is taking to ensure that aviation standards evolve to remain aligned with spectrum regulations and uses in the future.
