EUROCAE and RTCA, Inc. announced today an international event for aviation software experts. The International Aviation Software Summit, occurring virtually June 23 and 24, 2021, is free to attend and includes two-and-a-half hours of programming each day plus on-demand sessions. The event, co-produced by EUROCAE and RTCA, Inc., gathers industry, government and academia professionals to collaborate on current software standards applications and create dialogue for future development. The event addresses traditional and new entrant software needs and connects the audience to experts knowledgeable in the execution of software processes.
Topics include: Practical Software Development for Today’s Aviation Ecosystem, Expanding Software Rules and Regulations for New Entrants (UAM, UAS, Autonomous Automobiles), Using Supplements in Your Software Development Process, Challenges with UAM Machine Control Software Certification and more.
“We’re looking forward to bringing the industry and regulators together for this two-day event to discuss considerations in software standards development”, says Terry McVenes, President and CEO of RTCA, Inc. “The event creates an opportunity to hear directly from and collaborate with experts and professionals from around the world in software to ensure our standards development efforts continually evolve to represent the industry’s needs.”
“Software standards are fundamental, well harmonised and therefore an integral part of the certification process. Our ED-12, DO-178 and the equal standards for ground systems, are known and applied all over the world. This Software Summit will help us to keep those standards on the forefront of aviation, up to date, future proof and an essential contribution to safety in aviation.” stated Christian Schleifer, Secretary General of EUROCAE. “Having worked for many years in Avionics certification, I have a particular interest in this event and look forward to learning more on the latest developments in software certification”.
The International Aviation Software Summit is seeking presentations from the industry for the on-demand content section. There’s a call for presentations submission document on the website. For presentation, event and registration details, please visit: https://www.rtca.org/events/summit/
