36th IEEE/AIAA Digital Avionics Systems Conference

The conference theme for the 36th DASC is the design of technologies, procedures, and regulations to safely and efficiently accommodate a diverse spectrum of platform types into space and into modern civil airspace systems. Participants will be challenged to show how their work helps to develop, promote, or enable multiple classes of users (Commercial, Civil, General Aviation, Military, Recreational) access to space and global civil airspaces. Civil aviation faces challenges of new requirements and legacy platforms that can be expensive to modernize. The emergence of private and commercial space launch capabilities brings new challenges in technical, regulatory, and security arenas. An increased reliance upon automated systems puts fresh emphasis on the importance of Cyber security across the spectrum of user environments (ground, air, space). The continued growth of Unmanned Systems, especially among Recreational users, remain a significant factor in Air Traffic Management planning and risk mitigation. The progress of Commercial applications for automated transportation and delivery of goods and services (both ground and air) promises exciting capabilities but faces serious challenges in technologies, procedures, and government regulations. General Aviation users will soon include personal vehicles that do not require traditional airport infrastructures. Military aircraft (manned and unmanned) must soon obey the same requirements as Civil and Commercial platforms for domestic and international flight.
