Synopsis

Avionics is the title given to the electronic systems that are necessary for the effective control, operation and mission applications of modern aircraft. This unit introduces students to the fundamental principles, technologies and systems that define avionics technology. It provides a coherent and unified framework to model and analyse the elements of avionics systems. The focus is on the physical phenomena and analytical procedures required to understand avionics sub-systems and their integration. The unit will guide students towards an application of how fundamental techniques of electronics, communications, information and control theory are applied to modern avionics systems.

Objectives

The development and integration of previous knowledge in mechanics, electronics and control theory based on previous study leading towards an understanding of current avionics technology within a guided and self-learning environment.
