Until this book, aviation developers were frantically forced to search thousand of aviation standards for relevant information on aircraft, systems, software, and hardware development. Similar to designing a skyscraper by searching through a hardware store for parts, the results were chaotic and disconnected at best. But Today, aviation systems are increasingly integrated, complex, and inter-related; indeed, a new Ecosystem approach is required to succeed in aviation development. In his latest book Aviation Development Ecosystem, one of the world's foremost authorities on aviation development and certification clearly describes and explains in detail the true "Ecosystem" of aviation Safety, Systems, Hardware, and Software and "How To" apply the related standards and guidelines TOGETHER, including the following for aircraft, ground systems, eVTOL, rotorcraft, civil aviation, and military aircraft: DO-178C for Airborne Software: ARP4754A for Aircraft & Systems Development ARP4761 for Safety & Assessments DO-254 for Airborne Hardware DO-278A for Ground & Satellite Based Systems TSO's, TC/STC's, & PMA's DO-330 for Software Tool Qualification DO-331 for Model-Based Development DO-332 for Object Oriented Technology DO-160 for Environmental Testing DO-200B for Aeronautical Data DO-326A for Cyber-Security Multi-Core Processing Requirements, Design and Logic/Code Implementation Validation & Verification Traceability & Transition Criteria Aviation Plans, Standards, & Checklists Quality Assurance & Certification Mitigating Common Mistakes Reducing Engineering / Certification Costs & Risks Best Practices and How-To-Succeed in Aviation Development & Certification The author, Mr. Vance Hilderman, was the principal founder/CTO of three of the world's most significant aviation development/certification companies including TekSci, HighRely, and AFuzion.

This Springer Brief presents a selection of tools and techniques which either enable or improve the use of DevOps for airborne software engineering. They are evaluated against the unique challenges of the aviation industry such as safety and airworthiness, and exercised using a demonstrator in order to gather first experience. The book is structured as follows: after a short introduction to the main topics of the work in chapter 1, chapter 2 provides more information on the tools, techniques, software and standards required to implement the subsequently presented ideas. In particular, the development practice BDD, the relation between DevOps, CI & CD and both the Rust & the Nix programming language are introduced. In chapter 3 the authors explain and justify their ideas towards advancing the state of the art, mapping the aforementioned tools and techniques to the DevOps Cycle while considering aspects of Do-178C. Next, in chapter 4 the experiences gathered while implementing a demonstrator using the tools and techniques are described. Eventually, chapter 5 briefly summarizes the findings and presents a compilation of open points and missing pieces which are yet to be resolved. The book targets three different reader groups. The first one are development managers from the aerospace industry who need to see examples and experience reports for the application of DevOps for airborne software. The second group are investigators in the safety-critical embedded systems domain who look for benchmarks at various application domains. And the third group are lecturers who offer graduate level software engineering courses for safety-critical software engineering.

U.S. strength in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines has formed the basis of innovations, technologies, and industries that have spurred the nation's economic growth throughout the last 150 years. Universities are essential to the creation and transfer of new knowledge that drives innovation. This knowledge moves out of the university and into broader society in several ways â€" through highly skilled graduates (i.e. human capital); academic publications; and the creation of new products, industries, and companies via the commercialization of scientific breakthroughs. Despite this, our understanding of how universities receive, interpret, and respond to industry signaling demands for STEM-trained workers is far from complete. Promising Practices for Strengthening the Regional STEM Workforce Development Ecosystem reviews the extent to which universities and employers in five metropolitan communities (Phoenix, Arizona; Cleveland, Ohio; Montgomery, Alabama; Los Angeles, California; and Fargo, North Dakota) collaborate successfully to align curricula, labs, and other undergraduate educational experiences with current and prospective regional STEM workforce needs. This report focuses on how to create the kind of university-industry collaboration that promotes higher quality college and university course offerings, lab activities, applied learning experiences, work-based learning programs, and other activities that enable students to acquire knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to be successful in the STEM workforce. The recommendations and findings presented will be most relevant to educators, policy makers, and industry leaders.

Innovation is the lifeline of national development. This handbook is a collection of chapters that provide techniques and methodologies for achieving the transfer of defense-targeted science and technology development for general industrial applications. The handbook shows how to translate theory and ideas into practical applications. Experts from national defense institutions, government laboratories, business, and industry contributed chapters to this handbook. The handbook also serves as an archival guide for nations, communities, and businesses expecting to embark upon science and technology transfer to industry. Included are several domestic and international case examples of practical innovation. Since the dawn of history, nations have engrossed themselves in developing new tools, techniques, and methodologies to protect their geographical boundaries. From the crude implements used by prehistorical people to very modern technologies, the end game has been the same. That is, to protect the homeland. Even in times of peace, efforts must be made to develop new machinery, equipment, processes, and devices targeted for the protection of the nation. The emergence of organized nations and structured communities facilitated even more innovative techniques of national defense. Evolution, revolution, and innovation have defined human existence for millennia. From the Ice Age to the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, and to the modern age, innovation, rudimentary as it may be in many cases, has determined how humans move from one stage to the next. This comprehensive handbook provides a clear guide on the nuances of initiating and actualizing innovation. Both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of innovation are covered in the handbook. Features: Uses a systems framework to zero in on science and technology transfer Focuses on leveraging technical developments in defense organizations for general societal applications Coalesces the transfer strategies collated from various sources and practical applications Represents a world-class diverse collection of science and technology development, utilization, and transfer Highlights a strategy for government, academia, and industry partnerships

Recent advances in the disciplines of computer science (e.g., quantum theory, artificial intelligence), biotechnology and nanotechnology have deeply modified the structures of knowledge from which military capabilities are likely to develop. This book discusses the implications of disruptive technologies for the defence innovation ecosystem. Two complementary dimensions of the defence innovation ecosystem are highlighted: the industrial and intra-organizational. On the industrial scale, there is a shift in the ecology of knowledge underpinning the defence industrial and technological base (DITB). At the intra-organizational level, it is the actors’ practices that change and, through them, their skills and the processes by which they are acquired and transferred. In this context, the sources and legitimacy of innovation are being transformed, in turn requiring sometimes radical adaptations on the part of the various actors, including companies, military services, research communities and governmental agencies, which make up the defence innovation ecosystem.
