Avionics hardware and software continue to get more complex as they add capability to cockpit systems and ease of use to pilots. In tandem, complexity also mounts regarding the process of certifying these multicore, graphics-processing, and other avionics products and systems. This webcast featuring industry experts will cover various approaches and solutions for certifying these solutions to conforming to Design Assurance Level (DAL) A in military helicopters, fighter jets, VTOL platforms, and unmanned aircraft systems.
ENSCO Avionics’ Chief Technologiest/Certification Manager Todd Stempel is one of three speakers for this webinar.
Todd Stempel holds Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and Mathematics and has over 25 years of Safety-Critical Avionics system, software and hardware experience across a broad range of commercial and military Aircraft platforms subsystems. He is a contributing member of the RTCA Forum for Aeronautical Software (FAS) since 2017. The RTCA FAS is chartered to provide clarifications to Aerospace industry questions and errata related to DO-178C, DO-278A, and the Supplements (DO-330, DO-331, DO-332, and DO-333). He is also the Co-Chair of RTCA/EASA SC-240/WG-117 SubGroup 1 which will produce a new DO-xxx/ED-yyy document related to Certification of Lower Risk Applications including UAS. He is the ENSCO Avionics Chief Technologist/Certification Manager and provides Program Management, Project Engineering, Certification Liaison, supplier oversight and organizational technical leadership support as required. He performs DO-178C and DO-254 Gap Analyses. His contributions span FADEC, Primary and Secondary Power Distribution Systems, Primary Cockpit Displays, Digital Moving Map, Smart Multi-Function Displays, Attitude and Heading Reference Systems, Flight Controls, Targeting Systems, Flight Management Systems, Cabin Systems, Mission Planning, Life Support Systems, Thermal Control Systems, Power Supplies and Mission Processors. His experience includes FAA and EASA compliance projects for Software and AEH at CEH, SEH, and LRU compliance boundaries ranging from Level A through Level D criticality that have included FADEC AS and OS software, Commercial RTOS (GH, WindRiver), MBDV (Matlab, SCADE, Beacon) for fixed-wing, rotorcraft and advanced VTOL platforms.
