FBW12 | CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless Workshop 2012
August 24-27, 2012 | Orono, Maine, USA

Vision: To minimize cables and connectors across the aerospace industry by providing reliable, lower cost, higher performance alternatives for a vehicle/program’s life cycle.

The 5th CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless Workshop - FBW12 will focus on advancing the End-User driven International Public-Private Consortia projects

Preamble: Wireless Technology Breakthroughs Make New Aircraft / Spacecraft Vehicle Architectures Possible New technology options for data connectivity, processing and micro/nano manufacturing are making it possible to retrofit existing aerospace vehicles. New vehicles can now develop architectures that provide for and take advantage of alternatives to wired connectivity. But to do all this, we need to make wireless connectivity as reliable and useful as wired.

There are several technological challenge, e.g. onboard wireless RF issues including dedicated RF spectrum, standards and interoperability, EMI/EMC, Radio Frequency Interference and jamming, environmental issues, multi-path, density of information with certain radio types/frequencies, RF failure modes and design/development costs to provide modularity and accessibility in the vehicle. Each of the alternatives to wired connectivity have their challenges and advantages, so these are only a part of the development issues the developing community faces to bring forward viable less-wire and wireless technology applications.

It needs a global concerted effort to examine both radio-frequency (RF) and non-RF alternatives to achieve the “Fly-by-Wireless” vision: to minimize cables and connectors across the aerospace industry by providing reliable, lower cost, and higher performance alternatives for a vehicle/program's life-cycle.

FBW12 Focus: “To create a world class, state-of-the-art wireless testing and research facility that will benefit the Aerospace industry worldwide for applications ranging from SHM, Aviation RF Communication Spectrum, Wireless Simulators, Wireless Engine and possibly UAV applications”

During the FBW 2011 Workshop, end-users identified and proposed eight (8) fly-by-wireless project concepts for advancing to system / product demonstration level. Now, the task is to select those concepts for the collaborative project development step that will be supported by the complete supply chain, can succeed in securing the financing, and have strong business case.

The upcoming 5th Fly-by-Wireless workshop aims: (a) to refine the focus projects and pertinent details, identify specific development needs, outline teaming and funding schemes, plan project oversight and execution, and establish milestones from which to gauge success of the projects, and (b) stimulate formation of project teams comprised of technology providers and application/end users and project proposals from each team that have significant mutual benefit and high potential of funding from internal of external organizations.

1. Develop Fly by Wireless solutions for UAV platform;
2. Develop a reduced cost/weight wireless systems for aero-simulators;
3. Development of Back-up Wireless Systems
4. Develop Wireless Controlled Loop monitoring system

5. Wireless Test bed Development Evaluate Shuttle use cases/guidelines for wireless systems Define safety requirements for wireless systems at criticality levels Define the parameters necessary for evaluating wireless systems Develop well defined Wireless Test bed with channel characterization.

6. Sensors: Develop power-free/self-powered sensors for aero conditions (e.g., icing) Wireless sensor integration for engine safety (ongoing Wireless Engine Test bed development)

7. Collaboration Tools: Develop regularly updated portal for wireless sensors and systems Formulate collaborative testing programs using existing FBW platforms

8. Wi – SHM
FBW sensor networks for structural health monitoring systems.

In order to accomplish the ambitious goals of this 5th Fly-by-Wireless workshop, the program has been structured in four parts:

I. Case for CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless Sector Consortia: The plenary session outlines the mission, vision, and goals of the CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless Consortium as well as presentations from ICAO, and visionaries worldwide to minimize cables and connectors across the aerospace industry. The Plenary session of the Workshops will provide participants with the raison d’être of FBW consortia and the CANEUS approach to implementing its goals. This plenary session will also address the key challenges faced in working on collaborative high-risk, high-cost projects.

II. Sessions Covering End-User Needs and Technology Developers Gap: The goal of the subsequent Sessions and the presentations from world-class Experts, including those selected from the abstracts received in response to the call for papers, is to update participants on the needs and lessons learned of the aerospace (aeronautics, space and Defence) industries including the basis for the business case, as well, all aspects of fly-by-wireless technologies: the state-of-the-art in developments related to FBW, challenges, applications and to identify the technology gaps.

    III. The Consortia Project Development, Implementation and Success Criteria: Sessions are the heart of this 5th BW workshop. We are endeavouring to create a program that optimizes the use of participant time to produce measurable deliverables to advance the goals and activities of each of the existing well-defined projects as well identify new projects with strong business case.

    Topics covered in the sessions from the second part of the workshop will feed into this third part of the workshops: participants will apply the knowledge acquired during the sessions towards formulating and implementing existing as well new projects. Finally, as a measure of the workshop success, each project team will present the findings and outcome to gauge project completion and milestone achievements, and the avenues to be pursued to overcome challenges such as intellectual property, funding, and government regulations.

    IV. Workshop Outcome - Projects and Reports: These sessions aim to summarize the output of each of the existing and proposed Consortia projects. In these sessions, workshop participants will also have the opportunity to learn about the implementation plan and nominate new leaders for the working groups.

    Supporting Activities and Resources

    a. Technical / Industrial Exhibits: There are limited exhibit spaces that would allow large and small industries and universities / research laboratories to showcase their capabilities: both hardware and other demos. These displays will also contribute towards the projects presented during the workshop sessions. To encourage maximum participation, the Planning Committee has allocated maximum 5 exhibit spaces for each project.

    b. Handbook for Project Development, Background Papers and Facilitators For the workshop participants, we have prepared a Sector Consortia handbook that will help participants guide through the various stages of the project preparations. There are many additional background papers that are being commissioned to help provide participants with the various topics of the interest.
