Navigation systems, flight control systems, the general management and efficiency of a plane – all are already benefiting from embedded systems.
Navigation and flight control systems, management and efficiency of a plane benefit from embedded systems. And that’s just onboard. The industrial internet of things (IIoT) boom will affect loading and inventory and speed up processes on the ground and in the air. Even fuel efficiency will be improved. And embedded systems will become even more attractive to both operations and support groups as airlines try to keep down costs by boosting efficiencies.
Estimated value of the connected aircraft market by 2029
of all aircraft will have connectivity by 2030
All the processes below require connected devices with embedded microcontrollers and microprocessors to operate. It is essential to deploy advanced security into these embedded devices to ensure overall protection and device reliability.
Monitors the location of aircrafts in their assigned airspace by radar and communicates with the pilots by radio.
Consists of flight control surfaces, cockpit controls, connecting linkages, and the necessary operating mechanisms to control an aircraft.
A specialised system that automates a variety of in-flight tasks, reducing the workload on the flight crew.
A system that assists a pilot in determining the position of an aircraft, as well as location of nearby aircrafts.
Radio communication between the crew members and connecting the aircraft to ground personnel.
Entertainment available to aircraft passengers during a flight.
Virtually every embedded device that runs software will benefit from the advanced security protections offered by Emproof Nyx – including protection against reverse engineering and exploitation attacks. This is especially the case in applications that handle sensitive data, are interconnected, or run critical and functional safety.
