The Department of Avionics aims to prepare Avionics Engineering students well-groomed in broad-based technical knowledge especially in the field of Avionics Engineering and capable of meeting industrial requirements and carrying forward contemporary research is continually evolving areas of Avionics Architecture, Radars, Guidance & Navigation, for Aerial and spaceborne systems and applications.
The term avionics emanates from combining aviation and electronics. The scope of Avionics not only encompasses the electronic systems installed on all Aerospace Vehicles, be it aircraft or spacecraft, but also ground-based surveillance and support systems. Avionics systems include Fly-By-Wire Flight Control Systems, Human Machine interfaces, navigation systems, communications systems, vehicle health management systems, sensors, networking, flight, and air traffic management systems. With Avionics Systems constituting almost forty percent of the overall aircraft cost, avionics is a multi-billion-dollar industry word wide and rapidly flourishing. The essence of Avionics is to design for Space Weight and Power constrained environments where safety criticality is the overriding factor. Resultantly, avionics engineering is applicable not only to airborne and spaceborne platforms but all autonomous systems where safety is paramount, self-driving cars being a prime example. Futuristic transportation systems like Urban Air Mobility and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) will further enhance the scope of Avionics Engineering.
The contemporary trends in aviation to make the air space denser and denser with a vast spectrum of aircraft ranging from small UAVs to supersonic commercial aircraft has opened a multitude of research areas related to Avionics. The safety criticality aspects of Avionics imply special adoption steps, Artificial Intelligence that is largely used in other systems is required to meet avionics certification mandates. Developing certifiable AI-based avionics systems is a key research area. Development of Communication, Navigation, and surveillance systems to make air traffic management of such a huge volume of hybrid mix of aerial platforms and their integration in National Air Space is another challenging area. Rapidly reducing space, weight, and power requirements in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and small-size satellites calls for developing small Multifunction Integrated RF Front Ends and Antennas. Concept of connected aircraft warrants robust and efficient communication systems for networked operations. Reliance on networks and an increased role of software in systems also bring to focus the research required in Cyber Security of Avionics Systems. To make Urban Air Mobility a possibility in the near future.
