Enhanced safety and communications between the aircraft in the sky and the ground control continue to dominate the industry as technology becomes an increasing driver. As airlines move from capacity to efficiency, what are the latest regulations and how are regulators and mandates impacting the industry? As drones/UAV’s integrate into the airspace, and AI being utilised to greater extent, how are these being regulated to ensure safety is prioritised?
What is the latest position on mandates, such as DO326A, and regulatory frameworks? What needs to be installed in the aircraft to meet these mandates, what is the impact on avionics for operators, how training/retraining is having an impact and who is going to pay for updates? How are the FAA, EUROCONTROL, ICAO and NASA harmonizing for efficient and common purpose? How does this impact our industry?

How can avionics applications directly impact safety, from possible accidents, runway incursion or loss of control in flight, and what developments are being made to increase situational awareness and safety? How can avionics technologies and safety critical systems enhance aircraft efficiencies and sustainability? Such as, how do the developments in the use of ADS-B enhance efficiency, work on using the vortex for increasing lift improving fuel savings, or relative positions of aircraft to detect possible runway incursions? What landing aids can assist with safety automatic approach and landings? Can we expand use of aircraft for collection and reporting weather data, using existing ACMS/ACARS and other sensors?

With the growing use of wireless technologies on board aircraft, for sensors, data exchange, and other applications, how will wireless onboard avionics networks cope with the shortage of Spectrum? With the forthcoming introduction of 6G, how could this interfere with other radars and how can Spectrum management be best conducted? Can generic open-architecture play a bigger role, or the reuse of embedded platforms for different aircraft. How does aviation infrastructure need to change to meet the future demands and expectations?

Data is the lifeblood of any aircraft for the airline or OEM to analyse for improvements, efficiencies, and cost savings. But how do we decide what data is first required - can data structure hierarchy assist? How do we get that data between aircraft and ground securely, with the prevalence of cyberthreats, and within the bandwidth (on-board vs on-ground computing)? With wireless making it more prone to corruption or cyberattack, what is the possibility to corrupt a flight deck, and how do we secure the threat and validate?
With so much data, what do you do with it – can AI assist in turning data into useful information? How do EASA and FAA guidelines compare for consistencies?

Technology will continue to play a major role in the aircraft cockpit and cabin, with greater integration of systems and apps, requiring more capacity and generating more and more data.
Autonomy is increasing to reduce the impact of pilot shortages, how much of pilot can you get rid of? How much can you automate, what role can AI play in avionics systems to help pilots fly, or data analysis for pilots, how do you certify and how can you do so safely?
As System-on-Chip replace multicore processors to speed processing of data, what role can AI play in analysing data before its transfer to the ground? What is the next generation of NextGen and the future for data comms and avionics?

EVTOLs/Air-Taxis/Drones will see huge growth in the near future, which will require airspace and air traffic management within the shared airspace of commercial aircraft and around airports. What is the future of the air taxi service, how will they operate near and within commercial airspace (UTM), and how does the current infrastructure need to evolve (including TCAS)?
The recent significant growth in Uncrewed Aerial Systems will create a big impact on the available safe airspace. This highlights the need to harmonize the Unmanned Aircraft "Traffic System" Management (UTM), between an ecosystem for uncontrolled operations and controlled airspace. How will we develop a safe and efficient aviation transportation system for UAVs and UAM? How has Urban Air Mobility (UAM) become Advanced Air Mobility (AAM)?
