A New Network Configuration Management Architecture for Future Aircraft Systems


Aircraft systems are evolving and being enhanced thanks to new design paradigms leveraging on recent technology advances in embedded systems. However, the Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) model, used in current avionics, has shown important limitations to accommodate such evolution. These new paradigms demand for much more global system modularity than what IMA is able to offer. Such system evolution has as well an impact on the underlying different networks present on aircrafts. In this context, it is mandatory to investigate the kind and the breadth of adaptation networks need in order to cope with new requirements. To this end, this paper we firstly investigate the current aircrafts network configuration and management procedures. It appears that they lack the features, more specifically, the configuration management features, necessary to support these new use cases. We then look at proposals trying to fulfil this features gap. Each of them, while providing parts of the answers, also come with trade-off or insufficiencies that prevent them from fully answering to the new needs. Then, a new network configuration architecture able to cope with the newly defined configuration management requirements is provided. A comparison to the other approaches is presented, so to highlight how the proposed architecture better fulfils long-term evolution requirements while being less complex and more suitable for current configuration procedures than the other proposal. Finally, a simulation of the configuration architecture is done to provide insights on the new proposed features.
