The Domain / Working Group represents interests for the European standardization activities in the field of Information and Data related technologies for aerospace applications. Examples are Archiving, Cybersecurity, Blockchain technologies or health monitoring. It prepares ASD-STAN prEN standards, EN-standardization projects and comments as well as participates in other European and International projects. The Working Group provides interested stakeholders the opportunity to actively work on standardization procedures, contribute their ideas and suggestions and take part in the information exchange between national experts.
Any experts interested in involvement in ASD-STAN Domain D07 and its working groups are welcome to contact ASD-STAN by email:
- ASD Strategic Standardization Group: http://www.asd-ssg.org/
ASD SSG is a group created by ASD with the support of European manufacturers and defence agencies to share a common strategy for the development and deployment of interoperability solutions all along the product life-cycle.
- ISO 10303 AP242 “Managed model based 3D engineering”: http://www.ap242.org/welcome
AP242 is the key standard to support the long-term archiving and interoperability of A&D 3D Model Based Definition for A&D, the AP242 edition 2 will be published as an International Standard in January 2020.
AP242 is the main standard referenced by the ASD-STAN prEN9300 series LOTAR standards.
Working Groups of D07
D07/WG01 LOng Term Archiving and Retrieval of Digital Technical Product Data (LOTAR)
Convener: Bernd Feldfoss, Airbus, Germany
Secretariat: Marie-Noëlle Touzeau, BNAE, France
The Working Group represents interests for the National, European and International standardization work in the field of “LOTAR LOng Term Archiving and Retrieval of Digital Technical Product Data” for aerospace applications. It prepares ASD-STAN prEN standards, EN-standardization projects and comments as well as participates in other European and International projects.The Working Group provides all interested stakeholders the opportunity to actively work on standardization procedures, contribute their ideas and suggestions and take part in the information exchange between National, European and International experts.
D07/WG02 RFID Radio Frequency IDentification and connected devices
Convener: Vincent Melchor, Safran Group, France
Secretariat: Marie-Noëlle Touzeau, BNAE,France
The Working Group represents interests for the National, European and International standardization work in the field of “Connected devices, including but not limited to Radio Frequency Identification technologies” for aerospace applications. It prepares ASD-STAN prEN standards, EN-standardization projects and comments as well as participates in other European and International projects.The Working Group provides all interested stakeholders the opportunity to actively work on standardization procedures, contribute their ideas and suggestions and take part in the information exchange between National, European and International experts.
The scope of ASD-STAN D07/WG02 is the standardization of UHF Passive RFID, HF Passive RFID, Contact Memory Buttons (CMB) and Aerospace Active RFID Tags integrated or positioned on the aircraft structure. The scope has been extended to the standardization needs of the Internet of Things and on-board equipment of wireless avionics intra-communication systems. The objective is to consider the needs of end users (industrialists, companies, ministries, etc.) and to reduce proprietary solutions by developing interoperable standards between the various stakeholders. This is also providing specifications not only to manufacturers of active and passive UHF RFID tags but also of embedded equipment for wireless avionics intra-communication systems to design, manufacture and test them for industry aerospace by identifying the performance required to be usable during ground and/or flight operations, while being subject to the global flight environment.
Standardization needs in this area may also relate to beacon attachment requirements.
D07/WG02 experts will also develop European standards providing complementary standards to American standards, with the requirements and tests necessary for European aeronautical players, in collaboration with label manufacturers.
The scope was extended to standardization needs for IoT and embedded equipment of wireless avionics intra-communication systems that would emerge at the request of industry to define minimum performance and RF emissions requirements which must be respected to integrate this equipment inside or near an aircraft.
D07/WG03 Prognostics and Health Monitoring (PHM)
Convener: Gilles Debache, Dassault-Aviation, France
Secretariat: Marie-Noëlle Touzeau, BNAE,France
The purpose of this Working Group is to harmonize the dialogue between manufacturers, prime contractors, owners and customers, in view of making it easier to draw up Built-In Tests specifications, share Built-In Tests architecture models and the Built-In Tests technical configuration of systems during the operational use phase.
Unlike series production, support is often a volatile, uncertain and ambiguous activity. Actors evolve according to the situation and support is a system of systems. Moreover, the exponential rise in the volume of data has to be managed. It results from the functional richness that digital transformation allows for the design and operation of systems such as aircraft. Digital transformation has three direct benefits that support should not only consider but take advantage of :
- The dematerialization of reality
- Modeling based on System Engineering (MBSE: Model Based System Engineering)
- The Digital Twin
Dematerialization: Tangible objects are replaced by algorithms providing at least the same services. For example paper is replaced by digital to store and transmit data.
Modeling: It becomes possible to formally characterize the services exchanged between the actors of the same activity such as support.
The Digital Twin: Cooperation between the different actors of the same complex activity requires consensual supervision and decision support.
EN 9721 addressed the issue of industry cooperation on BITs (Built-in-tests) and sharing of the test design features.
EN 9722 has given a first oversight of the services to be communalized around the data of the aircraft health record and to be exchanged between the support actors
EN 9723 (on-going) is a continuation of the previous EN’s, it aims to determine, applied to the support, the characterization of the digital twins of the actors to facilitate and fluidify their cooperation and the emergence of the digital twin (systems of digital twins of the actors) of the shared activity.
Ultimately, Digital transformation questions us :
- How to reconfigure value chains, whether in terms of efficiency or relevance.
- How to reduce the workload induced by the collection and processing of the data necessary for the personalization of the technical act of the moment on the aircraft in its configuration of the moment with the up-to-date instructions for this technical act.
- How to develop support activities that are not only reactive but also proactive, flexible and fluid
- How to steer support actors through the knowledge enabled by the combination of digital continuity and modeling
- How to ensure subsidiarity at the right level both to give freedom of decision and to maintain the attractiveness of our profession for young people
- How to rethink professions
- How to share experience for the benefit of the profession
- How to increase the residual value of assets
- How to share the value between interconnected actors
The goal of D7/WG03 is to adress all these questions and help the community by sharing common vision.
