Avionics System

Avionics System

Avionics combination of two words from “aviation” and “electronics”. Avionics consists of electronic systems for use on artificial satellites, aircraft and spacecraft, comprising communications, navigation and the display and management of multiple systems (aircraft management)

Avionics System History

In 1970s Avionics was pioneered, based on the needs of the military rather than civilian aircraft development. Military aircraft had become flying sensor platforms, and making large amounts of electronic equipment work together had become the new challenge.
