User Interface Design Guidance for RTCA/DO-160 Webinar

One of the largest hurdles in bringing a commercial aerospace product to market is passing the gauntlet of tests defined in RTCA/DO-160. Derived from Mil-STD-810, these tests simulate the environmental and EMI/EMC conditions on commercial fixed and rotary winged aircraft.

User Interface Design Guidance for RTCA/DO-160

The Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) was founded in 1935 and provides standards and guidelines across key aviation policies. The performance standards form the basis of the Federal Aviation Administration regulatory requirements.

This webinar will focus on design considerations and best practices for User Interface products (avionics bezels, cockpit displays, airworthy keyboards, etc) and means to safeguard against test failures during crash safety, vibration, temperature altitude, lightning strike, and EMI emissions/susceptibility testing.
