ED-14 and DO-160 have been in existence for a long time and were initially a set of simple procedures and limits used to guarantee a minimum quality level regarding robustness of airborne equipment. Since they were first introduced their purpose has evolved and many sections aim to provide environmental stress conditions as similar as possible to actual inflight conditions, in particular when systems providing safety related functions are concerned. This has resulted in more complex considerations and consequently a need to provide more guidance to the user of the documents that are now published in a ED-234.
WG-14 works in coordination with RTCA SC-135 Environmental Test.

WG-49 has been reactivated to perform maintenance on the Mode S Transponder MOPS ED-73E and ED-115. It will work joint with RTCA SC-209.
The Mode S Secondary Surveillance Radar transponder system is a key element of ATM surveillance. It supports different applications including Mode S Elementary surveillance, Mode S Enhanced Surveillance, ADS-B surveillance applications and anti-collision applications such as ACAS. The interoperability of the Mode S transponder with other systems used on board aircraft or on the ground is crucial to achieve a safe and efficient ATM Operation.
During the revision experience from the operational use of Mode S will be integrated and problems detected will be corrected. Furthermore support for new procedures such as Interval Management will be implemented which requires the exchange of information between aircraft. Access to real-time environmental data such as wind, temperature and turbulence will also be realised. Spectrum protection is an additional topic that may require adaptations to the transponder implementations. Finally, preparing the transponder for new functionalities required by ACAS Xu will be an additional task.
During this activity, WG-49 will work in close cooperation with WG-51 ADS-B, WG-75 Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems and WG-73 Unmanned Aircraft Systems. Furthermore, WG-49 cooperates with RTCA SC-209. To facilitate this complex cooperation, a Combined Surveillance Committee has been set up.

WG-59 has published ED-133 "Flight Object Interoperabilty" in 2009.

Based on experience acquired during the implementation of this specification and driven by requirements in the scope of the Pilot Common Project (PCP), WG-59 was reactivated to produce Revision A of ED-133.

Because of technical and interoperability issues it was decided that further validation work is required in order to develop a stable set of technical and operational requirements. These validation activities are currently carried out under the lead of the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU). It is expected that the results of this validation will be used by WG-59 for the update of ED-133 starting in the course of 2020.

The Forum on Aeronautical Software (FAS) has been established to provide a forum for those involved in the development of aeronautical software to share experiences and good practices and to provide a platform for the exchange of information regarding subjects addressed in the “software document suite”, new and emerging technologies, development methodologies, interesting use cases and other topics related to aeronautical software and related technologies. More information on the FAS and its activities is available here.





Currently there is little guidance or regulatory material published on the subject of Aeronautical System Security. In contrast, there is considerable guidance and regulatory material published on the subject of aeronautical system safety and ground systems security. As safety and security are two distinct but related concepts that interact, the WG will be required to place emphasis on their respective characteristics and dedicated domains of application.
WG-72 is developing Aeronautical System Security guidelines specifying security objectives rather than solutions in order to ensure their stability over time, addressing airborne systems and interfacing ground systems in their end-to-end relationship.
In doing so, WG-72 has adopted a holistic approach, addressing security-related topics throughout the entire lifecycle of products developed, manufactured and operated by many different civil aviation stakeholders.

WG-92 is working to maintain the current ED-92B version up to date and synchronized with other VDL standards. ED-92 is used in the baseline for the certification of the avionics systems and has to be consistent with the expectations of the European DLS-IR mandate.
In addition, while working on ED-92B which currently only contains test cases for the avionics systems, WG-92 identified the need to add test cases related to ground systems requirements in order to ensure the interoperability of the VDL Mode 2 systems.
The group has to determine what these test cases are and determine how these new test cases could be integrated in the existing MOPS.
Finally, a VDL Connection-less mode is under study by the VDL working groups as it should improve the system performances and reliability. The on-going discussions may lead to VDL standards update (ICAO 9776, ARINC 631, MASPS & MOPS) and, in that frame, ED-92B should be impacted.
In order to reach this objective, WG-92 is working jointly with the AEEC Data Link (DLK) Systems Subcommittee and the RTCA SC-214 VDL Sub-Group. Each group is in charge of a set of VDL-related documents, which are interlinked but cover different aspects.

Physical test-benches used in the aircraft development are complex platforms with high initial and recurrent costs. One means to alleviate these problems - Virtual Testing - is a promising solution that has already demonstrated its benefits in other industries (cell phone, etc.). However, in the avionics industry, it brings specific challenges: complex distributed systems, hardware heterogeneity, and multiple supplier infrastructures.
WG-97 ‘standardises’ the integration of virtual avionic components and enable the development of ‘plug and play’ virtual test benches.

Fatal accidents have occurred overwater, including Air France flight 447, in which flight data and cockpit voice recorders have been very long to recover. As the long or non-recovery of recorders greatly reduces the likelihood of the actual cause of these accidents being discovered, and in order to improve the recovery of wreckage and flight recorders following an accident or incident, ED-62A has defined a performance standard for ELTs.
WG-98 is working to update ED-62 to take into account recent developments and has created a MASPS defining the automatic in-flight triggering criteria of the ELT.
The work is carried out jointly with RTCA SC-229 Aircraft Emergency Locator Transmitters.

Several aircraft disappearances occurred over water, including Malaysian MH370, for which the survivors, the wreckage and the flight recorders have not been recovered. As the long-lasting or non-recovery of recorders greatly reduces the likelihood of discovering the actual cause of accidents, and in order to improve the recovery of wreckage and flight recorders following an accident or incident, it is necessary to improve performance standards for new-generation ELTs and their means of activation.
In addition, remote activation from the ground of ELT offers the possibility to localize in-flight a non-cooperative aircraft and therefor participate to the ICAO Global Aeronautical Distress & Safety System (GADSS) autonomous distress tracking function.
Finally, a general effort has been made to make General Aviation (GA) safer, including safety recommendations to make the complete ELT system more reliable (from the ELT unit to the antenna, including the cables) and reduce the GA distress cases where the ELT unit is operational but not the complete ELT system (unplugged antenna, damaged cables). This effort led to the development of ELT with internal/integral GNSS receiver and SAR antenna. For those integrated ELT, a remote activation from ground would be relevant for disappearance cases when the ELT is not triggered by G-switch or manually.
The subgroup will develop a MASPS for Return Link Service.

Internationally, operating regulations on runway surface contamination are primarily set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), particularly through Annexes 6, 14 and 15 of the Convention on the International Civil Aviation. The said annexes set out recommendations on the information to be given to the flight crew on the type and thickness of contaminants present on runway surfaces. In line with the approved Terms of Reference (ToR), to define the performances expected from the systems and the way of verifying that the latter reach them, WG-109 is tasked to develop Minimum Aviation System Performance Standards (MASPS) for Runway Weather Information Systems.

WG-110 will develop MOPS for Class A Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems (HTAWS), analogous to fixed wing TSO-C151 Class A TAWS, in support of offshore helicopter operations. The justification for the tasking includes:
• Class A HTAWS is mandated for new aircraft first registered after 31 December 2018 under Commission Regulation (EU) 2016/1199 of 22 July 2016 (SPA.HOFO.160(c)). This mandate may be extended to additional aircraft by EASA Rulemaking Task RMT.0708. The MOPS are required to form the basis of a technical standard to support the air operating rule mandate.
• It has been demonstrated that Class A HTAWS (provided with the “Classic Modes” defined in UK CAA CAP 1519) can provide a significant (four major accidents in UK operations alone could have been avoided) and very cost-effective (of the order of $20k per aircraft) improvement in the safety of offshore helicopter operations, and would address a number of UK AAIB Safety Recommendations. The MOPS will promote and facilitate the introduction of appropriate HTAWS.
The focus of the WG will be on offshore helicopter operations.

The aviation industry is witnessing a revolution that will see integration of more electricity to power vehicles. One factor leading this revolution stems from environmental constraints (in order to lower the emissions): studies into the electrification of aircraft propulsion revealed the potential of reducing carbon footprint by 50% between 2005 and 2050 – supporting ACARE goals. This step-change in technology / architectures will require new ways of collaborating among airframers, engine manufacturers and system suppliers – and addressing the regulatory framework and means of compliance for these new architectures. Hybrid/Electric Aircraft promise to be one of the enablers in realizing ACARE Flightpath 2050 goals.

The primary scope of this group is to prepare technical standards, guides and any other material required to support the development of systems and the certification of aeronautical systems implementing AI-technologies.

The objectives of the working group are to:
• Develop and publish a first technical report to establish a comprehensive statement of concerns versus the current industrial standards. This first deliverable should clarify the future scope of applicability and be released in the first six months.
• Develop and publish EUROCAE Technical Reports for selecting, implementing, and certifying AI technology embedded into and/or for use with aeronautical systems in both aerial vehicles and ground systems.
• Act as a key forum for enabling global adoption and implementation of AI technologies that embed or interact with aeronautical systems.
• Enable aerospace manufactures and regulatory agencies to consider and implement common sense approaches to the certification of AI systems, which unlike other avionics software, has fundamentally non-deterministic qualities.

WG-115 is established to develop standards to support the safe and harmonised implementation of Counter-UAS Systems into airport and ANSP systems.

The scope of the WG is limited to surveillance, interoperability and interfaces with stakeholders involved in the C-UAS domain: e.g. ANSP, Airports, U-Space Service Providers, Surveillance Systems manufacturers, law enforcement forces, pilots…. Focus is on the detection and surveillance capabilities around the airfield, but C-UAS capability could be extended to operations in other environments, such as urban areas. The topic of cooperative targets detection is not to be addressed, but interaction with information from cooperative sensors should be included in the overall system assessment. Interoperability of the defeat capabilities with the airport and ANSP systems will be addressed.

Standards should describe the performance of the system (e.g. minimum level of detection required), interoperability and interfaces with stakeholders. General operational requirements and assumptions regarding the intended use and the expected users should first be established.

The regulatory framework for UAS is being developed. EASA recently released additional information on their plan for certifying UAS defining the certified, specific and open categories. While the certified UAS category is aligned with the DO-178C/ED-12C document suite for development, and the open category does not have a software development standard needed for use and deployment, the specific category does not currently have a comprehensive compliant development standard identified to provide assurance as to the safe operations of the UAS.
The continued release of information on UAS development and UAS operations by EASA provides a need but also an opportunity for a new software development process standard that will be specific to low risk UAS applications and the specific category defined by EASA.
Moreover, it is considered that certain applications eg. by the general aviation (GA) community might benefit from a simplified software development methodology.
In addition, the FAS Ad Hoc UAS report recommended the creation of supplemental guidance in the areas of COTS, Open Source and Service History, which could be used as well by other stakeholders performing low-risk operations
The WG will therefore develop the following standards:
1. Low Risk Applications, e.g. UAS, GA, VTOL
2. Integration of COTS, Open Source and Service History into Software.
This WG will work jointly with RTCA SC-240 and all documents produced will be published both by EUROCAE and RTCA as technically equivalent documents.

• Interferences at the edges of the RA band (3800-4400MHz) and (4400-5000MHz) including anticipated futures modulations and signal strength
• Interferences within the RA band (4200-4400MHz) including: other RAs interference on board the a/c, other RAs off board the a/c, WAIC systems and any other system within RA band that are located off board the a/c, WAIC systems and any other system within RA band that are located on board the a/c,
• Out of RA band interferences that could potentially have an indirect effect on the RA due to: level of signal, modulation, potential harmonics, RA antenna potential weakness (susceptibility), RA design potential weakness (resonance).

To meet this goal particular attention should be paid on
• Operational assumptions (Worst case a/c operational scenarios, worst case RF scenarios…)
• Interferences level assumptions (possible Modulations, Signal Strength, possible bandwidth, antenna pattern…)
• Technical characteristics of RA (Maximum input level of interference the RA equipment has to support, RA Antenna pattern within and outside RA band, RA Noise Floor level, RA chirp bandwidth, IF Bandwidth, Change Rate, Power emissions, Modulations…)

The last but not the least, RA is designed under the highest level of safety requirements. As a consequence a particular attention should also be paid on the definition of appropriate margins.

WG-119 will work jointly with RTCA SC-239.

The current ED-30 and DO-155 are not technically identical; one of the aims of this revision is to align these documents and to develop technically identical documents (ED-30A/DO-155A), which will supersede the current ED-30 and DO-155.

The latest developments in Europe in support to the modernisation of ATM led to the development of 2 important documents, the Airspace Architecture Study report and the European ATM Master Plan, 2020 edition whose subtitle is “Digitalising Europe’s Aviation Infrastructure”. The AAS Transition Plan provided more details on the timeline and the required elements to progress towards this digitalisation.
One of the key common elements of these strategic documents is to implement virtualisation, automation and digitalisation of ATM, in particular via virtual centres.
Virtual centre technologies and concepts are expected to support the increase of resilience and adaptability of the European ATM Network in terms of capacity and cost efficiency. Internationally agreed standards are needed to support the successful implementation of virtual centres.

The WG is tasked to develop standards and related deliverables to support the implementation of the virtual centre concept.

This activity is covered by the TWP 2020, section 4.3.

The WG is intended to provide guidance to ensure that the radio frequency (RF) characteristics of aeronautical Communications, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) systems use the spectrum efficiently while respecting the necessary safety margins. The guidance is intended to facilitate any future evaluation of compatibility with other systems and ensure that the usage of the allocated spectrum is as efficient as possible, fully taking into account the specificities of aeronautical CNS systems. The deliverables are envisaged to be referenced by EASA, other CAAs, ICAO, and national/international spectrum regulators, as appropriate, in guidance material for aviation systems.
