On April 24-28, 1995, UCLA Extension will present the short course,
"Modular Avionics", on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles.

The instructors are Erwin A. Ulbrich, MSEE, PE, McDonnell Douglas
Aerospace, Henry M. Daghighian, MScE, Teledyne Electronic
Technologies, Roy Farmer, MBA, Delco Systems, Mark E. Johnson,
MIM, Honeywell, William F. Kiczuk, Texas Instruments, Albert A.
Marcantonio, Raytheon, Kenneth J, Nerius, Harris Aerospace Systems,
John R. Newport, PhD, Systems Analysis Group, and Mohammed M.
Tafreshi, MSEE, Boeing.

This course provides engineers, scientists, managers, and marketing
specialists with a comprehensive overview of modular avionics
technology.  Lessons learned from the last forty years are presented,
as well as current experiences from integrating the latest generation of
modular avionics.  Other topics include system consolidation, system
partitioning, cooling, intimate relation between the cockpit and avionics,
new paradigms for system organization and data visualization.  The course
also discusses parallel development of the two existing systems, military
and commercial, and how they might be combined as "dual use" systems
in the future.  Software development is covered from the standpoint of
available toolsets, compilers, debuggers, etc.  However, the course
DOES NOT cover programming.  Lectures also explore how the
technology will progress into the first decade of the 21st century.

Specific topics include: Government and Commercial Standards;
Honeywell Modular Avionics: IMA and VIA Technology; Integration of
Processing Functions: The New Architecture; Display Technologies and
Advanced Avionics; Modular Avionics and the F-16 Modular Mission
Computer; Military Modular Avionics Built to Commercial Specifications;
Fiber Optic Communications for Avionics Applications; and Applications
of IMAs on the Boeing 777 Airplane.
