Department of Avionics Engineering

About Avionics Department

The term avionics is a combination of the words aviation and electronics. Avionics are the electronic systems used on Aerospace Vehicles such as aircraft, satellites, and spacecraft. The systems include navigation, communications, display and management of multiple systems, and hundreds of other systems fitted to Aerospace Vehicle for performance of different functions. They may have implementation of Artificial Intelligence paradigms and development of new software based controls for autonomous systems. The systems may be as simple as a searchlight for a patrolling helicopter to complicated systems like fully functional tactical system for an airborne early warning platform integrated with on ground control center for live relay of information. The field of Avionics plays a vital role in modernization initiatives related to life cycle support of Aerospace Platforms. Cockpit of manned aircraft and control room of an unmanned aircraft are typical locations for avionic equipment.
