ASHLEY Project

ASHLEY stands for Avionics Systems Hosted on a distributed modular electronics Large scale dEmonstrator for multiple tYpes of aircrafts

SYSGO was a contributor of the SCARLETT project and is now a partner of the follow up project ASHLEY that officially started on October 1st, 2013.

In search for a more competitive, multiple types of aircrafts, IMA based, avionics platform solution, the Europeanaerospace industry has recently initiated the IMA2G paradigm thanks to the EC funded SCARLETT project. This latter successfully validated a first underlying set of IMA2G concepts (Separate Core Processing resourcesfrom I/O resources, introduce resource segments typology of electronics solutions, provide platform services layer to function supplier etc.), thus creating the expected Distributed Modular Electronics (DME) breakthrough to lay IMA2G solid rock foundations.

The goal of the work within ASHLEY is to go on carrying out research on top of the existing SCARLETT state-of-the-art in areas where innovations are likely to make the most of DME growth potential.

ASHLEY innovations will be supported by advanced processes, methods and tools for an efficient implementation in the future and validated thanks to the ASHLEY Large Scale aircraft representative Demonstrator.

By progressing as described above the European Industry will be in a position to offer a common secured multi-domain avionics platform solution across a worldwide range of aircraft types, at a higher level of maturity at entry into service.

SYSGO's main role within the project is to get PikeOS ready for being embedded into the next generation of avionics and for being the basement for open world server that is the ASFC next generation.

The project involves the following partners: ACQ Inducom, Airbus Operations GmbH, Airbus Operations Ltd, Airbus Operations SAS, Alenia Aermacchi, Dassault Aviation, Diehl Aerospace GmbH, EADS-IW, General Electric Aviation, GosNIIAS, GTD Sistemas de Informacion, Iguassu Software Systems a.s., Intertechnique (ZODIAC), Lucerne University, Messier Buggati Dowty, National Aerospace Laboratory, Sagem Défense Sécurité, Selex ES S.p.A., SINTEF, Thales Avionics
