RTCA has teamed with Wichita State University's National Institute for Aviation Research (WSU-NIAR) to offer high quality training covering RTCA's DO-160G, Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment. The course will provide an understanding of the use of DO-160G and how it fits in with the greater picture of requirements, design, certification and Technical Standard Orders (TSOs).
Course participants will gain a clear and relevant understanding of the applicable FAA regulations, advisory material, certification procedures, design approaches/trade-offs, inspection and conformity requirements, as well as details of the necessary parts of a test plan, test report, compliance plan and compliance report. A strong focus is placed on the reduction of risk, cost and schedule throughout the design/ certification process, by use of targeted design and increased first-pass success on design and testing.
The course is split into two independent tracks, Track A and Track B.
Track A: Focuses on Non-Electrical Environmental Conditions.
Track B: Focuses on Electromagnetic, RF and Power Input Effects.
See the course schedule for further details.
In addition to a comprehensive course manual, each training course attendee will receive a copy of RTCA's DO-160G, Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment, supporting material, and will participate in real-world exercises applying the knowledge learned from the class.
