Airborne Collision Avoidance System (ACAS) provides pilots with a system independent of air traffic control to detect the presence of other aircraft which may present a threat of collision. Where the risk of collision is imminent, the system provides an indication of a manoeuvre that will reduce the risk of collision. ...more on Wikipedia about "Airborne Collision Avoidance System"

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (also called ADS-B) is a system by which airplanes constantly broadcast their current position and altitude, category of aircraft, airspeed, identification, and whether the aircraft is turning, climbing or descending over a dedicated radio datalink. This functionality is known as "ADS-B out" and is the basic level of ADS-B functionality. ...more on Wikipedia about "Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast"
An autopilot is a mechanical, electrical, or hydraulic system used to guide a vehicle without assistance from a human being. Most people understand an autopilot to refer specifically to aircraft, but autopilots for boats and ships are called by the same name and serve the same purpose. ...more on Wikipedia about "Autopilot"
The Avidyne Entegra series of primary flight displays and multi-function displays are an all-digital replacement for conventional flight instruments. Marketed at and included in primarily light general aviation aircraft, Avidyne is making inroads into the corporate market with OEM positions on the Eclipse 500 and Adam A700 light jets. With its long list of general aviation OEM positions including Cirrus Design, Columbia, New Piper, and Symphony, Avidyne is now the world's leading supplier of integrated flight decks for general aviation. Entegra is also now flying on development aircraft at Spectrum and ATG Javelin. ...more on Wikipedia about "Avidyne FlightMax"
The onboard electronics used for piloting an aircraft are called avionics (AVI-ation electr-ONICS). Avionics include communications and navigation systems, autopilots, and electronic flight management systems (FMS). Onboard electronics that are unrelated to piloting tasks, such as video systems for passengers, are sometimes considered avionics as well. Many of these devices include embedded computers. ...more on Wikipedia about "Avionics"
Avionics software is embedded software with legally-mandated safety and reliability concerns used in avionics. ...more on Wikipedia about "Avionics software" http://www.shortopedia.com Dreamteam.
Barco N.V. ( ) is a display hardware manufacturer specialising in CRT projectors, LCD projectors, DLP projectors, LED displays and flat panel displays. Barco is an acronym that originally stood for Belgian American Radio COmpany. ...more on Wikipedia about "Barco"
Course Deviation Indicator (CDI) is an avionics instrument used in aircraft navigation to determine aircraft position relative to a navigation aid such as GPS, VOR and ADF; or to intercept and fly TO or FROM any of the 360 compass "radials" that emanate from the navigation aid. ...more on Wikipedia about "Course deviation indicator"

An Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS) is a type of electronic display (usually a CRT or LCD) fitted to the cockpit of an aircraft in order to display flight information. EFIS is more modern, more efficient, and easier to understand than the gauges that traditionally display information in older cockpits. EFIS is pronounced ee-fis. ...more on Wikipedia about "Electronic Flight Information System"
The FuG 227 Flensburg was a German passive radar receiver developed by Siemens AG and introduced into service in Spring 1944. It used wing-mounted dipole antennae and was sensitive to frequencies of 170-220 MHz. It allowed Luftwaffe nightfighters to home in on the Monica tail warning radar fitted to RAF bombers. ...more on Wikipedia about "Flensburg radar detector"
In avionics, a Flight Management System (often abbreviated FMS) provides many resources to a pilot of a sophisticated, high-performance aircraft. A typical FMS includes a navigational database, an interface to navigational recievers (including VOR, DME, and some form of inertial navigation system and/or a GPS reciever), an interface to the aircraft automatic pilot, a performance database, an interface to the aircraft's power plant systems through autothrottles and fuel-flow transmitters, and an interface to the aircraft's instruments, often in the form of a Flight Director and map display. ...more on Wikipedia about "Flight Management System"
The Garmin G1000 primary flight displays and multi-function displays form an integrated digital replacement for conventional flight instruments and avionics. Garmin is only allowing the G1000 to be installed in new general aviation aircraft, claiming that certifying and installing retrofitted cockpits would have cost and safety issues. ...more on Wikipedia about "Garmin G1000"
Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS) is a system designed to alert pilots if their aircraft is in immediate danger of flying into the ground. Another common name for such a system is Ground-Collision Warning System (GCWS). ...more on Wikipedia about "Ground Proximity Warning System"
In development of avionics, a hazard analysis is used to characterize the elements of risk. A hazard analysis is one tool withn the discipline of system safety engineering. The results of a hazard analysis will drive the methods used for development of a system, both hardware and software. ...more on Wikipedia about "Hazard analysis"
The KLN 90B is a GPS navigation system used in thousands of general aviation aircraft. The system consists of a panel mounted sensor/navigation computer, a data base cartridge, and an antenna. An altitude input is required to obtain full navigation and operational capabilities. Additional system components may be added or interfaced to the KLN 90B which increase its features and capabilities. Some of these optional components include an external course deviation indicator ( CDI) or HSI, RMI, fuel management system, air data system, ARTEX ELS-10 emergency locator transmitter ( ELT), autopilot, and external annunciators. The KLN 90B panel mounted unit contains the GPS sensor, the navigation computer, a CRT display, and all controls required to operate the unit. The database cartridge contains a vast amount of information on airports, navaids, intersections, special use airspace, and other items of value to the pilot. ...more on Wikipedia about "KLN 90B"
Knickebein was a radio navigation system used by the Luftwaffe early in World War II to aid bomber navigation. It was replaced with the X-Gerät (navigation) system. ...more on Wikipedia about "Knickebein (navigation)"

Microelectronics designed for environments with high levels of ionizing radiation have special design challenges. A single charged particle of radiation can knock thousands of electrons loose, causing electronic noise, signal spikes, and in the case of digital circuits, plainly incorrect results. This is a particularly serious problem in the design of artificial satellites, spacecraft, military aircraft, nuclear power stations, and nuclear weapons. In order to ensure the proper operation of such systems, manufacturers of integrated circuits and sensors intended for the ( military) aerospace markets employ various methods of radiation hardening. The resulting systems are said to be rad(iation)-hardened, rad-hard, or (within context) hardened. ...more on Wikipedia about "Radiation hardening"
A Technical Standard Order (TSO) is a minimum performance standard issued by the FAA for specified materials, parts, processes, and appliances used on civil aircraft. Articles with TSO design approval are eligible for use on the United States (US) Type Certificated Products. The TSO authorization or the letter of TSO Design Approval does not convey the installation approval. ...more on Wikipedia about "Technical Standard Order"
