Abstract—The current state of the avionic system wiring composition, set-up and resulting network complexities in terms of poor localization capability and security, have become issues of great concern. Emerging area of research for next generation wireless avionic systems have become prominent as more research works are continually made in solving these drawbacks. This letter proposes an impulse radio ultrawideband (IR-UWB) network technique for next generation wireless avionic systems (NGWAS).
The IR-UWB technique aims at alleviating the aforementioned drawbacks by selecting the best path from the available paths on the basis of bit error rate (BER). The letter also investigates and compares the performances of the IR-UWB standardized channels in four different model environments of CM1 to CM4.
It is understandable that the current redundant wired links in the avionic system industry would be substantially reduced as a result of the IR-UWB wireless implementation, while an increased throughput performance would be maintained.
