Civil Avionics Systems is an in-depth study and explanation of avionics as applied to civil aircraft. Avionics covers analogue and digital electronics, sensors, signalling, and computers that transmit to and control the operations of the aircraft.

Avionics includes the technology, systems development, electrical systems, sensors, communication, navigation, flight control, displays, engine and utilities control, and is also the integration of all these elements.

Ian Moir and Allan Seabridge are both highly experienced in the aircraft industry and are also involved in devising and delivering training courses. Their direct and accessible style, along with the input of an international team of technical advisors, ensures that Civil Avionics Systems is an authoritative reference text. 

  • Provides a uniquely comprehensive source of information
  • Illustrated throughout with line drawings and photographs, some in full colour
  • Explains and explores the latest developments in avionics technology, including FANS – Future Air Navigation Systems
  • Includes a chapter on displays written by Malcolm Jukes, an internationally respected expert.

Engineers in the airline industry, designers, manufacturers, operators, maintenance engineers, electronic component suppliers, engine manufacturers, air traffic controllers, navigation engineers, aircraft inspectors, accident investigators, and those studying become part of the aerospace industry will all find Civil Avionics Systems invaluable.

About the Author:

Ian Moir BSc, CEng, FRAeS, FIEE served twenty years in the Royal Air Force as an Engineering Cadet/Officer, retiring with the rank of Squadron Leader. He then went on to work for eighteen years at Smiths Industries, Cheltenham, UK. Here he had responsibilities for the introduction of avionics technology into aircraft utilities systems on both military and civil aircraft. He was Programme Manager for the integrated Utilities Management System on the UK Experimental Aircraft Programme (EAP); and technology demonstrator for the European Fighter Aircraft. Ian's principal successes at Smiths Industries included the selection and development of new integrated systems for the McDonnell Douglas/Boeing AH-64C/D Longbow Apache attack helicopter and Boeing 777 (Queens Award for Technology - 1998), both of which are major production programmes. Ian has over 40 years' experience in the aerospace industry. He is currently an International Aerospace consultant, operating in the areas of aircraft electrical and utilities systems and avionics. Allan Seabridge BA, MPhil is currently the Chief Flight Systems Engineer at BAE SYSTEMS, a position held since 1998. Before that he was the Avionics Integrated Product Team Leader on the Nimrod MRA4 programme for five years. He has worked in the aerospace industry for over 30 years in flight systems and avionic systems engineering, business development, and project management. He has been involved in a wide range of military fast jet, trainer, and ground or maritime surveillance aircraft projects. Allan has worked in many international collaborative programmes in Europe and the United States, and he has led a number of national and international engineering teams. This has led to an interest in all aspects of system engineering capability - the practice of engineering, the processes and tools employed, and the people and skills required. Malcolm Jukes BSc, FRAeS, FIEE has over 35 years' experience in the aerospace industry, mostly working for the Smiths Group at Cheltenham, UK, Among his many responsibilities as Chief Engineer for Defence Systems Cheltenham, Malcolm managed the design and experimental flight trials of the first UK Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) and subsequently the development and application of shadow-mask CRT technology for multi-function, head-down displays on the F/A-18, AV8B, Eurofighter Typhoon and EH101 aircraft. In this role, and subsequently as Technology Director, he was responsible for product technical strategy and the acquisition of new technology for Smiths UK aerospace products. One of his most significant activities was the application of AMLCD technology to civil and military aerospace applications. Malcolm is now an aerospace consultant operating in the areas of displays, display systems, and mission computing.
