The project aims at establishing new methods and techniques of processing of the digital signals for universal effective and strong plans of navigation and communication in the aeronautical and aerospace domains. New standards in avionics are in study and several arguments are in favour of the adoption of the software radio. This project aims at the integration of multiple systems of navigation and communication in a unique equipment minimizing the busy space, at the weight of the avionics, the number of rooms(parts,plays) and incorporating new more effective management systems of the air space ( ADS-B), the everything guarantor directly in the international programs of reduction of greenhouse gases ( GES). The aeronautical / aerospace industry asks for a new approach by using a single generic system, reprogrammable and universal replacing the multiple radios and the present antennas on a plane. The new system will allow a simultaneity of functioning of several systems on a platform of flexible development and intended for the future applications. The project will handle with the integration of the systems DME, transponder Mode S and of a radio wide band, inside software architecture getting closer to the antenna. This architecture will allow the redeployment at request of features according to the phase of the flight, and the minimization of the electromagnetic interferences, the length of cables, and number of connectors and antennas. The idea being to convert the signals RF to the antenna and to transmit them in basic band towards the generic radio for the digital processing. The prototype will be estimated in laboratory by simulations and during flight using a specialized bench test supplying conditions of operation real and allowing to validate the performance of protocols with the real infrastructures systems and aeronautics. The project will contribute to the international community by defining new avionic standards, will pursue the efforts of Canada in the reduction of the GES and will create new high-technology uses. The developed technologies can apply to infrastructures grounds or airborne.
