Interconnection optimization for multi-cluster avionics networks

Abstract : The increasing complexity and heterogeneity of avionics networks make resource optimization a challenging task. In contrast to many previous approaches pursuing the optimization of traffic-source mapping and backbone network analysis, our work presented herein mainly focuses on the optimization of interconnection devices for multi-cluster avionics networks. In this paper, we introduce an optimized interconnection device, integrating novel frame packing strategies and schedulability analysis to enhance the communications between an AFDX-like backbone network and various peripheral sensor/actuator networks in terms of resource savings. The performance analysis conducted on a representative avionics communication architecture highlights the efficiency of our proposal to save resources particularly consumed bandwidth. These latter is considered as an important feature for avionics applications to guarantee easy incremental design during the long lifetime of an aircraft.
