The AFDX® backbone network technology is licensed for the helicopter market

Summary

A new licensing agreement for the Airbus-patented AFDX® backbone network technology was confirmed with Italy’s Selex ES S.p.A. at this week’s Paris Air Show, bringing an end-system manufacturer into the official AFDX® data network partner community and broadening its use to the helicopter market.

The AFDX® backbone network technology enables safe and secure data transfer for the aviation industry – including airborne applications on airliners, business jets, military airlifters and helicopters. This communication standard, first developed by Airbus for its fly-by-wire A380 jetliner, is more advanced than previous protocols.
Airbus has committed to making the AFDX® data network licenses available on a non-discriminatory basis to all seeking the use of this standard, and is proactively enforcing its patent protection rights with support of the EADS Technology Licensing initiative – an operation of Airbus’ EADS parent company.
