The course is determined for students studying Aeronautics and Astronautics specialization. It provides detailed knowledge about airborne monitoring and control systems used on boards of aircrafts and spacecrafts nowadays, GPWS, ISN, FADEC, and EEC included. Full automatic monitoring and controlling systems of aircraft and spacecrafts propulsions are taught as well. Furthermore, the course focuses on descriptions of hierarchical structures of these systems and their networks. Partially it focuses on types of flight simulators and unmanned aerial vehicles, and military applications.

Course outlines:

1. Analog and digital airborne monitoring systems and their hierarchical structures
2. Principles and methods for assuring the safety of the airborne systems and subsystems
3. Methods and means for avionic systems programming
4. Avionics systems and their software certification procedures
5. Means and subsystems of aircraft and spacecraft monitoring systems
6. Propulsions automatic control systems (FADEC, EEC etc.)
7. Flight data recorders
8. Primary and secondary airborne displays and their usage with EFIS, ECAM, EICAS, GPWS
9. Inertial navigation systems (INS) - principles, types and used sensors
10. INS integration into control systems
11. Systems of unmanned aerial vehicles and small aircrafts 12. Principles and systems for a crew training
13. Systems of military aircrafts and satellites
