why IMA ? Improved software re-use Improve modularity Improve portability Flexibility and fault tolerance Reduce the number of LRU’s Support Multiple DO-178B Safety Levels on a single microprocessor Enables incremental certification … Optimizations of physical equipment SWaP Consumption
some IMA KPIs Boeing has highlighted that, by using the IMA approach, it was able to shave 2,000 pounds off the avionics suite of the new 787 Dreamliner, versus previous comparable aircraft. Airbus declared that its IMA approach cuts in half the part numbers of processor units for the new A380 avionics suite and reported a reduction 60 Km on the A380 aircraft cabling. Rockwell said “it’s not just the IMA modules themselves, and reducing the number of LRUs. IMA brings more efficient network for the aircraft” Honeywell claims that IMA design can save 350 pounds of weight on a narrow-body jet: equivalent to two adults
