Developing a Modern Airline Cyber Program
A panel of commercial airline cyber security experts will give a step-by-step guide to developing a modern cyber protection program capable of addressing emerging connected aircraft and organizational IT threats. Topics to focus on include:
· Incident Response
· Threat Modeling
· Penetration Testing
· Vulnerability Management
Opening Individual Case Study
Connected Cockpit Track | Connected Plenary: ACARS Over IP
Data communications traffic on the global Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) services network has increased significantly as data intensive newer generation airplanes enter service. In recent years, newer air to ground and satellite-based IP data links have been proven as having faster transmission speeds and more bandwidth to transmit data from air to ground at lower costs than ACARS has historically been capable of. This plenary session will provide a real life look at going from installation, to operation and results of flying commercial airplanes that use ACARS over IP and the savings that have occurred as a result.
Connected Cabin Track | What's Your Connected Aircraft Net Promotor Score?
Airlines use net promoter scores to measure their brand loyalty. As connectivity becomes ubiquitous with the cabin passenger experience, how does this newer aspect become accounted for within an airline’s net promoter score? Here a number of airlines discuss challenges such as take rates and other factors that make accounting for connectivity difficult in a net promoter score?
Connected Cabin Track | Solutions Providers: The Cyber Aspect of Our Solutions
Cybersecurity is huge for airlines is they bring their fleets online. However, the major concerns for airlines is whether enough cybersecurity is being built into solutions and services. Here, we talk to some of the main satellite operators and service providers, to find out what levels of cybersecurity they are building into their services.
Connected Cockpit Track | Connected ROI: Airplane Engine Health Monitoring
When it comes to transitioning from reactive to predictive maintenance, no one component or system on the aircraft is more crucial than the engine. Here, a panel of experts give a multi-faceted perspective about how an airline can go from investing into new connectivity technology to today to using that connectivity to optimize their flight operations tomorrow.
Connected Cabin Track | Technology Tracks
Connected Cockpit Track | Connected Turbulence Avoidance
An interactive case study looking at how airlines can use new aircraft connectivity platforms and pilot tablet applications to avoid turbulence. The case study will show how the operator went from installation, to testing to actually operating with the use of IP connectivity updates on pilot tablets to provide real time turbulence avoidance with ascend and descent alerts. The session will also focus on extensive audience and social media questions and answers.
Connected Cockpit Track | Connected ROI: Fuel Burn Reduction
At the Global Connected Aircraft Summit we have been hearing for years how commercial airlines can use IP connectivity through air to ground or satellite networks to reduce the amount of money they’re spending on fuel. In 2018, jet fuel prices surged causing airlines to see their fuel costs balloon by the millions. While connectivity might not be able to combat market adjustments, could its use help pilots fly more efficiently in ways that reduce their aircraft fuel burn? This plenary session will establish the reality of this connected aircraft equation.
Connected Cabin Track | Passenger Experience: Learning from Others
We live in an age of experience, always wanting more from our ‘experiences’. By becoming connected, airlines can improve overall experiences. In this panel, we bring airlines, as well as, one or two other industries together to talk about how connectivity can make a difference.

Airline Led Roundtables
In this section, successfully debuted in 2019, key airline executives come up with major talking points that they would like to discuss and lead roundtables in them, so you can join them in a more informal setting to discuss the key areas for airlines as it relates to connectivity.
Connected Cabin Track | Pros and Cons for Different Satellite Solutions
Connected Cockpit Track | Autonomous Distress Tracking: Ready for 2021?
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has introduced new minute-by-minute aircraft tracking requirements for airplanes experiencing certain distress conditions that take effect Jan. 1, 2021. What is the rule, and what civil aviation regulators have mandated it for new production and in-service aircraft? How can new connectivity or software platforms prepare airlines to comply with the new requirements? Learn the answer to these questions and more from this panel of experts.

Lunch and Keynote
Connected Cabin Track | Artificial Intelligence Panel
Connected Cockpit Track | Airline Case Study: Network Security STCs
A commercial airline case study showing how airlines can obtain supplemental type certifications associated with adding new connectivity to their aircraft fleet. Specifically, the presentation will focus on how an airline can obtain an STC in this area without explicitly going through an OEM or other third-party.
Connected Cabin Track | Artificial Intelligence Case Study
Connected Cockpit Track | Developing Your Own Connected Apps
The proliferation in capabilities associated with aircraft interface devices now provide operators with the ability to use air to ground and satellite-based networks to develop their own connected EFB apps.
Mainframers: Building Connectivity in Next Generation Aircraft
The likes of Boeing and Airbus are critical to the whole connectivity equation. They are building the aircraft of the future which will in essence be fully networked themselves. Here we talk about the developments in building the next generation aircraft and what technologies airframers are looking to build into these aircraft.
Business Jet Market: Dynamics for Connectivity Explained
The business jet market with its high end business customers is where connectivity is a must. However, the dynamics of this market are very different form the commercial airline market. Here, we take a look at this market, talking to key end users, and see what is driving their business plans.
