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 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.
The Connected Passenger Experience: What Airlines Are Looking For?
Most airlines have now some form of connectivity in place. While it can be used in terms of vast improvements in terms of operations, it is also key to making significant improvements in the passenger experience. Passengers are now more aware than ever that you CAN get connectivity on flights. So, what are expectations? What are the next steps for airlines to make this experience better and how can the technology industry enable these ambitious strategies to come to fruition?
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.
Airline Case Study: Allegiant's Transition to Skywise
In 2019, Allegiant Air began the process of shifting its aircraft data strategy to the Airbus Skywise platform. Here, Allegiant’s Director of Engineering, Ankit Nanda, gives a presentation on what that process is like from an end-user perspective.
Connected Air Cargo
For the first time ever, the Global Connected Aircraft Summit features a look at the new era of connected air cargo, to provide an understanding of how an air cargo airline can use connectivity to track the status of time sensitive items onboard in real time using a combination of satcom and specialized sensing equipment.
Connected Turbulence Avoidance
An interactive presentation providing an overview of the International Air Transportation Association’s (IATA) Turbulence Aware platform, a cloud database collecting real time turbulence reports from participating airlines.
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.
Connected ROI: Airplane Health Monitoring Plenary
When it comes to transitioning from reactive to predictive maintenance, there are a variety of methods and technologies available to help operators improve the way they monitor the health of critical aircraft components and systems. 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.

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 Flight Operations: What's Reality
Now that high-speed broadband connectivity is becoming the norm for commercial airlines, there are opportunities for flight operations divisions to embrace newly available links and enable pilot efficiency gains. However, while the promise of high-speed connectivity enabling a fully connected cockpit has long been a known desire for airlines, there are few examples of this happening in reality.
This panel of flight operations leadership will look to answer some of the following questions and more:
- Are the broadband data rates available today economically viable for supporting advanced flight operations applications like real-time streaming of graphical weather?
- What are chief technical pilots and flight operations directors looking for that’s not available in today’s connected EFBs?
- How is the IT side of flight operations becoming increasingly important to supporting the development, deployment and maintenance of new connected flight operations applications?

Artificial Intelligence in Connected Aviation: The Next Steps
There is little doubt that airlines are starting to embrace the AI revolution, with many airlines looking at how they can use AI to boost efficiency and operations. In this panel, we talk about cutting edge strategies in AI and how airlines can use the ‘Connected’ aircraft to unleash the full benefits of power and AI.
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.
Artificial Intelligence Case Study
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.
