Title: Deep Learning Demystified
Abstract: The Booz Allen / NVIDIA Deep Learning Demystified session is a 30-minute lecture that provides an overview of deep learning ideal for the executive audience. The lecture covers the key terminology, FAA and Aviation industry use cases, how deep learning differs from the previous algorithmic approach, and how a deep neural network gets trained, optimized, and deployed. You’ll learn how deep learning can be applied to challenging problems, what types of problems benefit most from deep learning, what skills and knowledge are needed to use deep learning, and the characteristics of successful deep learning projects.

Title: Why Do We Make Innovation So Hard?
Moderator: Lisa Sullivan, Palantir
Panelists: TBA
Abstract: The challenges of today are often solved with the processes and technologies of the past. In complex systems like our NAS, we must ensure the technologies, processes, and policies we put in place are well thought through and are carefully considered, but are we over-correcting? In our safety-critical culture where new ideas are often met with reluctance, are we missing out on opportunities? It’s become difficult for our industry to adopt and implement new technologies and ideas from the commercial and markets. Why do we make innovation so hard? 
 
Join our esteemed panel members for views on this topic where we will discuss how we as a safety-focused industry can more effectively harness innovation to gain the strategic improvements for which we all strive.

Title: AeroMACS: Standardized Solution Enabling Secure Connectivity Worldwide at the Airport Surface
Abstract: Aeronautical Mobile Airport Communication System (AeroMACS) is a wireless broadband technology that supports the increasing need for data communications and information sharing on the airport surface for both fixed and mobile applications. Based on the mature WiMAX standard (IEEE 802.16e), AeroMACS operates in the protected and licensed aviation spectrum band from 5091 MHz to 5150 MHz, which has been designated on a worldwide basis by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) at the World Radio communication Conference in 2007.

AeroMACS benefits extend beyond a higher throughput in ground communications. AeroMACS enables ground-to-aircraft communications to support both current applications and new ones that require more bandwidth. The technology has multiple advantages over currently used wireless solutions: quality of service (QoS) functionality to optimize traffic management; security and privacy to protect passengers and the air system; standards-based solution; scalability and interoperability to support global deployments across aircraft types and airports.

Major airports throughout the world lack the communications capacity to meet today’s airport traffic demands. To this end, having gone through over a decade in the standardization process, AeroMACS has been adopted worldwide to support such emerging and evolving airport surface communications needs. AeroMACS is a key technology to the aviation industry to improve communications on the airport surface by providing increased transmission of Air Traffic Control (ATC) and Airline Operations Communications (AOC) to relieve traffic, congestions, and delays, and to support the safety and regularity of flight. 

AeroMACS provides the capacity and efficiency needed to sustain demand for communication between aircraft, vehicles and ground infrastructures. Its ecosystem is gaining momentum and the number of deployments is increasing. AeroMACS creates a new airport (surface) data communication system that is robust, efficient, secure, safe, and flexible.

In the US, the FCC on June 2019 has adopted an NPRM proposing service rules for the AeroMACS. The NPRM proposes specific technical and licensing rules that are required before commercial AeroMACS operations can become routine at U.S. airports.  The WiMAX Forum offers its President, Declan Byrne, as its representative speaker to give a presentation that will analyze the FCC NPRM, AeroMACS advancements, implementations and focus on a comprehensive view of all AeroMACS deployment activities around the World. The WiMAX Forum will make this an appealing presentation to anyone interested in the innovation Communication Networks related to the Aviation Industry.
