AERTEC presents its technology for connected cabins and aircraft electrification in Hamburg


  • The international company AERTEC participates in the international fair Aircraft Interiors Expo, which took place from 6 to 8 June in Hamburg and where the latest trends and developments of aircraft interior design and equipment were exhibited.
  • AERTEC has a wide range of technology solutions for aircraft electrification and connectivity enhancement to show its commitment to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Aircraft Interior Expo is the main international fair focusing on presenting the latest developments, progresses and trends of aircraft interior design and equipment. The fair started last 6 June in Hamburg and brought together 400 exhibitors from all around the world, including AERTEC

AERTEC, an international company specialised in aerospace technology, presented from its stand 6C80/A its services and developments portfolio that focuses on improving aircraft connectivity. Its constant innovation within the MEA framework (More Electric Aircraft) has made AERTEC one of the main engineering companies specialising in design and development of smart and dynamic power distribution solutions for aircraft, contributing to the net-zero carbon emissions challenge by 2050. It has developed an electric power controller with state-solid technology and components capable of reaching 540 VDC that distribute high-voltage power in the aircraft, with the aim of further increasing this DC voltage to higher levels. 

Operating on a 540 VDC entails greater energy efficiency and a significant decrease in energy losses compared to traditional power distribution systems. This results in a greater flying range, which is crucial for both commercial airliners and military aircraft. Furthermore, it also ensures safer and more reliable power distribution. By using a higher DC voltage, failure in the electrical supply is minimised and system stability is improved. In addition, its modular design and real-time monitoring capabilities enable rapid problem identification and resolution, helping to reduce down times and maintenance costs. 

AERTEC is one of the few Spanish companies specialised in the development of innovative on-board systems, which covers the areas such as avionics, certifiable on-board software, guidance systems, navigation and monitoring. AERTEC implements advanced HW/SW avionics models for developing on-board computers, data concentrators and operational IMA-based (Integrated Modular Avionics) SW for critical aircraft systems. The company also designs and develops new wireless connectivity systems for managing and distributing the data generated from new generation IoT modules along the aircraft and other cabin sensors. 

AERTEC’s technological developments focus on integrating and increasing the use of technology in the cockpit, which is defined as disruptive cockpit. In this sense, international engineering is making progress in the digitalisation as a tool to facilitate and make the tasks of all aircraft professionals safer, participating in the AS-DISCO (Audio Suite for Disruptive Cockpit Demonstrator) European project, whose main aim is to digitalise the management of audio communications between the aircrew and the ground staff. Until now, these communications have been managed manually by the pilots. AERTEC responded to this challenge by designing Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) software in accordance with the ARINC653 standard, which includes all necessary functionalities to automate cockpit procedures using innovative solutions for human-machine interfaces (HMI) and software-defined radio (SDR).

AERTEC has had an office in Hamburg for the last five years, where it works on manufacturing engineering and electrical systems projects, advanced aerial mobility projects and major R&D&I activities. 


AERTEC is an international company specialising in aerospace technology with over 25 years of experience. It is active in the aerospace industry, defence and airports. It designs on-board systems for aircraft, power distribution solutions for More Electric Aircraft (MEA), unmanned aerial platforms and guidance solutions for the military and civil fields. It develops TARSIS, a tactical Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) platform with light design and unique technology designed for observation, surveillance and support for military operations. 

It is a Tier 1 supplier of engineering services for AIRBUS in its three divisions: Commercial Aircraft, Helicopters, and Defence and Space, in its different factories worldwide. It covers the industrial cycle of aircraft, it monitors and manages manufacturing programmes, develops test systems and implements technological solutions for plant control. It is involved in the world’s major aeronautical programmes: A400M, A330MRTT, A350XWB, A320, Beluga and the C295, among others. 

In airports, it is considered to have the most aeronautical engineering, from the study of investment, planning and design, to consultancy in airport operation and in the improvement of processes in the terminal area and airfield. It innovates in the Advanced Air Mobility field. 

It operates in more than 200 airports from more than 40 different countries in all continents. AERTEC has offices in Spain, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Colombia, Peru, the United States and the United Arab Emirates, with a workforce of over 700 professional aeronautics experts.
