ED Decision 2016/006/R

Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) - CS-ETSO / Amendment 10

This Decision addresses an efficiency, level playing field, technological and economic issue related to the introduction of the European technical standard for the integrated modular avionics (IMA) platform and modules.

The specific objective of this Decision is to issue an ETSO-2C153 on the IMA platform and modules, to improve the efficiency and the transparency of the certification process. The ETSO-2C153 will offer the IMA platform/modules manufacturers, the possibility to obtain ETSO authorisations at platform/modules level, independent of the aircraft.

ETSO-2C153 is different from the corresponding FAA TSO-C153, therefore, it will be part of Index 2 of CS-ETSO Subpart B.
