DECWG Governing Board

A Government-Industry Collaboration Addressing the Needs of Future Aerospace Propulsion Control Systems.

DISTRIBUTED ENGINE CONTROLS WORKING GROUP (DECWG®) VISION:

Enable affordable distributed engine controls for dual use aeronautic integrated propulsion, power and thermal management system applications that are environmentally robust, reduce weight and volume, permit implementation of advanced control algorithms, that facilitates future modular, scalable and obsolescence-proof control infrastructures.

Objectives:

  • Provide a forum for the US government and aeronautics industry to collaborate, in a pre-competitive environment, on the advancement of technologies required to implement distributed controls in aeronautic propulsion, power and thermal management systems.
  • Leverage the efforts of the US government and private industry, both large and small businesses, to provide the technical skills and funding required to design, build and test representative hardware required for these systems.
  • Promote development of fundamental high temperature electronics and packaging materials required to implement affordable distributed control systems.
