Welcome to the ARINC 818 Academy

Created with Great River Technology's Experience-Based Knowledge

This ARINC 818 Academy is a learning platform developed by Great River Technology (GRT) to combine video instruction on ARINC 818 protocol & standard alongside both basic and comprehensive GRT product information and tutorials. 

The ARINC 818 Standard

The ARINC 818 video interface and protocol standard manages high-bandwidth, low-latency, uncompressed digital video transmission. Jon Alexander and Tim Keller of Great River Technology participated in the development of this protocol.

Today it is the proven commercial standard and military de facto standard for high-performance video systems. The Airbus A400M and A350XWB, the Boeing 787, and the KC-46A tanker all employ ARINC 818, as do avionics projects in Brazil, Canada, China, France, India, Israel, South Korea, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

ARINC 818 video systems include infrared and other wavelength sensors, optical cameras, radar, flight recorders, map/chart systems, synthetic vision, image fusion systems, heads-up displays, heads-down multifunction displays, and video concentrators. These video systems are used for taxi and take-off assist, cargo loading, navigation, target tracking, collision avoidance, and other critical functions.
