To develop process management standards for systems and equipment used in the field of avionics. Avionics includes electronics used in commercial, civil and military aerospace applications. To act as the US Technical Advisory Group for International Electrotechnical Committee 107, Process Management for Avionics Business environment The avionics industry is increasingly dependent on electronic components, equipment, and systems designed and manufactured for other industries, over which we have little control. We must develop standard processes to use these components, equipment, and systems, so that their quality and reliability are assured in aerospace applications. Market demand Airline customers, regulatory agencies, and defense agencies demand assurance that avionics products will operate reliably.
The Compact Model Council was formed in August, 1996, for the purpose of promoting standardization in the use and implementation of Compact models. Charter To promote the international, nonexclusive standardization of compact model formulations and the model interfaces. Vision Standardized compact models for all major technologies so that customer communication and efficiency can be enhanced. Standard interfaces so that models can be tested faster and implemented easier. Better compact models for the latest technologies, allowing leading edge design development cycles to shorten. Strategy Examine, promote and standardize compact modeling efforts based upon business needs. Encourage developers to dwell on current and near-term problems that will advance compact modeling. Provide industry resources for monitoring/mentoring compact model development. Provide a standardization process to the compact model developers.
The mission of the Enterprise Information Management and Interoperability Committee is to address the opportunities created by advances in information technology to enhance the capability of the TechAmerica companies and our Government associates to productively use data and information as the effective basis for decisions and actions.

The G-11 Committee recommends solutions to technical problems in the application, standardization and reliability of parts, except for active solid state devices. This is implemented by evaluation and preparation of proposed advancements in specifications, standards and other documents, both government and industry, to assure that parts are suitable for their intended applications and for procurement. The committee holds three regular meetings a year.
The G-12 Solid State Devices Committee develops solutions to technical problems in the application, standardization, and reliability of solid state devices. This is implemented by evaluation and preparation of recommendations for specifications, standards, and other documents, both government and industry, to assure that solid state devices are suitable for their intended purposes.
The G-33 Committee prepares positions on government policies, practices, specifications, and standards dealing with technical data, drawing practices, and configuration management practices. It promotes understanding of configuration and data management principles, and develops standards. The committee provides innovative solutions and educational services through workshops and related publications. The committee holds three regular meetings a year and co-sponsors an open workshop in the Fall.
Vision: Consistent affordable, reliable and maintainable products that satisfy the user's requirements and expectations. Mission: Provide ample "how to" guidance to industry and government, for the four Objectives of ANSI/GEIA-STD-0009-2008 in developing reliable products and systems, successfully demonstrate them during test and evaluation, and sustain them throughout the system/product life cycle. Guiding Principles: Industry and government shall be provided tangible, high value added products, with visible benefits Individual committee members shall, at all times, conduct themselves in a highly ethical manner in all activities and relationships with other committee members, companies, and government entities. Maximum advantage shall be taken of similar or related materials developed by other associations, societies, and functions to minimize or preclude similar or duplicative activities.
In concert with, and in support of, systems engineering, the Human Systems Integration (HSI) Committee focuses on processes and requirements to assure satisfactory human-system integration, including human factors Engineering (HFE); manpower, personnel and training (MPT); environment, safety and occupational health (ESOH); personnel survivability and habitability. The primary focus areas of the GEIA G-45 HSI committee are: defining, assessing and optimizing human-system interfaces; maximizing human and human-system performance and; minimizing personnel-driven customer ownership costs. Important functions of the G-45 committee include: evaluating new and revised Government documents; maintaining Human engineering Bulletin (HEB)-1; HSI gap analysis (current versus required capabilities); and advising senior GEIA and Department of Defense representatives about current and emerging HSI issues, problems and opportunities. The committee members also review and coordinate comments on existing and proposed government and industry standards, specifications and other documents concerned with the design of equipment and facilities for human interaction, habitation and life support. Most Committee activities are accomplished through correspondence. The Committee has one regular meeting each year, during the Annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.
The G-46 Committee deals with the system-oriented discipline that ensures electromagnetic compatibility in electronics design. The Committee develops technical criteria and procedures to guide the design engineer. Its work also includes spectrum management and conservation, secure communications, and electromagnetic emission, susceptibility, control and characterization. The committee holds one regular meeting a year.
G-46 Chair: Bob Davis, Lockheed Martin
G-46 Vice Chair: Clifford Hauser, Raytheon
G-46 Secretary: Karen Dyberg, Raytheon
The G-47 Committee serves as an industry focal point for systems engineering by developing and maintaining standards, coalescing industry positions, preparing and coordinating positions on government policies & practices, and promoting sharing of best practices on the engineering of systems. G-47 is working on a revision to ANSI/EIA-632 and is seeking input from users to help them during this revision process. G-47 is working on a new Reliability Standard and is seeking input from users to help them during this process.
The G48 Committee develops technical and program criteria, procedures, and methodology for the application of system safety engineering at all phases of the life cycle of a system or equipment. It documents and disseminates standard analytical techniques for enhancing system safety and conducting industry surveys for the purpose of improving techniques for testing, collecting, and distributing historical operational system safety data.
IBIS is a standard for electronic behavioral specifications of integrated circuit input/output analog characteristics. In order to enable an industry standard method to electronically transport IBIS modeling data between silicon vendors, simulation software vendors, and end customers, this template is proposed. The intention of this template is to specify a consistent format that can be parsed by software, allowing simulation vendors to derive models compatible with their own products. This Committee meets every three weeks on IBIS technical development, IBIS utilities development, IBIS parser/checker development, and for exchanging general information on good modeling practices and for dealing with all issues related to IBIS. IBIS Committee Task Groups exist to address Quality issues, Cookbook creation, independent Model Review and Advanced Technology Modeling techniques. The IBIS Open Forum also holds several IBIS Summit meetings worldwide throughout the year for face-to-face discussions and technical presentations
