the International S-Series Specifications Suite Incl. S1000D

The world’s first IPS/ILS User Forum, incorporating ALL S-Series specifications including S1000D – will take place from Monday 20th to Thursday 23rd September 2021 in Vienna (Austria). It will be the first User Forum worldwide for IPS (Integrated Product Support), also known as ILS (Integrated Logistics Support), bringing together ALL relevant S-Series specifications (S1000D, S2000M, S3000L, S4000P, S5000F, S6000T and SX000I as well as ASD-STE100) in one single event and with enough time for each of them!


The programme of this event is managed by ASD’s PSSG (Product Support & Specifications Group) together with the international ILS Council (aka the IPS Council), in cooperation with AIA. Together they established a joint User Forum Task Team (IPSTT) that will soon release the official Call for Abstracts.

This event will be hosted by the Austrian Aeronautics Industries Group (AAI) – in cooperation with Prime Sponsor HICO – on behalf of ASD (AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe) and also in close cooperation with AIA (Aerospace Industries Association of America) – the two parent organisations of the international IPS/ILS Council.
