Ordinary aircrafts rely on point to point wire connection to transmit data. These wires add additional weight to the aircrafts and thus, the fuel cost is increased. Aircrafts released in recent years used AFDX protocol to transfer data within the aircraft. AFDX is a deterministic network transfer protocol used in aircrafts to ensure the quality of service (QoS) on the network and reduce the wiring needed. However, the specification of AFDX only defines the required performance without providing the methods to achieve it and hence there is a room for research. The motivation of this paper is to investigate and analyse impact of different scheduling policies of End System on the performance of a real avionic on-board data network running AFDX protocol.
