To reduce the aircraft weight and maintenance costs while guaranteeing system performance and reliability, an alternative avionic communication architecture based on Ultra Wide Band (UWB) and TDMA protocol is proposed to replace the back-up part of safety-critical avionics network. The analysis and performance optimization of such a proposal is tackled as follows. First, appropriate system modeling and timing analysis, using Network Calculus and Integer Linear Programing (ILP) approach, are provided to evaluate the end-to-end delays and verify system predictability. Then, an optimization approach to find the optimal TDMA cycle duration, which minimizes the end-to-end delays, is proposed. Finally, the efficiency of our proposal to enhance the system performance is validated through a realistic avionic case study.
