# Avionics System Documentation
-We now organize our documentation according to avionics generation and launch. So "AV3-L10" means Avionics Generation 3 for Launch 10. "AV3-NEXT" means the next planned launch.
+We now organize our documentation according to avionics generation and launch in the format "generation-launch". Thus "AV3-L10" means Avionics Generation 3 that was flown on Launch 10.
## AV4-NEXT
-This is the planned system for our next flight, "L11", sometime in summer 2014. Although things have only incrementally changed since AV3, AV4 denotes the full move to Ethernet.
+This is the next system *planned* to fly on our, next flight, "L11", sometime in summer 2014. Although things have only incrementally changed since AV3, AV4 denotes the full move to Ethernet and the trend for smaller systems in order to eventually fit the CubeSat form factor.
