Next-gen aviation systems see push for automation, multicore processors in the certification process
As the complexity of aviation systems rises, certifying safety-critical systems in manned and unmanned aircraft has pushed engineers towards automation and working in parallel to increase the efficiency of the process. Multicore processors are playing a major role in this push, along with added tools to ease the process. However, challenges remain as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) work toward streamlining the process.
MUNICH, Germany. Sessions on Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR), the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA'S) NextGen initiative, and Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS–B) technology highlight the first day of the Aviation Electronics Europe conference and exhibition to be held April 20-21 in Munich, Germany at the MOC Event Center.
MUNICH. Performance-based navigation, open architectures, DO-254 & DO-178 compliance, are some of the topics in the lineup for the Aviation Electronics Europe show being held March 25-26 in Munich, Germany at the MOC Event Center.
DO-178C Brings Advanced Modeling, Object Oriented Programming and Enhanced Traceability to Avionics Software Development
Since its introduction in 1992, DO-178B has been the defacto standard for certifying avionics software. Subsequently, however, avionics software complexity has increased dramatically, software development technology has improved by leaps and bounds, and DO-178B has lagged behind.
