Technology You Can Rely On  

Superior technological standards and absolute reliability and precision are essential prerequisites for working on avionics systems. Complying with these requirements is crucial for safetycritical systems and processes. 100-percent safety is the alpha and omega in this domain.

Avionic systems are used for air-traffic control and aircraft engine control. They are also installed in cockpit, cabin and supply systems. Moreover, support systems exist that assist aeroplane and helicopter pilots in handling complex processes and manoeuvres in mission- specific applications.

Scope of Services

  • Software engineering in accordance with DO-178B and DO-178C (DAL A-E)
  • Assist the creation of planning documents according to DO-278 (AL5)
  • Support of the approval process
  • Systems engineering
  • Verification and validation
  • Floating point error analysis
  • Tool qualification
Avionik - Standards

Safety Considerations Govern the System Architecture ...

Safety and reliability are core requirements for any avionic product in addition to the functional requirements. This is equally true for the mechanical and electronic equipment and the software. The system architecture is therefore characterized by redundant dissimilar hardware and software solutions that must meet very high standards and specifications. The most well-known currently valid standards are DO-254 and DO-178.

... and the Development Process

In our work with projects in these fields we combine superior technological know-how with absolute reliability and diligence in the development process. Our customers therefore appreciate both our technical qualification and our process know-how resulting for the most part from long-term project experience.
