Qualification of an avionics software according to DO-178B and support of the development processes (software design, coverage testing, documentation and configuration management).

The software is part of a monitoring system that constantly checks the parameters of the DC/DC converter and relays them via a bus-system to the system. The software has been qualified to DAL E for the prototypical use, while documentation for a later certification to DAL (Design Assurance Level) C has been prepared as well.

GTD GmbH has several years of experience in software projects for the avionics industry and qualifies software from DAL A (highest level of criticality) to DAL E.
