DDC-I and Vector Software Sponsor OpenSystems Media Webcast on Navigating the Hurdles of DO-178C Development for Avionics Systems

Phoenix, AZ. February 12, 2015. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will co-sponsor a webcast along with Vector Software on developing DO-178C software for avionics systems. The webcast, moderated by John McHale at OpenSystems Media, will be conducted on March 4 and be available free of charge to software engineers and engineering managers interested in best practices for DO-178C software development and certification. To register for the webcast, visit http://www.bitly.com/MarchEcast.

DO-178C is now the standard for virtually all new software flying today. Developing DO-178C avionics software, however, adds a significant effort over standard industry practices. Depending on a company’s current engineering processes, complying with DO-178C requires 20% – 70% of additional effort, most of which is centered not writing the software, but verifying that it meets all the requirements.

In this joint webinar, industry experts from DDC-I and Vector Software will provide fast-paced technical guidance, helping developers and managers navigate the nearly 600 new pages of DO-178C. The webinar will also examine best practices for DO-178C and showcase development and certification tools that can be used to enhance productivity while complying with DO-178C guidance.

Deos is a safety-critical embedded RTOS that has been certified to DO-178 DAL A since 1998. Featuring deterministic real-time response, the time and space partitioned RTOS employs patented ‘slack scheduling’ to deliver higher CPU utilization than any other certifiable safety-critical COTS RTOS. Deos was built from the ground up for safety-critical applications, and is the only certifiable time and space partitioned COTS RTOS that has been created using RTCA DO-178, Level A processes from the very first day of its product development. Deos provides the easiest, lowest cost path of any COTS RTOS to DO-178 Level A certification, the highest level of safety criticality.
