DDC-I Webcast Showcases Develop Once Deploy Everywhere Architecture to Slash DO-178C Avionics Development and Certification Costs

Phoenix, AZ. November 10, 2015. DDC-I, a leading supplier of software and professional services for mission- and safety-critical applications, today announced that it will host a webcast with OpenSystems Media on reusable I/O software development for DO-178C avionics systems. Moderated by John McHale at OpenSystems Media, the webcast will showcase a DODE (Develop Once Deploy Everywhere) data distribution architecture that reduces avionics software cost by enhancing software reuse and streamlining DO-178C certification.

The webcast will be conducted on November 17 and be available free of charge to software engineers and engineering managers interested in best practices for avionics software development and certification. To register for the webcast, visit http://bitly.com/Nov_Ecast.

Aircraft avionics are I/O intensive, driven by sensors throughout the aircraft that provide a variety of data types, formats and rates, which vary from aircraft to aircraft. DDC-I’s data distribution infrastructure isolates applications from the details of the underlying I/O subsystem, enabling developers to craft DO-178C software that can be readily upgraded and reused across multiple platforms with minimal impact on the software and its DO-178C verification evidence.

DDC-I’s DO-178 certifiable real-time operating system, Deos, has been delivering Develop Once Deploy Everywhere (DODE) software capability to the avionics industry for over 15 years. DDC-I’s data distribution infrastructure allows program managers to maximize reuse, contain costs, and deliver high-quality certifiable software on schedule. The Deos publish/subscribe/data distribution system provides versatile data connections, communicating information in a way that abstracts engineering units, data types and data rates. This separation enables software developers to isolate their software from I/O volatility, thereby minimizing the impact of I/O changes, enhancing reuse and preserving DO-178C verification evidence (such as testing, reviews and analysis) from aircraft to aircraft.

More on Deos
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.
