SWaP-Optimized: The Right Way to Add Advanced Surveillance Capabilities to Rotorcraft
Making the modern video equipment work together with the platform’s legacy systems can be costly and complex. The time and effort needed to integrate a myriad of legacy and modern video formats and resolutions can both add program risk and delay deployment.
Testing Safety-Certifiable Software
Given its complexity and the critical applications for which it is designed, embedded avionics software must undergo a rigorous approval and testing process before it can be approved as airworthy.
