Curtiss-Wright Preparing for Moon & Mars Missions
Curtiss-Wright is working with NASA and aerospace leaders to return Americans to the Moon and send astronauts to Mars in the early 2030s
Optimizing Avionics Reliability With Dissimilar Redundant Architectures
Rick Hearn explains how the key computing elements of an avionics system must all be designed with safety in mind and endure stringent testing to prove they can meet the required Design Assurance Level (DAL).
Curtiss-Wright, Green Hills Software and CoreAVI Collaborate to Deliver FACE-Aligned, DO-254/178 Safety-Certifiable Solutions
Support for Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY-178 tuMP RTOS and CoreAVI’s graphics drivers on Curtiss-Wright rugged modules speeds the integration of high-performance avionics systems
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.
