Importance of Testing Test Automation and Automated Test Equipment

Posted by: ALTEN Global Systems Team | 22 June, 2020

Testing is one of the major activities in a development life cycle of a product. Automation of testing will help reducing manual intervention and increasing the productivity. Automated Test Equipment (ATE) helps in automating the testing of the system/LRU during development and production. ATE’s can be a simple bench top setup or a set of test equipment....Read More

Obtaining Structural Coverage from HSIT

Posted by: Sandeepkumar Ainapur | 10 Feb, 2020

Traditionally, the software tests are performed at different levels to achieve the DO-178B/C objectives. The Hardware-Software Integration tests (HSIT) are performed to get the High-Level Requirements coverage and Low-Level Requirement tests are performed to get the Low-Level requirements coverage and the structural coverage at the source code level....Read More

Optimized Code for Embedded Avionics Applications

Posted by: Hari Lakshminarayanan | 10 Mar, 2021

Running optimized code in embedded application is very important from different angles – achieving higher throughput, better memory utilization, lower power consumption and allowing scalability, among others. With advancements in processor technology, newer processors are constantly being rolled out. It would not be economically viable to keep porting application software into newer processors to take advantage of the newer technology. Hence it is vital to extract the best out of the currently selected hardware. ....Read More

The use of a Parameter Data Item impacts various processes as described in DO-178C.A Parameter Data Item is a separate configuration item, that influences the behaviour of the software without modifying the Executable Object Code. A Parameter data item provides a flexible, yet controlled, way to configure and reconfigure the system......Read More

Navigation and Traffic Management in UAV

Posted by: Rakesh Nayak, Hari Lakshminarayanan | 08 June, 2021

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are arguably the Aviation Industry’s one of the most exciting and promising developments. The expectations of UAS capabilities are boundless, but their safe implementation and integration to regulated airspace needs more supervision and support. UAV, UAS, RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft System) are all terms that are often used interchangeably.......Read More
