The FACE [Future Airborne Capability Environment] approach to reducing life cycle costs for the military is based on reusing software components across different platforms and airborne systems. The FACE Technical Standard addresses this issue through a reference architecture and data model, well-defined interfaces, and widely used underlying industry standards (IDL, Posix, ARINC-653).
NEW YORK. Software development and verification-tool maker AdaCore announced that it acquired Componolit (Dresden, Germany), effective February 1, 2021.
SOLOMONS, Maryland. Officials from the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) and the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) Consortia will be leading the Open Group FACE and SOSA Consortia Expo & Technical Interchange Meeting (TIM) virtual event next month on March 23, 2021 from 11 am to 4 pm Est.
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona. Modernization efforts that require consolidating multiple proven software systems onto a single intelligent edge platform are difficult. Fortunately, there are strategies that allow you to maintain your software integrity and partitioning while taking advantage of cutting edge software development technology in modern avionics systems. In this webcast on December 1, 2020 at 11 am Est., subject matter experts from Wind River and AdaCore will demonstrate how you can map your existing architecture to guest operating systems on hypervisors, by using Wind River’s Helix Virtualization Platforms and software development tools from the compiler experts at AdaCore.
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona. Boeing, in partnership with the U.S. Army, AdaCore, CoreAVI, Presagis, and Real-Time Innovations (RTI), will demonstrate an integrated Future airborne Capability Environment (FACE) commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solution stack covering cockpit displays, graphics systems and data transport connectivity. This stack enables high mission capability using the world’s latest and most advanced avionics technologies designed to accelerate RTCA DO-178C DAL A safety certification and FACE conformance. The webcast, "Accelerating Avionics Design & Testing through FACE Conformance: An Integrated Model by Boeing, U.S. Army & Aerospace Leaders," will cover the stack and take place December 10, 2020, at 2 pm est. The presenters are Marc Moody, Technical Fellow, Boeing; Christopher Edwards, Systems Engineering Lead, U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM); Chip Downing, Senior Market Development Director, Aerospace & Defense, RTI; Dr. Benjamin Brosgol, Senior Technical Staff, AdaCore; Michael Pyne, Director, Strategic Accounts & Solutions Architect, CoreAVI; and Matt Jackson, Technical Product Manager, PRESAGIS.
Updating and patching security vulnerabilities to limit the attack surface for the military’s embedded systems – especially legacy ones – can be a daunting task.
NEW YORK. AdaCore, which makes mission-critical software development and verification tools, announced that Airbus Helicopters (Marignane, France) has selected the GNAT Pro tool suite and the Ada programming language to develop new software components for the VSR700 prototype project; the VSR700 is Airbus Helicopters’ tactical unmanned aerial system (UAS) aimed at the demanding requirements of modern navies and armies around the world.
