AdaCore announces extended support for Wind River VxWorks - News

March 12, 2019
AEROSPACE TECH WEEK 2019 -- MUNICH. Software-development and -verification tool company AdaCore has announced the roadmap of its flagship GNAT Pro Ada Development Environment for the latest version of the Wind River VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS), with immediate support for the ARM 64-bit processor.

Portable, reliable, and efficient concurrency: Ravenscar Ada tasking and the FACE safety profiles - Story

November 28, 2018
Airborne systems that need a small footprint or must comply with an industry assurance standard such as DO-178B [1] or DO-178C [2] are sensitive to size and complexity costs in the run-time support libraries. To answer these needs, the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE?) Technical Standard [4] has designated the Ravenscar subset of the Ada programming language?s tasking features as one of the acceptable concurrency approaches for a software component that must satisfy safety and/or security assurance requirements.

Choosing the optimal software solution for long-life unmanned systems - Story

April 24, 2018
Defense platforms are expected to perform over a long operational life that can span several decades. Developing high-reliability, safety-critical software that is built to last requires comprehensive tools from trusted industry partners. Robust software-development solutions can help engineers design and develop new long-life unmanned systems and can enable upgrade of systems on currently fielded unmanned platforms to extend their life cycle.

Toward safety and security in FACE components: High assurance with portability - Story

March 15, 2018
The FACE [Future Airborne Capability Environment] approach is a joint government-industry software standard and business strategy for acquisition of affordable software systems that promotes innovation and rapid integration of portable capabilities across global defense programs. FACE - originally avionics-focused only, but has now broadened to encompass a wide catalog of applications for use across the entire spectrum of real-time systems - does not directly address issues of quality or fitness for purpose. Because these traits are obviously important in practice, the natural question for component developers is how to meet both the explicit FACE objective of portability and any domain-specific requirements for software reliability, safety, and security. Part of the answer is to choose appropriate software-development technologies and language(s).
