Rockwell Collins, NASA team to develop new analysis tools

  • 22-Aug-2013 12:10 EDT

NASA has selected Rockwell Collins to develop a new software analysis tools for verifying the safety of flight critical systems for future commercial aircraft. Under the terms of the one-year contract, Rockwell Collins will develop a set of software analysis tools, conduct demonstrations, and make recommendations to NASA. Avionics systems are increasing in complexity as new capabilities are added that reduce carbon emissions, increase navigation performance, and prepare for the FAA NextGen airspace initiative. This increased complexity brings the need for new methods for analysis that will assure that the system will operate safely under all conditions.
