FREE WEBINAR: DO-178C Advanced Data Coupling and Control Coupling Analysis techniques for highly critical software

For highly critical and complex software applications in modern avionics the necessity to provide assurance that DO-178C Data Coupling and Control Coupling within a software application has been adequately exercised, during verification activities, is an important activity in the elimination of potential errors. How to exactly satisfy the Data Coupling and Control Coupling objective in DO-178C has often been misunderstood.

This presentation will provide a detailed approach to systematically identify all data couplings and control couplings so that performing the analysis in a complete and consistent way becomes achievable. The strategy identified can be extended to include highly complex platforms, such as IMA and Multicore processors, and enable the identification of additional verification that may be required on such complex platforms.

FREE WEBINAR: Avionics Project Estimation Strategies

Accurate estimates are one of the most critical aspects of any successful project. They provide a framework for project costs, resources, and timelines. This is even more true in the avionics domain: without correct project estimates, very bad surprises can happen, including massive delays and critical additional costs, let alone project failure. If data is the new money, its real value resides on a pertinent use of metrics and analytics, which are in turn the raw material for appropriate decision making. In this webinar, ConsuNova team of FAA DERs and EASA CVEs will be sharing the most relevant lessons learned during their +25 years of experience working in projects with top avionics companies worldwide.

FREE WEBINAR: Discussing the Art of Requirements Writing for safety-critical application

More than 75% of today’s avionics and safety-critical systems still write requirements in textual format; all for many good reasons.  Writing requirements is not an easy task.  It requires not only the knowledge of system, but also talent in setting the exact behavior of the system, software or hardware in a consistent, complete and testable manner.  Although DO-178C and DO-254 set objectives on what requirements should cover, these guidelines are not designed to give engineers tools or know-how on ways to structure, nor methods.

This ConsuNova webinar provides engineers methods and guides on what are the best ways to capture their requirements independent of tool usage and independent of implementation.  Attendees will gain ample knowledge on levels of requirements (from aircraft down to low-level requirements).  We will demonstrate attributes of good and bad requirements to reduce further assumptions and eventually reducing verification cost.  This webinar aligns the art of writing requirements to the expectations from ARP 4754A, and how to develop compliant requirements covering the objectives in DO-178C and DO-254.

WEBINAR: Discussing the Art of Requirements Writing for safety-critical application

FREE WEBINAR: Opportunities and Obstacles in Certification of eVTOL

The "Urban Air Mobility Market is projected to grow from USD 2.6 billion in 2022 to USD 28.3 billion by 2030. The increasing demand for an alternative mode of transportation in urban mobility for commercial applications and technological innovations in unmanned technology are the major factors driving the market.  Similarly, the global market for eVTOL aircraft is estimated to be USD 8.5 million in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 30.8 million by 2030.  The Europe urban air mobility market is projected to grow at 19%  during the forecast period. The growth of this market is mainly driven by the growing need for green energy and noise-free aircraft and the increasing use of eVTOL aircraft for cargo applications and increasing demand for an alternative mode of transport.

Worldwide certification authorities, such as the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are trying to harmonize certification paths in this fast pace development.  Although there are scattered information in this regards, there are varieties of aircraft design each with unique offerings, routes, missions and modes of operations.  On top of that, there are flavors of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) involved in either segment.

Although it is more obvious what requirements should be followed during software development (DO-178C) and hardware development (DO-254), the confusion comes in early architecture (ARP 4754A) and safety assessments (ARP 4761).  As ConsuNova helping few of the UAM and eVTOL design organizations, we have learned few things to share to steer you in a smoother direction.  This ConsuNova webinar provides engineers guidance opportunities and signals obstacles in certification of eVTOL.
