RTI Presents "Slash Avionics Integration Costs With DO-178C Certifiable Connectivity Software" Complimentary Webinar

RTI and Verocel Partner to Discuss Leveraging DDS to Achieve Stringent Avionics Safety Certification

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2015) - Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity platform company, today announced it is hosting a complimentary webinar, "Slash Avionics Integration Costs with DO-178C Certifiable Connectivity Software," in partnership with Verocel, a leading independent software verification company serving the global safety-critical industry.

Avionics systems have traditionally used custom software to communicate between different applications and subsystems. The need for building certifiable systems based on a COTS and open architecture foundation has intensified due to the convergence of several trends:

  • The increasing scale and complexity of avionics software, which is driving up the cost of developing, supporting and certifying custom communication solutions
  • Adoption of open architectures, such as those based on FACE and UCS, to reduce on-going integration and upgrade costs
  • The need for safety certification, in particular DO-178C, to enable UAS integration into the National Airspace System

This webinar will introduce a solution: RTI's DO-178C certifiable implementation of the Data Distribution Service (DDS) connectivity standard. RTI's DDS solution is available with a complete DO-178C Level A Certification Data Package (CDP) produced by Verocel.

DDS replaces custom communications code with high-level, standards-compliant APIs. This significantly reduces the amount of code users otherwise have to develop and certify while also simplifying application and integration logic. DDS supports many open architecture initiatives, including the Future Airborne Capabilities Environment (FACE) and UAS Control Segment Architecture (UCS).

David Barnett, Vice President, Products and Markets at RTI, will review the DDS standard, the design tenets underlying Connext DDS Cert, and its support for FACE. George Romanski, CEO at Verocel, will review the contents of the CDP, the steps required to incorporate it into your system certification and the work remaining for the system integrator.
