A Model-Based Solution for Avionics Systems Engineering - The New Industry Imperative - White Paper

Navigational systems, radar, braking systems, autopilot, collision avoidance and other technologies must work seamlessly together to ensure consistent, reliable performance and passenger safety. However, because these technologies are provided by diverse suppliers, the task of integrating and managing them has become extremely challenging. The sophistication required to manage system-level engineering today means that manual processes and simple tools, such as Excel spreadsheets, are no longer sufficient. Fortunately, a new model-based approach enables system engineers to quickly build a reliable architecture and generate a fully realized interface control document (ICD) that satisfies all regulatory and technical requirements.
