Slashing Avionics Software Development Time by Over 50%

Digital Engineering, March 2020

Physical Optics Corporation (POC) is using Ansys simulation software solutions to develop avionics for U.S. military aircraft. Ansys SCADE Solutions for ARINC 661 Applications will enable POC to reduce development time and accelerate certification. U.S. Department of Defense legacy aircraft equipped with aging avionics and controls require costly upgrades to add new capabilities. As avionics software becomes increasingly sophisticated, complying with complex requirements, satisfying safety standards and reducing costs present major development challenges.

Ansys SCADE for ARINC 661 provides model-based software development and automatic qualified code generation to quickly create and certify avionics software. Development time can be greatly reduced while adhering to ARINC 661, DO-178C and the FACE Technical Standard.
