Avionics

Parasoft Development Testing Platform (DTP) is the most comprehensive solution available for achieving compliance with aerospace and avionic industry standards. Parasoft's broad array of Development Testing capabilities help organizations reduce the time and effort needed to comply with aerospace and avionics industry standards, meet software assurance requirements, and detect defects and vulnerabilities. Our unique policy-driven approach establishes a repeatable, monitored and auditable process.

  • Meet DO-178 B/C guidelines
  • Meet Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) software development requirements
  • Achieve your Information Assurance requirements
  • Produce traceable, defect-free software
  • Leverage policy-driven rule sets based on critical industry standards

Achieve DO-178B/C Compliance

Parasoft’s Software Development Compliance solution includes development testing tools, such as static code analysis, unit testing, code review, and more that support DO-178B/C. Our first-of-its-kind software Development Testing Platform helps software engineers in aerospace and avionics build quality into their code through:

Support for JSF++AV Coding Standards

Parasoft’s solution provides out-of-the box code analysis for compliance with the Lockheed Martin Joint Strike Fighter Air Vehicle C++ Coding standards. To promote fast remediation, any detected coding standard violations are prioritized and assigned to the appropriate engineer with direct links to the problematic code and a rule description. This process not only supports compliance, but also helps engineers develop a deeper understanding of the standard.

Demonstrated Tool Qualification and Protection

Automated defect prevention tools, such as Parasoft’S Development Testing Solution for C and C++, must be qualified to ensure consistent and accurate verification and validation results. Parasoft Professional Services works with organizations to demonstrate that all components of our Development Testing Platform operate as expected and without adversely impacting other tool functions.

Information Assurance Support

Parasoft’s capabilities meet Information Assurance requirements as specified in the National Defense Authorization Act 2011. Capabilities include:
  • Automated software vulnerabilities detection throughout the development lifecycle
  • Testing web applications for security exploitation
  • An automated and auditable process to test and verify code

Parasoft's Policy Driven Approach

Policy-driven development bridges business expectations with specific quality practices to ensure that software development teams avoid shortcuts that may compromise reliability, security and performance. Get started by defining business-critical aspects of the application, such as compliance with industry standards, and easily setting your policies in the platform.
Parasoft automatically correlates requirements with automated and manual tests, source code, and development tasks, resulting in unprecedented real-time visibility into development processes, on-demand access to verification status, and bi-direction requirements traceability. Our centralized reporting system documents improvements and tracks status so teams know exactly which tests need to be rerun and which code needs to be re-reviewed.
Aligning software development activities, such as static code analysis, unit testing, peer code review, coverage analysis, and runtime error detection, with your organization’s business goals reduces risks associated with your software development lifecycle. The benefits include increased traceability, accountability, and early defect prevention, which helps you avoid costly recalls, and litigation or damaged market position.
