A practitioner's guide to DO-178B certification and the emerging DO-178C standard
Mark Richardson, LDRA
This webinar aims to give an insight into what is required in order to certify Avionics software to DO-178B and DO-178C. The DO-178B standard has been in use since the 1990’s and has been very successful at ensuring that Avionics software is as safe as possible. There have been a few places where the standard needed some clarification and a number of “CAST” documents have been written to add the appropriate clarification. Also over the past ten years or so, Avionics software has started to make use of some of the new technology available such as the Unified Modeling Language, object-oriented programming and formal methods. As a result a new standard known as DO-178C is at the time of writing very close to being released.
