DO-178B, Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification is a document dealing with the safety of software used in airborne systems.
The FAA applies DO-178B as the document it uses for guidance to determine if the software will perform reliably in an airborne environment, when specified by the Technical Standard Order (TSO) for which certification is sought.
It was published by RTCA, Incorporated, and development was a joint effort with EUROCAE who publish the document as ED-12B.
Oaksys specializes in carrying out independent verification and validation (IV&V) as per DO-178B guidelines. The safety critical/mission critical requirements are clearly understood under these standards and the software is validated at the appropriate level of criticality (We have experience on Level A, B, C, D).
Our service offerings cover the Verification, Validation & Testing activities associated with the complete Software Development Life cycle (SDLC) and a variety of SDLC models. Our portfolio of services spans across Software Testing (Unit / Component / module, Integration, System, HSI, UAT etc), Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) and Automated testing. As part of these activities, number of tools (both COTS and in house) such as LDRA, RTRT, PRQA, TestCast etc. are used based on the project requirements.
