Solving DAL-A Safety Certification Challenges for Military Avionics Systems

Start Date:6/1/2021

Start Time:11:30 AM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


Avionics hardware and software continue to get more complex as they add capability to cockpit systems and ease of use to pilots. In tandem, complexity also mounts regarding the process of certifying these multicore, graphics-processing, and other avionics products and systems. This webcast featuring industry experts will cover various approaches and solutions for certifying these solutions to conforming to Design Assurance Level (DAL) A in military helicopters, fighter jets, VTOL platforms, and unmanned aircraft systems.
