Pratt &Whitney has Selected Aonix ObjectAda/Raven™ For its Next Generation Military Jet Engine for JSF

6/14/2002 - Aonix, a member of the Gores Technology Group and a leading provider of Ada 95 software development environments and safety critical solutions, has announced that Pratt & Whitney has successfully certified its newest commercial jet engine, the PW6000, using the ObjectAda®/Raven™ run-time system. “Pratt & Whitney originally selected the ObjectAda/Raven product for use on the PW6000, commercial jet engine program, in 1998 following an extensive evaluation. Aonix was selected for a variety of reasons including the usability of the tool set and the technical support that they were able to provide,” states Bret Lynch, Manager, Real Time and Embedded Software for Pratt & Whitney. “The main discriminator, however, was the safety-critical domain experience of the company and their ability to meet the standards required for incorporation into a DO-178B Level-A software system.”
