SYSGO to Provide Software for Airbus A400 M's Loadmaster Control System

8/12/2005 - Rheinmetall Defence Electronics (RDE) transfers delivery and certification of the basis software for cargo compartment electronics of Airbus A400 M to SYSGO AG. Besides the delivery of the operating system, the volume of the order includes the design of software and documents for the certification of the so-called Loadmaster Control system according to standard DO-178B for safety critical applications.

The military cargo airplane Airbus A400 M has been ordered by several European states at EADS and will be equiped with a Loadmaster Control System by RDE, which has to be certified according to DO-178B. According to this standard requirements, must be exactly defined, the design of the operating system as well as the software must be extensively documented and the funcitionality must be tested in detail, before it can be presented to the related aerospace authorities.
