Fly By Wire Case Study

The customer was looking for a partner:

    1. To work on Fly-By-Wire (FBW) – a system that replaces the conventional manual flight controls of an aircraft with an electronic interface.
    2. To lead the expansion of an extensive engineering team dedicated to embedded flight control computer software within a tight timeframe.
    3. To bring on board Verification and Validation (V&V) Engineers who can fill in the existing process, a task beyond the client’s independent capabilities.
