Helping Aerospace Companies achieve DO-178C compliance

DO-178C – Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification is a standard used in the aerospace and military/defense industries to promote reliable implementation of safety critical software. DO-178C is the primary document by which certification authorities like the FAA, EASA and Transport Canada approve all commercial software-based aerospace systems.

Over the last couple of years, makers of Military/Defense Aircrafts are seeing increased demand from their customers to build DO-178C compliant products. DO-178C compliance is highly rigorous and achieving certification is always challenging. Understanding these complex restrictions and guidelines are necessary to obtain FAA certification.  

Our services are enabling our customers to leverage model-based development, testing and verification to meet certification requirements. EXB Solutions offers a comprehensive review of existing standards, consulting, expertise and engineering services to help you achieve solutions for DO-178C compliance.
