AREVA TA selected SCADE Suite for final deployment within the “OURAGAN” program, RATP’s major signaling renewal project for the Paris Metro
After an extensive study of both existing and state-of-the-art technologies for designing safe and complex systems such as interlocking and Communication Based Train Control (CBTC), AREVA TA concluded that Esterel Technologies’ SCADE Suite affords the best opportunity to attain its uncompromising safety and performance objectives, whilst reducing both cost and time to market.
The SCADE Suite is currently being used by AREVA TA to design its i-CBTC signaling solution for final deployment within the
OURAGAN program; RATP’s major signaling renewal project for the Paris Metro.
We are confident that SCADE Suite is a vital part of the infrastructure that will allow us to be successful in our product development roadmap. Generally, we consider that model oriented design at system level is a very efficient mechanism to obtain safe systems with high performance; however, the benefits that we can achieve with the unique SCADE certified code generator save many man-hours that would, without SCADE, be spent performing unit testing activities said Bruno Dubois, Safe Transport & Equipment Product line manager at AREVA TA.
