INTERTECHNIQUE selects SCADE Suite™ for the Airbus A380 Fuel Management System
INTERTECHNIQUE, a ZODIAC Group company, is deploying SCADE Suite for its airborne software development projects, including for the A340, A380 and A400M developments.
Following the successful implementation of SCADE solution for the A340 Electric Load Management Unit, Intertechnique has standardized on SCADE, as part of a two-year collaboration with Esterel Technologies.
The decision marks Intertechnique’s confidence in the value of this development environment, which enables to create safe designs, validate them as soon as during the design phase and generate embeddable code far faster than with traditional approaches, while meeting the stringent requirements of the DO-178B standard.
Jerome Rame, Vice-President of Intertechnique, confirmed:
SCADE Suite and KCG, its DO-178B-qualified C code generator, have proven to be a very efficient way to implement DO-178B-compliant applications on the systems we provide to the aerospace industry with safety-critical applications up to level A.
Moreover, when specifications are supplied by our customers in the SCADE format, the turnaround between a specification change and SCADE-generated C code is almost instantaneous, which makes our interactions with our customers very efficient.
SCADE and KCG right-use model has been extensively discussed with the European certification authorities (ESEA), and the resulting process has shown significant savings in verification activities, Olivier Graff, Software Methodologies and Tools Coordinator, Intertechnique
