Safe Avionics and ATM Future Evolution (SAAFE) - Enable increasingly effective paths to approval for advanced software and systems by developing methods, models, and tools that provide justifiable confidence in safety claims while reducing the effort required to verify and validate complex safety-critical aviation and ATM systems throughout these systems lifecycles.More »
• As the demand for more software-enabled functions increases, the ability to reduce costs associated with developing software for digital systems in new aircraft enables introduction of desirable new functionality.
• Reduction of costs to correct latent defects and errors discovered late in the lifecycle, which are usually more expensive to correct than those detected earlier in the lifecycle
• Reduction of costs associated with the development and testing of new software systems enables the introduction and implementation of new complex software functionality.
• Discovering defects earlier in the lifecycle reduces the significant costs associated with late discovery.
