SAN FRANCISCO, 24 May 2010. Software analysis tools specialist Coverity Inc. in San Francisco is sponsoring a Webcast called "Trust But Verify: Best Practices To Demonstrate Software Integrity in Safety Critical Projects" at 2 p.m. eastern time (11 a.m. pacific) June 8 on the Military & Aerospace Electronics Website (www.milaero.com).
Aggressive development schedules for safety-critical code development due to decade-long aerospace and defense industry growth, as well as high standards for integrated system performance, confronts the aerospace and defense industry with much supply-chain complexity from contractors, subcontractors, systems integrators and suppliers. Coverity's hour-long Webcast June 8 can help systems developers learn how automated software analysis helps address resulting software complexity.
The U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor jet fighter, for instances, consists of about 1.7 million lines of software code, while the F-35 joint strike fighter has about 5.7 million lines of code to operate its onboard systems. Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner requires about 6.5 million lines of software code to operate its avionics.
Today's aerospace and defense companies can benefit from a scalable process to obtain visibility into the potential defects in their projects, as well as measure and track the status of potential defects. Coverity's Webcast June 8 covers key barriers of achieving software quality in Aerospace and Defense industry; actions necessary to implement fixes to prevent defects across safety critical projects; and how an automated software analysis helps address growing software complexity.
