Lockheed Martin chooses Presagis VAPS XT-178 software for development of DO-178C-compliant human-machine interfaces under the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command MC-130J program

MONTREAL, Quebec, 15 Feb. 2012. Lockheed Martin Aeronautics engineers are using the Presagis VAPS XT-178, a DO-178B Level A human machine interface (HMI) tool from Presagis, to develop embedded graphics displays for the Special Mission Processor (SMP) under the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) MC-130J Increment 3 program. Presagis VAPS XT-178 will run on the MC-130J Variant and offer a path to compliance under the new DO-178C guidance. 

The COTS DO-178B, object-oriented, avionics HMI development tool can be used for ARINC 661 and non-ARINC 661 programs. Its runtime architecture helps to produce displays that will run on a variety of software and hardware environments.

“By greatly reducing the effort required within the software design, coding, and testing phases of the graphics display development lifecycle, VAPS XT-178 dramatically shortens the time required for developing certifiable embedded software products,” says Robert Kopersiewich, vice president of Embedded Graphics & Mission Critical Solutions at Presagis. “We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with Lockheed Martin by providing them with software that not only meets certification requirements, but also reduces time and costs.”
