The SCADE ARINC 661 Solutions help airframers and developers to create and certify, up to DO-178B Level A, ARINC 661-compliant cockpit display systems and user applications. The SCADE ARINC 661 solutions are built on top of Esterel Technologies' SCADE Suite and SCADE Display.

“The SCADE ARINC 661 Solutions tool will allow us to master procedures that will bring greater control over the development of our ARINC 661-compliant CDS and UAs drive the vendor selection process and validate the final solution,” says Carlos Berto, program manager, R&T Systems and Integration at Embraer.

“Having knowledge of and control over the entire CDS project will drive down costs. This tool will also allow us to create processes that will enable UA development in house for future aircraft, states,” Berto says.
