Airbus Helicopters Selects Vector Software as Software Testing Solution Provider

Vector Software, the world’s leading provider of innovative software solutions for testing safety and mission critical embedded applications, has announced that Airbus Helicopters has selected VectorCAST™ as their standard corporate test solution for the company’s division in Germany. The company chose the VectorCAST/Cover, VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada tools to ensure that they are able to use a fully automated regression test environment to continually verify the correctness of their code.
Airbus Helicopters in Germany develops software for the UH-Tiger military helicopter, and the firm needed to quickly achieve DO-178B structural coverage while using limited resources to develop User Control Panels. The RTCA DO-178B standard is one of the most stringent safety critical standards in the world, incorporating the most rigorous testing and traceability requirements of any industry. In order to meet these goals, Airbus Helicopters selected the VectorCAST/C++ and VectorCAST/Ada tools to obtain the most automated solution available for unit and integration testing of complex C/C++, and Ada code applications.

The UH-Tiger helicopter is a medium weight, multiple role support helicopter developed for the German Armed Forces. The aircraft is known for being the first all-composite, European-built helicopter and includes advanced features like a glass cockpit, stealth technology and tremendous agility for enhanced combat survivability. Airbus Helicopters is using VectorCAST products on projects such as the User Control Panels, and selected the testing solution because of the tool’s ease of test case development and execution in addition to its flexible reporting options.

“The VectorCAST tools help Airbus Helicopters ensure that complex applications meet DO178B standard,” said Bill McCaffrey, Chief Operating Officer, Vector Software. “Organizations that use automated testing solutions can more easily meet rigorous standards like DO-178B on time, and on budget.”
