A new research partnership between Ansys, a simulation technology company, and GosNIIAS, a Russian state scientific research institute that supports aviation systems development, is to aid compliance with worldwide aerospace standards in Russia.
The team is developing an off-the-shelf technology called SCADE Solutions for IMA (integrated modular avionics) that streamlines the code generation of avionics system architectures and creates an automatic IMA configuration table. IMA is an emerging best practice led by airframers who seek an integrated avionics architecture that unifies historically disparate applications, such as flight controls and landing gear software, to better meet worldwide safety standards. This software application is expected to provide significant time and financial savings during the overall product design process, and ensure product reliability.
Sergey Yuryevich Zheltov, general director at GosNIIAS, commented: ‘Ansys has been a long-term technology partner to GosNIIAS, and with today's increasingly complex avionics systems, we look forward to moving toward a more stable Russian aerospace industry.’
Eric Bantegnie, vice president of the embedded systems business unit at Ansys, added that the partnership will help the company to tackle complex engineering challenges by providing a tool dedicated to IMA-based architectures while improving the safety and reliability of airborne systems.
