Safety is a key requirement for all aviation systems, including military airborne platforms. For these, the U.S. Department of Defense is promoting the implementation of open architecture solutions to enable more capable avionics hardware and software and to transition systems into the field faster and at lower cost. To meet this requirement, the Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE™) consortium developed an open architecture technical standard as well as business models for implementing FACE standards, which includes profiles for safety systems. But safety engineering practices are outside the domain of the FACE Technical Standard—these are left to industry best practices and existing safety processes such as RTCA DO-178C.

Join Wind River, Rapita Systems, and Collins Aerospace for an online panel discussion of these issues and more by aerospace and defense industry experts.

You will get answers to questions such as:

  • What is FACE and how is it benefitting today’s military airborne platforms?
  • FACE-conformant technology components are interchangeable, but are they equal?
  • How will FACE meet the safety challenges of next-generation military airborne systems?
