Genova was contracted to port the existing DLE software for the Fusion program, which runs on the Windows Operating System, to the LOS-178 Real-Time Operating System and add functionality for discovering and uploading databases/tables that reside on a remote file server (the Information Management System LRU). Software development was performed to DO-178B Level D. Our responsibilities included identifying and documenting the requirements of the DLE software, design and development of the associated software, development of test suites for verifying both the DLE software and ODL subsystem, and performing formal verification.
Genova Technologies supported a DARPA program to demonstrate a tactical airborne network. A few main goals of the demonstration were to perform dynamic awareness, multiple levels of security, and low latency data rates. Later in the prototype lifecycle, the tactical airborne waveform was ported to a Software Common Architecture (SCA) waveform and deployed for use.
