PITTSBURGH, Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Engineering simulation software company ANSYS has teamed with a Russian research institute to develop integrated, modular avionics systems.
The systems to be developed with GosNIIAS, a Russian state scientific research institute, will help Russian aircraft achieve international aerospace standards, ANSYS said.
Integrated modular avionics (IMA) is an emerging best practice led by airframers seeking an integrated avionics architecture that unifies disparate applications, such as flight controls and landing gear software.
The ANSYS- GosNIIAS team will develop "an off-the-shelf technology called SCADE Solutions for IMA that streamlines the code generation of avionics system architectures and creates an automatic IMA configuration table," ANSYS said. The software will provide significant time and financial savings during the overall product design process and also safety compliance for avionics components.
"We are pleased to partner with ANSYS to help introduce a more concrete process for the certification of IMA-compliant systems to this industry," said Sergey Yuryevich Zheltov, general director at GosNIIAS. "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."
"Combining ANSYS expertise in embedded technology with GosNIIAS' deep knowledge of the Russian aerospace market makes this partnership extremely valuable," said Eric Bantegnie, vice president of the embedded systems business unit at ANSYS. "It helps us tackle complex engineering challenges by providing a tool dedicated to IMA-based architectures while improving the safety and reliability of airborne systems."
