NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — With the country of Columbia selecting AFuzion last week, AFuzion’s DO-278A Services have been provided to over fifteen companies and government entities in six countries on four continents. DO-278A is the mandatory guideline which makers of aviation ground and satellites based aviation systems are required to follow.

Says AFuzion’s Jack Jones, “AFuzion’s reputation in DO-278A Training and DO-278A services is rapidly gaining momentum. The Communication Navigation Systems and Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) is often considered the step-sister to DO-178C. Everyone knows AFuzion is the world’s largest and most-preferred DO-178C services provider. But where DO-178C is for airborne systems, DO-278A is for ground-based and satellite system. AFuzion has helped two satellite makers with DO-278A and DO-178C for the Iridium-based solutions. But AFuzion’s prowess in DO-278A Gap Analysis, DO-278A Compliance, and DO-278A Training is truly profound. It’s such a small world and 100% of these DO-278A clients have said they’d select AFuzion again. Gratifying.”

AFuzion’s engineers developed the world’s first DO-278 training, then upgraded that to the new version of DO-278A which also includes the ecosystem of ARP4754A, ED-153, DO-330, DO-331, and DO-332. AFuzion’s DO-278A compliance plans, templates, and checklists are proprietary and available only from AFuzion. Additional information is available here:

AFuzion’s DO-278A Training is provided onsite with free customization to meet client needs. It has been provided to over 1200 aviation engineers representing 15 countries; this is more than all the world’s other DO-278A services companies combined. AFuzion’s DO-278A training is available at client facilities anywhere worldwide, via two-day or three-day formats. AFuzion can also provide DO-278A Gap Analysis as it has done already for many clients in five different countries on CNS/ATM and satellites. The AFuzion DO-278A Gap Analysis requires an additional 3-days onsite with two week offsite analysis by the AFuzion senior engineering team comprised of 40 top expert engineers. All DO-278A Gap Analysis clients say it is worth “5-20 times the price” in Return On Investment. More AFuzion DO-278A Gap Analysis information is available here:

AFuzion recently updated its popular “Understanding DO-278A” whitepaper which was previously downloaded over 1500 times. It is available free from AFuzion’s world-largest technical proprietary whitepaper library which also includes AFuzion’s technical whitepapers on DO-178C, DO-254, DO-200B, ARP4754A, ARP4761A, and others.

Many DO-278A practicioners believe DO-278A is the same as DO-178C but for the ground versus air. Say’s AFuzion’s Chief Technical Officer Vance Hilderman “While DO-278A certainly has numerous identicalities with DO-178C, DO-278A’s Assurance Level (AL) 4 is uniquely adapted to the much greater COTS software usage within ground-based systems. AFuzion was selected for the key DO-278A services on the newly launched Irididum ADS-B capabilities, and we made good use of Service History and CAST-1 via DO-278A. AFuzion’s unique tool box for DO-278A Alternative Means of Compliance was profoundly instrumental in obtaining certification. The same is true for Australia’s new OneSky CNS/ATM System which also chose AFuzion from among many competitors. However, we also applied DO-178C to Iridium, and a DO-178C Gap Analysis. For airborne software DO-178C Services, users should visit the AFuzion website and simply download many helpful papers and tools to enable success.” Download AFuzion DO-178C information here:
