Model-Based Testing for the Second Generation of Integrated Modular Avionics

Author: Christof Efkemann and Jan Peleska

In this paper the authors present the current research and development activities regarding automated testing of Integrated Modular Avionics controllers in the European research project SCARLETT. The authors describe the goals of the SCARLETT project and explain its background of Integrated Modular Avionics. Furthermore, they explain different levels of testing of components required for certification. A domain-specific modelling language designed for the IMA platform is presented. This language is used to create models from which tests of different levels can be generated automatically. The authors expect significant improvements in terms of effort to create and maintain test procedures compared to conventional test creation.
