Collins Aerospace, an RTX subsidiary, is one of the world’s largest suppliers of aerospace and defense products. Collins Aerospace specializes in aerostructures, avionics, interiors, mechanical systems, mission systems, and power and control systems.
Rapita supports Collins Aerospace with enterprise verification tooling. The Rapita Verification Suite (RVS) enables Collins Aerospace to efficiently develop software up to and including DAL A software to DO-178C guidelines.
Collins Aerospace are an enterprise user of the RVS toolsuite. As RVS is used across multiple projects, it is vital for Collins Aerospace that their tool vendor provides expert support for their engineering teams when required. Furthermore, with locations across the world, Collins Aerospace needed a tool vendor that could deliver timely support across different time zones.
As well as delivering expertise in terms of using RVS tools, Collins Aerospace needed a tool vendor whose support team were genuine aerospace verification experts. It was important that Collins Aerospace would be provided with support that was oriented to making RVS fit within their existing DO-178C verification processes without changing how they work.
