The training will be delivered by industry experts:
Dr. Guillem Bernat - Rapita Founder
In 2004, Dr. Guillem Bernat founded Rapita Systems to commercialize technology for measurement-based worst-case execution time (WCET) analysis technology. Guillem has a PhD in Computer Science and is an expert in timing analysis for modern multicore processors.
Sam Thompson - Senior Multicore Analysis Engineer
Dr. Sam Thompson has worked in both the development of Rapita’s multicore solution as well as the delivery of customer projects on multicore platforms.
Karl Thyssen - Multicore Analysis Engineer
Karl is a Multicore Analysis Engineer who works in the delivery of customer projects on multicore platforms, specializing in software analysis.
Rapita Systems are experts in the field of DO-178C software verification and validation and over the last 10 years have developed a unique commercial solution to address the additional airworthiness objectives for multicore DO-178C/ED-12C projects, AC 20-193, AMC 20-193 and CAST-32A. Rapita is trusted by the world’s most prominent aerospace companies to provide tools and services for meeting AC 20-193 and AMC 20-193 objectives, for example Bell Textron, who are using Rapita's MACH178 solution for the Bell Invictus 360 next-gen rotorcraft.
The feedback from previous trainees has been very positive, with several participants noting that the training had given them some great practical methods that they could apply to their projects immediately.
"The presenters led us through the certification process from start to finish and I was finally able to really see where I fit into the project I'm on."
"[I] love the customized content and interactive discussion."
