  • ARINC 615A ~ Software Data Loader using Ethernet Interface
  • ARINC 653 ~ Avionics Application Software Standard Interface
  • ARINC 661 ~ Cockpit Display System Interfaces to User Systems
  • ARINC 665 ~ Loadable Software Standards
  • ARINC 702 ~ Flight Management Computer System

MANNARINO uses its own proprietary software engineering processes to reverse engineer and verify software requirements per customer plans and standards.

MANNARINO has significant experience with model-based software development and automatic code generation including UML and Profiles, MATLAB/ SIMULINK, SCADE, IBM Rational Rhapsody, Beacon and GPU.

MANNARINO has developed the entire embedded software for some of our client’s products including boot strap software, on-line loaders, real-time executive software, driver software, application software and fault management software. We have significant experience with model-based software development and automatic code generation. We have worked on conventional single core processors as well as more advanced multi-core processors (Freescale/Motorola, Texas Instrument, NXP Semiconductors. STMicroelectronics). In addition, we have worked collaboratively with our customers using various work split models tailored to minimize program cost by utilizing our customer’s product expertise with our world-class RTCA/DO-178/C skill set.

MANNARINO has significant experience with both federated and IMA systems. We have worked on numerous federated systems ranging from FADEC to HUMS to aerial refueling systems. Our IMA experience ranges from selection of ARINC 653 RTOS software to the development of software partition applications.
