Space DO-178C vs. ECSS-E-ST-40C

SYSGO Blog, Whitepapers, Space

Our whitepaper explores the complexities of software certification for space designs, focusing on the ECSS and DO-178C Safety standards. This comprehensive examination goes deeper into the booming European space industry's reliance on multi-core processors and real-time operating systems (RTOS) for Safety-critical control. It contrasts the ECSS certification used by the European Space Agency (ESA) with the DO-178C Avionics standard, highlighting key differences and similarities.

Learn more about how standards like ECSS-E-ST-40C and ECSS-Q-ST-80C ensure rigorous software engineering and product assurance. And discover the role of RTOS like PikeOS in managing mixed-criticality applications, enabling flexible, secure, and efficient satellite operations. We help to understand the significance of partitioning, Security measures, and modular Avionics in achieving high-level certification and operational efficiency.
