HighRely Incorporated Completes A400M Avionics Upgrade Project: DO-178 & DO-254 EASA Certification Underway.
HighRely Incorporated has successfully completed a $1M avionics software and hardware optimization activity for the new A400M cargo aircraft. Adoption of significant engineering enhancements by HighRely engineers ensured A400M success as flight testing and EASA certification is now well underway. The key A400M avionics developer turned to HighRely to optimize its avionics software and hardware development processes per DO-178B and DO-254, update avionics architecture, train 200+ engineers and managers, and improve EASA certification success for DO-178 and DO-254.

The A400M is the world's newest and most advanced cargo plane, which required similarly advanced avionics certified by EASA, Europe's equivalent of the FAA. Says a senior program manager "We were selected to provide this advanced avionics suite because of our proven world-class engineering skills. We knew we could "succeed" but we also wanted to be the best in DO-178B software, DO-254 hardware, development, verification, certification, processes, skills and schedule attainment. So a major European competition was held, and HighRely of the U.S.A. won over many household names in the technical services business. HighRely was selected because of their proven ability in DO-178 and DO-254 certification, and their ability to create winning solutions in a cost-effective manner. One year later, we accomplished our "best" objectives and the client has delivered best-in-class avionics solutions. Flight testing is well underway. HighRely was profusely thanked for their outstanding contribution in helping to attain these objectives."

Adds Mr. Reza Madjidi, HighRely Co-founder and DER: "We analyzed every process within their avionics program and recommended improvement areas for implementing superior methods in avionics life-cycle development. New releases of A400M avionics will benefit from many improvements completed by HighRely." Adds fellow co-founder Vance Hilderman "The client engineers spent over 2000 hours in HighRely DO-178B and DO-254 avionics development and project management training sessions. These were custom developed by HighRely and based upon training that HighRely's trainers have previously provided to over 11,500 engineers and managers on five continents. The attendees were quick learners via HighRely's proprietary training materials and demonstrated great skill in absorbing and deploying best practices. HighRely onsite engineers subsequently assisted with software architectural improvements and DO-254 process improvements."
