Esterel Technologies Safety Team Targets Critical Embedded Development

Esterel Technologies, the leading worldwide provider of model-based development solutions for mission and safety-critical systems announce the formal creation of the Esterel Technologies Safety Team. This team of experts is focused purely on the domain specific needs in each of the critical software markets Esterel Technologies addresses with its SCADE family of products and associated professional services.

Since its inception, Esterel Technologies has had consultants in the field working with both clients and the certification authorities to best understand the requirements of software application development in the safety-critical domains. As a result of years of experience and numerous successful small and large scale project deployments, Esterel Technologies formally launches its safety team to ensure its clients’ safety critical requirements and concerns are completely assured in their development practices and ultimately the deployed product.

The Esterel Technologies Safety Team consists of experts in software development for rail, industrial, aerospace, defense, medical, and nuclear, application development. With the support of the Esterel Technologies Safety Team, Esterel’s clients will achieve shorter development cycles and higher quality products meeting safety objectives at a lower cost. Safety Team experts can offer gap analysis audit services, shorter ramp-up on development standards, plans and procedures, efficient model-based development guidance and support, as well as best practices in safety-critical development and certification.

Safety Team experts can leverage the Esterel Technologies SCADE family, consisting of SCADE Suite and SCADE Display, to offer efficient model-based development to safety-critical control and embedded display application developers respectively. As a further benefit, Esterel Technologies offers Certification Kits for aerospace development under DO-178B, rail application development under EN 50128, and industrial and transportation development under IEC 61508. These certification kits expedite certification according to these standards by providing all of the required artifacts to demonstrate that SCADE KCG itself has been certified as a development tool under these rigorous standards.

“We are very proud of the expertise that our company has gained over the years in these critical software development domains. Our Safety Team experts can offer the very best guidance the industry has to offer with respect to best practices, certification standards, and the certification process. The value this team brings to our customers is immense and we look forward to building this team further with the success of our customers”, said Eric Bantegnie, President and CEO of Esterel Technologies.
