Validation Methods for Flight Crucial Systems 831421
To take advantage of aeronautical research for improving the performance of future aerospace vehicles, highly reliable digital electronic systems will be required to perform flight crucial functions. Research at NASA's Langley Research Center is focused on actively pursuing development of techniques to form the basis for a validation methodology that can determine the performance and reliability of advanced digital systems. The research includes development of analytical models, emulation techniques, and experimental procedures. The techniques and methods are verified using test specimens of fault-tolerant computers and systems and the capabilities of NASA's validation research laboratory, AIRLAB.
